Plus, in our headlines segment, we’ll talk to Peter Polson (CEO of Tiller) about Apple’s new credit card offering, which was announced just last week. While it’s been getting a lot of hype from the media, is the card worth it? We’ll break down the features of the new card, perceived benefits from it, and how this offering stacks up against others.
Also, we’ll dive into one piece from Barrons that could throw a big wrench in a few retirement plans. Are you counting on your primary residence to finance your retirement? We’ll discuss why that may not be the best strategy for your golden years. The Barron’s piece calls it a trap, but do we agree?
Later on, we’ll throw out the Haven Life Line to Les, who owes extra tax this year due to his 1099 income. Les also receives a W2 from his employer. Could he request extra withholding from his employer to cover his

During out letter’s segment we’ll tear open a letter from Nathan, who’s wondering what he should do with his 457 plan. You can read his letter below:
I have a 457 plan through work. It’s approx 70/30 Traditional/Roth. I’m leaving soon for another job with a 457 but no match. Do I:
1) Leave it where it’s at?
2) Transfer to my new job’s plan even though there’s no match?
3) Transfer to my TSP even though my TSP is all Roth currently?
4) Transfer to a traditional IRA and convert into my current Roth? My wife will only work half this year and we’re having our 2nd kid. I believe I’ll be able to cover the necessary taxes.
We’re only 32 and are fairly aggressive with our retirement savings (roughly 25% of our income).
