Monthly Pension or Lump-sum Payment?

December 9, 2017

Jim, Chris and Justin answer an email from a listener in Maine on whether the listener’s wife should take the monthly payment option or a lump sum payout from her pension plan. Another listener (state unknown) wondered why his IRA account was now identified by his brokerage firm as a “grandfathered” account. Jim and Chris also include a rebroadcast of the December 9th Colorado Retirement and IRA Show where they answered two questions. What is a good investment mix for a recent college graduate saving in a 401(k)? And how do you take money our of a Roth IRA to pay for college expenses?
