How to Forecast Your Expenses in Retirement
What will you actually need to spend in retirement? Joe and Big Al explain how to really think about and calculate your retirement expenses. Plus, if you want to reduce your tax-deferred account balances, does it make more sense to do Roth conversions or reinvest? What about doing Roth conversions to a higher tax bracket than the one you’ll be in during retirement? Also, the fellas explain the alternative minimum tax, how Social Security spousal benefits work, and when in the year you turn 72 you must take required minimum distributions from your retirement accounts. And finally, what should someone with no credit history who hasn’t paid taxes do with a sudden $100,000 windfall?

Life Insurance, Muni Bonds, and Dividend Stocks in Retirement
Joe and Big Al discuss LIRPs, or life insurance retirement plans, they spitball whether to take full pension survivor benefits or buy a life insurance policy, and whether to sell losing stocks for even bigger losers to take advantage of the 0% capital gains tax bracket. Plus, zero coupon municipal bonds and the de minimis rule, and target date funds as part of Paul Merriman’s Two Funds for Life strategy. Finally, how do dividends figure into the 4% rule for retirement withdrawals, and should that 4% come from stocks or bonds?

Roth IRA 5-Year Rules: How to Withdraw Money With No Taxes or Penalties
Joe and Big Al clarify once and for all those 5-year clocks for withdrawing money from your Roth accounts. How do the 5-year Roth IRA rules impact the taxation of dividend income? Do the 5-year rules for Roth withdrawals impact thrift savings plan (TSP) to Roth conversions as well? Plus, why contribute to a Roth in the first place and lose today’s tax savings? Joe and Big Al rise to that challenge and they discuss Roth conversions and required minimum distributions from an inherited IRA.

Love the Humor
I used to listen to Bob Brinker on Saturday and Sunday’s for years until he retired from radio. I found Joe and Al’s podcast a few years ago and always look forward to their weekly podcast. It’s so educational and humorous! Thanks again, Robert
I laugh and learn while listening to Your Money, Your Wealthy! Deeper than most financial podcasts but Joe and Al always walk through their thoughts so we can follow. Love this!
Entertaining Financial Advice? This Is It!
Tuesday is the day Your Money Your Wealth downloads to my podcast feed, usually around 10:00 am EST. Why am I fixed on this day and time? Because I really look forward to it—in a way that I can’t say applies to any other podcast (though I listen to lots). Joe, Al, and Andi are a great team, and their willingness to answer complex financial questions from listeners (sometimes long-winded, which Joe might complain about, though he’ll answer anyway) is remarkable. Every episode is filled with information, and there are show notes posted on the show’s website that are extremely helpful to read over if there’s an super-detailed discussion. And all this is actually entertaining, not dry and never boring. If you don’t laugh out loud once or twice per podcast, and smile even more, then you must be having a very bad day. Listen, learn, and laugh!
