Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

 

 Enjoying berries now that they are in season?

Remember do not wash them until you’re
ready to enjoy them.   Moisture is bad for raspberries, blackberries, and especially blueberries,
fostering mold and rotting.

Remember: Don’t scour until you’re ready to devour.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
The Story of Barbara…

Meet Barbara – she is a 73 year old widow who has $400,000 in CDs at Wells Fargo Bank. Barbara has social security benefits and a small monthly pension from her working years. The CD money is the source of the income that she needs to close the gap between her monthly income needs and what her social security and pension provides.

In 2009 that $400,000 provided her $18,800 in additional monthly income that gave her a comfortable life. Since 2009 however her income from the CDs has plummeted to $920 a year. That is a stunning 96% drop.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

In celebration of May being National Salad Month, make a salad in a different way tonight. You can pile a salad on top of a piece of broiled chicken or fish.

How about a salad that contains

leftover strips of steak or chicken.

But whatever you do include all those healthy greens (preferably organic) in your everyday meals.  

 

When they say “Go Green” maybe that’s what they mean.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS

Naming a Trust as an IRA Beneficiary

 

If you have or plan to set up a Multi-Generational IRA strategy for your loved ones, Private Letter Ruling (PLR) 201430022 reminds us that naming a trust as the beneficiary of your IRA eliminates the opportunity for each beneficiary to stretch Required Minimum Distributions or RMDs over their individual life expectancies as the remaining IRA assets continue to grow on a tax-deferred basis.

READ MORE HERE  ABOUT A TRUST AS AN IRA BENEFICIARY

If you plan to name your trust as the beneficiary of your IRA, be sure that you have all the facts and seek advice from qualified professionals to ensure your trust will operate according to your distribution plan. You don’t want to risk inadvertently destroying a Multi-Generational IRA you planned to set up for your heirs.

Call Marc for answers and solutions to your financial questions.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
Who Inherits Your IRA?

Who will get the money in your IRA if something happens to you?  How can you be sure?

You might be surprised to learn that Uncle Sam, in his tax man guise, could take 35% to 80% of your IRA assets, depending on the state you live in. Unless you make sure your retirement plan is set up correctly, the U.S. government may be the primary beneficiary of your IRA when you die, but it does not have to be that way.

READ MORE HERE ABOUT YOUR IRA AND WHO INHERITS IT

If you have questions, then you should possibly give Marc a call – he looks forward to it!  What do you think?

How To Enjoy Life In The Present Moment even if that moment is crazy-making!

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

We know that dark chocolate is good for you. But how about milk chocolate? Dark has half the sugar and four times the fiber. Has more magnesium, phosphorous, and twice the potassium as milk chocolate.

Make sure you buy a bar that contains at least 70% cacao – that’s where the benefits come from.

But just a few squares please!

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES

EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS
What is the “Distribution” Phase of Retirement?

At a certain point in our lives, we are faced with important choices that could help defer or mitigate taxes. We spend the majority of our working years saving and accumulating assets, but then what?

As we grow older, we leave a period of relative complacency about money and transition into a more critical period of anxiety and fear during the distribution phase, the time when we begin to tap into our sources of income during retirement.
