By listening to this podcast, you've already shown an interest in improving your retirement. But have you taken the next step and spoken to someone about improving it?
This week, Rick walks us through what a typical first meeting with them would go like.
Having a diversified stock portfolio is great, but it doesn't mean you have a diversified retirement plan.
This week, Rick discusses the difference, and why it's important to focus on the latter as you prepare for retirement.
The Medicare Annual Election Period
You have until December 7th to choose the plan that will best suit you for the upcoming year. This week, Rick talks about the importance of reviewing your options and not just keeping your same plan from 2020 without seeing if any changes have been made.
Being "Financially Nimble" In Retirement
Financial advisors always look for indicators to see where the markets and economy are headed, and activity with the Federal Reserve might suggest that tough times are coming.
This week, Rick and Granger discuss how to prepare for those tough times, and how to be financially nimble through those times.
Coming Up Short In Retirement
So far, Congress has approved more than $6 trillion in stimulus spending to help get us through the pandemic, and there's still talk of more to come. But while Uncle Sam can just print more money as they see fit, we don't have that option when it comes to funding our retirement.
This week, Rick and Granger discuss options if someone finds themselves coming up short.
Is Newer Always Better?
That's what they tried to tell us back in 1985 when the compact disc was set to make the vinyl album obsolete. Fast forward 35 years, and vinyl sales are out-selling CDs. There's something to be said for the old way- like talking with a real person about your retirement plans vs a robo-advisor. This week, Rick discusses some of those benefits, and more.
