Edelman Financial Engines' Everyday Wealth with Jean Chatzky

You’re retired (or almost retired) … now what?

Season 1 Episode 40

When you’re approaching retirement, you have to make many decisions that will affect your finances – either positively or negatively. In this episode of Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, Jean and wealth planner Isabel Barrow discuss some of the most important decisions that could cost you if you don’t plan for them, including what to do with your mortgage, and what to consider before traveling . Later, the end of the year is coming and so are opportunities to harvest some of your losses to help save you money on taxes. Jean and Isabel talk about what tax-loss harvesting is and how it may help you.
