Olde Tyme Banker, the comment was not directed at you. I had sat through the CFP program and it was intense and interesting. (In banking 30 years at that point and figured investing would be a snap. Everything I knew was covered in the first hour of the first class!) Just passing along general information.

There is a radio personality Clark Howard who provides some fairly easy to understand financial information. (He is also referred to as "America's Cheapskate" because of his thrifty advice.) He came out with a full explanation of Fiduciary Financial Advisors which I found informative, Link attached.

Thank you. I will confess that for years I have paid zero attention to Medicare info, reasoning that it would most likely change 10 times before I was eligible. Now our insurance advisor has given us 3 books on it. Yipes.

The most dangerous thing that you can do is not sign up and pay for your chosen Medicare coverage when you turn 65 if you delay drawing SS. To sign up later can involve significant penalties.

Congratulations Skittles. Green with envy! My retirement date is written on an index card under my desk mat. It is in 2026, which seems far away, but the last two years have gone by incredibly fast. Hope the next few do too. I'm still hoping that my darling husband can find a way for me to retire sooner via our investments. We recently signed a purchase agreement for our retirement home and are waiting for it to be built. It will make for a longer commute, but it will be well worth it. Something to look forward to.

Here's to RETIREMENT!! smile

I'm joining the retirement club! I'll be retiring at the end of 2021. I decided I just couldn't hold out to 65! Even so, I'm still surprised at how excited I am getting about it!

Sleeping late, breakfast whenever, shopping when everyone is at work, napping when you want and everyday a Saturday is not as cracked up as everyone expects. (It's better)

Congrats DEL, I can't wait to join the club. If my plan works, less than 2 years.
Enjoy smile
