FREE FINANCIAL PLANNING ASSISTANCE
Kiplinger's Personal Finance & NAPFA
(FRIDAY, JANUARY 30)
For the eighth time, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine is working with the NAPFA (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors) Consumer Education Foundation to provide free, objective financial planning advice for consumers. The beginning of the New Year is a great time to get your financial checkup.
NAPFA (http://napfa.org) is the leading professional organization for fee-only financial advisors. Regardless of your current stage of life, this is a great opportunity to jumpstart your financial plan (follow through on your New Years resolution!) and address questions you may have about retirement savings, estate planning, taxes, insurance, college savings, etc. Last year, more than 12,000 people received assistance. Typically, fee only planners charge an hourly rate of $100 to $250.
Make sure you have relevant documents on hand to make the most of your time. If your question(s) are too complex to be addressed on the spot, you may be directed to the NAPFA site to find a planner in your area. A planner can aid you in making rational [rather than emotional] financial decisions. The services are available to anyone.
