Tips for Effective Financial Management

  • Take advantage of senior discounts wherever you can, and don’t be shy in asking for them.
  • Do not invest with someone you don't know.  Scams targeted at retirees abound.  Your investment opportunities should be carefully researched and verified by reputable professionals.
  • Be informed.  From your investments to your insurance you’ll want to audit your current portfolio and policies and make the necessary changes to reflect your needs and preferences as a retiree.
  • Create a complete and detailed listing of your financial, investment, insurance and trust products and put a copy in your safe deposit box.
