Peggy makes it pretty clear that she enjoys the business and loves helping her customers.

This week, Nick Zerillo, of Sovereign Financial Group, shares with us an article that explains more details about 401(k) plans, and how to utilize them most effectively.
Managing Your 401(k)
More than 73 million Americans actively participate in employer-sponsored defined contribution plans such as 401(k), 403(b), and 457 plans. If you are among this group, you’ve taken a big step on the road to retirement, but as with all investing, it’s important to understand your plan and what it can do for you. Here are a few ways to make the most of this workplace benefit.
Take the free money. Many companies match a percentage of employee contributions, so you may want
to save enough to receive a full company match and any available profit sharing. Some workplace plans
have a vesting policy requiring that workers be employed by the company for a certain period of time
before they can keep the matching funds. If this applies to you, consider the effect of this policy when
deciding whether to leave your current employer.
Bump up your contributions. Saving at least 10% to 15% of your salary for retirement (including any

Everyone wants to age in place. People want to stay in their own home, with perhaps some help coming in occasionally to mow the lawn, clean, do laundry, perhaps some help with shopping. cooking, bathing, dressing – when help is needed with those things.
Of course, we will be healthy, just slowing down a little. Aging in place allows us to keep the pets, stay in our home, be near our neighbors and church, and for many people is the desired way we live our golden years. Nobody wants to go to a nursing home.
Aging in place is very doable for many people. As long as the home is designed with a laundry on the first floor, the doorways are wide enough for a walker or wheelchair, we are able to get into and out of the building without barriers such as stairs or steps, we should be fine. Some changes like properly positioned grab bars in the bathroom for safety can also help.
But what if we need more assistance than the above mentioned adaptive devices? What if we need someone to shop for us, prepare meals, clean the house, do laundry, or even help us with medication management, bathing, and dressing? These are activities called Long Term Care (LTC).
Home care agencies can come into come into our home on a regular basis to help with those things. They can even drive us to the bank and other errands we might feel a bit overwhelmed by. However, these services do charge an average of $90 for a single visit, which typically...
