  • I'm a wealth advisor, focused on helping people within five years of retirement to figure out how they can retire and manage their wealth.
  • I studied economics at the University of Delaware and later got a job with Morgan Stanley, and that's what launched me into doing what I do now.
  • My why is to try to help people make the best of their situation and not be in a bad situation due to either not knowing what they're doing or just getting bad advice.
  • When referring to Roth money, you pay tax on that money as you earn it.
  • Upon qualification, you can put your Roth Money into the Roth account where it grows tax-deferred, and as long as the tax rates stay the way they are, the money comes out tax free.
  • The real way to determine on whether to go for a Roth account or a traditional 401K is by looking at what your current tax bracket is, and what you think your future tax brackets are.
  • Most people that make it to retirement age will need some type of long-term care help, and therefore health insurance is important to cater for the cost.
