In true Stacking Benjamins fashion today we’re all about the Tooth Fairy. A new Delta Dental study shows that the Tooth Fairy is leaving less money for children’s teeth. Does this mean the economy is weakening? Does it mean that the value of teeth are lower? Helping us out today we welcome special guest Susan Beacham from MoneySavvy.com. Also on today’s motley crew, is Paula Pant from AffordAnything.com, and rounding out our gang is Len Penzo from the LenPenzo.com blog.
Halfway through the show, we’ll take a break from our discussion with Susan and the rest of the gang to cover a long running IRA problem. Have you been looking for a place to make investing in alternative investments easier inside of your IRA? During our Fintech segment Joe will talk to Eric Satz, CEO of IRA company Alto, about what his company is doing to help streamline the process.
Then we’ll answer a Magnify Money call for help from Lauren, who wants to save money for her kid’s college fund, but is weary about the restrictions that come with using a traditional 529 plan. What other college savings vehicles are available for her?
As always, of course, we’ll still save some time for Doug’s trivia.
