Emma Johnson was dependent on her husband’s income when her marriage fell apart. Left with two young children and little income, she had to learn how to put her financial house in order in a hurry. We’ll talk about how she did it on today’s show.
In our headline segment today we’ll tackle the current legislation heading through Congress. Reports suggested that pre-tax 401(k) plans were in the crosshairs. Did they survive? Also, Brynne from FemmeFrugality.com joins us to talk about PTSD and investing. While it’s often seen as an affliction of those who’ve served in the military, that’s only about 20 percent of all PTSD cases. We talk about the issues around PTSD including goal setting, risk, identifying that you have it, and how to get treatment.
We’ll also throw out the Haven Life Line to Scott, who asks about some advice he received from an advisor recently. Do we think that this advisor gave him good advice when she said he should hold off on investing in stocks until valuations lower. Then we answer a letter from a listener who asks about long term care. What do you need to know? It’s an important topic and I’m glad we can discuss it on today’s podcast.
