Raising financial literacy rates in the country is not only important for the population at large, but especially for military service members. That’s why we’re honoring service members this Veteran’s Day with some HUGE advice from Ellie Kay, founder of the Heroes at Home program. The program provides military members and their families financial education on how to get out of debt, save more, and how to make their dollar go further. Today she’ll share resources for veterans and current military members alike, plus there are LOTS of takeaways for those of you who aren’t military-related.
During our headlines segment, we’ll take a look at another brokerage firm slashing fees and the reactions of two other CEOs in the industry. Are you missing out by not chasing lower fees? We’ll give our thoughts, plus, cover a second piece about the wife of a convicted Ponzi scheme fraudster. She’s recently plead guilty to trying to cash in on $26,000 in credit card points – points earned from the Ponzi scheme of course.
Later in the show, we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Peter, who has recently become an uncle. Peter wants to set up his niece with some investments to help her later in life, but he’s not sure what to do. He doesn’t want to lock up the money in education funds, but he doesn’t want it freely available either. Options?
