Strenuous, stressful work can wear people down and damage their health. In that case, RETIRING can relax and reinvigorate their lives. They finally have time to follow their passions and pursue activities that enrich their lives. But for others, the risks of retirement can involve bad health and even early death, says the Wall Street Journal. Although you might think that retiring would give a person more time to go to the gym, watch their diets, take longer walks, and work on their physical fitness, the opposite often occurs. Many retirees become sedentary and watch too much TV. They eat too much. They drink too much. They smoke too much. And, sometimes, they die too soon. Researchers find that without the purpose of fulfilling work, many retirees can feel adrift and become depressed. We’ll review the Journal’s statistics on retirement that may SHOCK you! Then health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. Don’t miss it…MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

An annuity is a retirement account with “airbags” and a seat belt. Buyers invest a sum of money in a particular annuity, and in exchange, they’re guaranteed a steady monthly check for a set number of years, or for life, their choice. On an increasing basis, annuities are being used by retiring professionals to take the risk out of their nest eggs. In years past, pensions were common. Today, it is more common NOT to have a pension. The satisfaction rate on annuities is actually far higher than mutual funds. So why do low-information newspaper and internet journalists knock annuities? Because they are LOW on information! Today, we’ll fix that and we hope some uninformed journalists are listening in. Then Medicare and Health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.  You don’t want to miss today’s show…MASTERING MONEY IS ON THE AIR!!

For more than eight decades, the Social Security program has played a critical role in providing a financial foundation for our nation’s retired workers. Most people  build their  long term retirement plan around the certainty of a steady check from Social Security.    According to the Centers for Budget and Policy Priorities, the system singlehandedly pulls more than 15 million retirees out of poverty every year. It’s safe to say that without it, our nation would be in a constant state of recession.  Which is why it is alarming that the program faces serious financial hurdles in the years ahead. In fact, due to the COVID 19 Pandemic, the Social Security retirement fund could face depletion as early as 2030. Steve and I will review the details and the facts. Then Medicare and Health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.  A truly fact-filled show today that you don’t want to miss…MASTERING MONEY  is on the air!!!

The smart way to build retirement wealth  is with a smarter financial bucketing plan to segment and sequester your capital into clear and distinct financial buckets, each with its own specific task and time deadline. Each dollar should have a job to do, and be good at doing it.  Traditionally, bonds were the tool of choice for protecting a portfolio from market loss while providing competitive income. That is no longer the case. Steve will tell you about a new solution that you won’t want to miss. MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!

The facts remain:  women have a better chance of making it to age 100 than men — in fact, 82% of the 53,364 centenarians alive in 2010 were female. The ratio of females to males @ age 100 remains pretty steady. It’s why you hear the statistic that eighty percent of men die married, while eighty percent of WOMEN… die single.  The big problem for women is that they may spend ten years or longer on their own after their husbands pass–at a time when they may not want to be fussing over investments.  It’s been found that Baby Boomers’ number one financial fear is running out of money while still in their eighties and then living into their nineties dead broke while the government robs Social Security. We’ll see if that fear is justified today, and then health insurance expert SHELLEY GRANDIDGE joins us.   A timely show you don’t want to miss, MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
