    Episode 368 - Aging, Medical Care and Estate Planning - A Legal Perspective

    Episode 368 - Aging, Medical Care and Estate Planning - A Legal Perspective

    On today’s show, elder law attorney Deborah Rysso, of the Rysso Law firm in Traverse City, will discuss navigating all things related to aging, care and estate planning from a legal perspective. Deb has extensive experience with the application of legal documents and how they interact with life’s realities. It’s amazing how interactive the documents of law intersect with the workings of care, family relationships and financial planning. Deb’s real-life stories of what she sees on a weekly basis, helping her clients navigate, will certainly be beneficial to many of our listeners. As we discuss these points with Deb, we are also very excited to share her knowledge of Medicaid planning, the limits of these planning options and, in many cases, where they might be best applied. We are looking forward to hosting Deb and think you will enjoy and benefit from hearing!

    Episode 367 - Strategies Regarding Defined Benefit/Contribution Plans and Withdrawals

    On today’s show, Dennis will detail the characteristics of Defined Benefit Plans and Defined Contribution Plans – including their advantages and disadvantages. So if you have questions about your plans, or want to better understand, this show is for you!
    Because every investor’s needs are different, when planning for retirement, it is essential to map out a withdrawal strategy. Heidi will discuss the importance of understanding the portfolio reliance rate, which can help in planning for your future. She’ll also take a look at and further discuss how volatility affects withdrawals, how to tell if an investor relies too heavily on their investment portfolio, what determines a withdrawal rate, and the value of reducing withdrawal stress. And, as always, Deann will be sure to enlighten and educate our listeners by sharing stats in regard to our current economy. We look forward to answering all your questions via air, please text or phone.

    Episode 363 - The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

    Episode 363 - The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men

    Today’s show title refers to the old axiom that no matter how well things are planned, unexpected problems may arise. 
    As we age, we may need some help with the details related to our financial lives that only very few can handle. Today’s guests are representatives from Fiduciary Services North. They will discuss the services they provide and understand when they may be needed. Things may not always go as planned. For instance, suppose you had anticipated being fully independent until your last day, but given today’s financial complexities, you need help with the basics of managing your monthly bills. Or, you have real estate that needs to be taken care of, and you’re not able to manage the property(ies) on your own. On the other hand, what if the probate court steps in and requires a guardianship be established to protect you and your estate from potential scammers? We’ll talk about estate settlement, court-appointed conservatorships and durable powers of attorney. Deann will bring stats to help with the details.
    We’re thinking you’ll have lots of questions, so … tune in and take control!

    Episode 359 - Opportunities Abound, but Not Always for the Faint of Heart

    Episode 359 - Opportunities Abound, but Not Always for the Faint of Heart

    This recent market analysis by Capital Group got our attention:
    Over the last couple of years, the gap in both returns and valuations between small cap and large cap stocks has expanded against the backdrop of tighter monetary policy.
    To further summarize, a well-known index is trading near a 20-year low on a relative basis versus large caps. Limiting your exposure to these assets will limit your risk, but it is always interesting to see where the opportunities might lie in our allocation strategies for the future. We believe you, too, will find it interesting as we discuss why this information could be helpful to your portfolio. Next, Heidi will discuss what retirees can do right now to reduce next year’s taxes, backed by some great quotes from our IRA tax consultant, Ed Slott. Finally, Deann will share stats that better illustrate the subject at hand.

    Episode 358 - Who Knew?

    Amidst all the blather about an election (you remember, right?), where are the opportunities? Today, we’ll discuss the realities markets have historically experienced during an election year,  how investors have responded, and the mistakes investors made. Long-time money manager, The Capital Group, will provide us stats going all the way back to 1933. We’ll also discuss recent moves in the gold market … so hold on to your hats on this one! Also, Nathan will discuss some very interesting findings from LPL Group that, we found, should be particularly helpful. And Heidi will discuss the rules of engagement for Roth IRAs and 529 plan conversions SECURE 2.0 Act. Deann will bring the stats to add to the conversation. So much to talk about! We truly appreciate you, our listeners, and we’re glad to be back live this Thursday!

    Episode 357 - Ch-Ch-Changes!

    Episode 357 - Ch-Ch-Changes!

    On today’s show, we’ll hear about the changes that the Marsh brothers at Bill Marsh Automotive Group are experiencing as they sell their long-held business to Serra Motors. About three years ago, in 2021, the Marsh brothers came on the New Retirement Radio Show to share their experience and knowledge gained over the years with their joint management of the business. They return today to discuss their transition out of Marsh Auto and shed light on this period – what they are learning from it from a business standpoint, and what they hope to personally accomplish in this next phase of their lives. As with all our shows, we hope to provide all our listeners a learning experience, whether you’re a business owner, thinking of retirement or are newly retired. We are very excited to hear from them, and hope you’ll tune in for a very active conversation with Bill Jr., Jamie and Mike Marsh.
