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.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

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.

WATCH OUT FOR THE “WIN A 2 DAY CRUISE” SCAM

A friend of mine received a phone call last month requesting her to answer three questions in order to win a 2-day paid cruise to the Bahamas.  She answered the simple questions and then was connected to a man who eventually asked for two $50 deposits to hold a cruise ship cabin for up to 18 months on a very well known cruise line.  DO NOT FALL FOR THESE TYPES OF PHONE CALLS – HANG UP IMMEDIATELY!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
IRA One-Rollover-Per-Year Rule Beginning
January 1, 2015

The IRS recently announced (announcement 2014-15) that beginning as early as January 1, 2015, taxpayers can make only one rollover from an IRA to another (or the same) IRA in any 12-month period, regardless of the number of IRAs they own. IRS Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs), will be updated to reflect this new interpretation when it officially becomes effective.

CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

While it’s important to avoid giving tax advice, it’s worth explaining the difference between a direct transfer and a rollover contribution to our client.

For more information, visit the IRS website and review the rule.

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:

Pumpkins are not just for pumpkin pie

or good fall decoration.

Consider adding pumpkin seeds to your diet

on a regular basis.

Among other benefits, eating pumpkin seeds a few hours before bed, along with a carbohydrate like a small piece of fruit, may help promote a restful night’s sleep

IRREGULAR CHECK CARD ACTIVITY

If you receive an email that starts “Irregular Check Card Activity” do not go further. Delete it immediately. The scammers want you to click on to a website that could give them access to your personal information.

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.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Alternative Planning Strategies

Most people are already familiar with investments such as stocks and bonds, which are great to include in your overall financial plan.  Many people, however, are less familiar with incorporating alternative SAFE options like Fixed Indexed Annuities and Life Insurance into their financial plan.

Fixed Indexed Annuities are conservative, safe products and some offer the security of knowing you will have a guaranteed income stream that you cannot outlive.

Besides a death benefit for your heirs, Life Insurance can also be used to generate income during your life. As with any insurance product, it is important to always discuss the suitability of a Fixed Indexed Annuity or Life Insurance with a licensed professional who can help you determine what product may or may not be best for you and your personal situation.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

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.

NOVEMBER ANNUAL SALES

Put fresh batteries in your smoke detectors.  Reuse old batteries from those detectors in other devices such as a TV remote control. These old batteries will run for a long time; you just should not trust your life to year-old batteries.

Do all Christmas shopping by Thanksgiving. You can get better deals before the hectic days of Dec. and you will avoid the crowds.

Turkeys are often inexpensive.  Buy several and freeze.

Check all doors, windows for drafts.  Clean your furnace and change filters.  This is a good time to clean windows so they let in more light and even clean light bulbs, lamp shades and light fixtures so that you get the maximum light.

You also might consider putting long-lasting and efficient fluorescent bulbs in dark hallways and stairways and leaving them on most of the evening.  The energy cost will be minimal and the light will help prevent falls and accidents in these accident prone areas.

Tune your car before winter starts.  Do a winter automobile check up.  Get antifreeze early; the price always goes up in the winter.

TYPICAL ANNUAL SALES: Shoes, boys clothing, blankets.

MAJOR PURCHASES TYPICALLY ON SALE: Appliances, used cars.

TRAVEL: November is a great time to go to Florida when it is often a good bargain and less crowded.

FRUITS AND VEGETABLES: apples, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cranberries, endive, grapefruit, grapes, lima beans, mushrooms, parsley, rutabagas, winter squash, turnips.  NOTE: With some produce now available all during the year, many people have forgotten when fruits and vegetables are really fresh.  Buying in season means that these items are often cheaper, fresher, taste better and that money may be going to local farmers.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Regardless of your age, make every effort to be fit.

We’re way beyond vanity here – we’re talking about continuing good health. Extra fat particularly around the stomach area can prevent some vitamins

and minerals from absorption.

Your waist measurement in inches should be

no more than half your height, in inches.

beware1

TELEPHONE SCAM ALERT – It has been reported that a new scam that is being used to bilk people is that a call will come on your phone with the caller ID of 911. The caller identifies as a representative of the IRS and says that you must come up with x amount of money immediately or you will be arrested. THIS IS NOT THE IRS. Do not comply

Be sure that if you are called that you report it to the Police Department immediately!

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

Social Security Adjustments Announced for 2015

The Social Security Administration announced a 1.7% increase for benefits in 2015 due to a cost-of-living (COLA) adjustment.

Based on an increase in average wages, the Social Security Administration announced a 1.3% increase in the 2015 wage base for computing the Social Security tax (OASDI). In 2015, the base will be adjusted to $118,500, just $600 shy of the projected amount.

Employees are subject to a 6.2% OASDI tax on the first $118,500 earned.

How does this look in the real world? If an employee earns $118,500 in 2015, the employee and the employer each will pay about $7,347 in OASDI taxes.

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.
