This week on the podcast, I’m answering your questions about how the coronavirus crisis impacts retirement. I recently opened up a voicemail box that listeners (and newsletter subscribers) can use to ask questions – and I’m going to keep doing that as the crisis goes on.
On this week’s program, I tackle these questions submitted by listeners:
- My husband lost his job recently – should he roll over his 401(k) to an IRA?
- What will the impact of the crisis on the Social Security and Medicare trust funds?
- Does dollar cost averaging work work with active mutual funds?
- Can I delay an IRA contribution until July, now that the IRS has pushed back the deadline for filing tax returns to that date?
- Should I plan to delay my retirement a couple years, if I can make that work?
I’ll be recruiting top experts to answer your questions, and I’ll answer a few on my own, too. This week, we get expert input from:
- Sheryl Garrett, founder of the Garrett Planning Network;
- Jeff Ptak, the head of global manager research at Morningstar;
- Ed Slott, the well-known expert on IRAs
- Paul Van Der Water, senior fellow at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
