MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Why Choose an Indexed Annuity?

An indexed annuity provides the opportunity to benefit from potential gains in the equity markets, while paying a stated minimum interest rate during market downturns. An indexed annuity is a compromise between a fixed interest annuity and a variable annuity.

The return on an indexed annuity varies more than a fixed interest annuity, but not as much as a variable annuity.  As a result, an indexed annuity has more risk and more potential return than a fixed interest annuity, but less risk and less potential return than a variable annuity.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
What Is An Annuity?

An annuity is a long-term savings plan that can be used to accumulate assets on a tax-deferred basis for retirement and/or to convert retirement assets into a stream of income.  While both are insurance contracts, an annuity is the opposite of life insurance:

Life insurance provides financial protection against the risk of dying prematurely.

An annuity provides financial protection against the risk of living too long and being
without income during retirement.

There are two basic types of annuities, depending on whether you need to accumulate assets for retirement or whether you’re at or near retirement and interested in creating a lifetime retirement income:

Deferred Annuities
A deferred annuity has two distinct phases: the accumulation phase and the income phase.

During the accumulation phase, you contribute premiums to the annuity, where they accumulate on a tax-deferred basis until needed for income purposes.

During the income phase, the value of the annuity is converted into income payments.

Immediate Income Annuities
An immediate income annuity is purchased with a single premium and income payments begin immediately or shortly after the premium is paid.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW  

BEFORE LOANING MONEY TO FAMILY

Avoid bitter feelings and awkward family get-togethers by following this money-loaning advice.

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK? SHOULDERS? LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices. Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment. And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication. I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

If you’re baking this season, be sure to include cinnamon as one of the ingredients – use it in both sweet and savory dishes because not only does it smell good,
it’s an extremely healthy spice.

It’s good for your blood, your heart, and your brain.  So make sure you add it to many recipes – your house will smell delicious and your body will appreciate it.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
CD Rates Got You Down?

It has been my experience that most CD owners are disappointed with the low rates that they are currently receiving. I checked today and the average interest rate for a six-month CD  is under 1%. In all my years as an advisor, these are some of the lowest rates on a CD that I have ever seen.

Recently, my clients have started to ask me more questions regarding their CDs, and when I ask them why they were in CDs in the first place the answer they give me is inevitably that they didn’t know what else to do with the money. Many people invest in CDs because they feel that they are safe and secure. But are they?

READ MORE HERE  ABOUT CURRENT CD RATES

Please call Marc today so he can run you a personal comparison of your current CD against these alternatives-you will be amazed by how much money can be saved. This comparison is completely free, as part of his tax services to you this year, so please take advantage of it and let’s help get you more than your current 1%!

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?  LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Cranberries have been used for years for various medicinal purposes – helping with bladder problems

as well as gum disease.

In fact Native Americans used them

to fight all infections.

They are naturally low in sugar, sodium, and fat and are high in vitamins C, K, and E.

So at Thanksgiving make that second helping

the dish with all those cranberries.

WISHING YOU COMFORT, HOPE
AND JOY FOR THANKSGIVING

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS

How to get the money from Dad

(A Case Study from Archer Weiss)

Jon is age 59. He is married with three grown children. He wasn’t sure how he should name the beneficiaries of his IRA monies – in trust or to the children directly.

Solution:

Unless there are special needs, leaving money to a trust may prove to be a very costly tax burden to his heirs. Therefore, Jon’s three adult children can be named as Designated Beneficiaries of his IRA monies. This means they must be identified as a natural person with a date of birth and social security number. In addition, they must be left a whole percentage of the IRA under current IRS rules.

 

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

5 BIGGEST VISION QUESTIONS, ANSWERED
Find out whether or not carrots really do improve vision, the best way to relieve dry eyes and more.
PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK?  SHOULDERS?
LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation.  Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices.  Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment.  And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication.  I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Why are nutritionists so sweet on sweet potatoes?    

 

Consider that they have anti-inflammatory nutrients, help with control of sugar, and contain Vitamins B6, C, and D.  They also prove to be good sources of iron, magnesium, and potassium.

So this Thanksgiving be sure to include some sweet potato dishes on your table.

 

beware1

The newest virus circulating is the UPS/Fed Ex/USPS Delivery Failure.  You will receive an e-mail from UPS, Fed Ex, or  USPS along with a packet number.  It will say that they were  unable to deliver a package sent to you on such-and-such a date.  It  then asks you to print out the invoice copy attached.

 

DON’T TRY TO PRINT THIS. IT LAUNCHES A VIRUS!

 

Pass this warning on to everyone you know because this virus has caused millions of dollars in damage in the past few days.

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Inheriting More Than One IRA: What You Can and Can’t Do

What happens when you inherit more than one IRA? Can they be combined into one account? Do you have to take required minimum distributions (RMDs) from each account separately or can the distributions be aggregated?

The answer will depend on who the inherited account came from as well as what type of account it is.

MORE INFORMATION HERE

It is all too easy to lose an inherited retirement account because of a simple mistake. Beneficiaries should consider consulting with an expert in this area in order to preserve their inheritance for as long as possible.  That’s what they are here for…to help you!

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT JUMP?

Jump! is a non-profit organization that helps seniors achieve what’s left on their bucket list, and inspires them to reach for their dreams.

Jump! was started and inspired by Webb Weiman, who had to up grow up quickly because of  much illness in the family.  He knew that seniors have dreams that sometimes go unfulfilled and decided to do something to help along these lines.

The first participant he worked with was Estelle Eisenberg who went skydiving on her 90th birthday followed by Edna Baldwin who at 91, went race car driving in Irwindale, CA.  As Webb says, “Inspiration comes in many different forms, and whether you want to participate or recommend a friend, we look forward to building our family, one Jump! at a time.

So if you have dreams that you want to realize take a look at his  WEBSITE .   There you will be able find his “Jumpisodes”.  He’s doing an amazing job!

PAIN IN YOUR UPPER BACK? SHOULDERS? LOWER BACK?

Have you tried a TENS unit?

TENS stands for transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. Many people are finding relief from certain types of pain using these small devices. Instead of using painkilling medications, try using one of these alternative types of treatment. And there are no side effects using a TENS unit as there are when taking medicine for pain.

And in some cases, the use of these devices could help to cut down on the use of excessive pain medication. I personally have found amazing results using one of these units.

Go see Tal at Topanga Plaza on the lower level at his kiosk across from Victoria’s Secret and try one of these pain relieving units.   You will be amazed how efficiently they will help to relieve some types of discomfort.
