Retirement is supposed to be easy. This is the time in your life when you want to start relaxing and enjoying your life. You have put in your time…you want to reap the rewards. Twenty years ago, the secret to retirement was to move half of your money to bonds paying five to seven percent…. You got the SAFETY you needed– and typically enough interest to keep you from worrying about your money.

Today, Steve and I will break down what a huge risk you may be taking, and how to fix it. Then CPA Nick Stefaniak joins us for the Q &A to talk taxes.
