With so many priorities competing for our attention, it’s easy to overlook opportunities that come up this time of the year that can help with your financial plan. This week on Edelman Financial Engines’ Everyday Wealth™, wealth planner Jason Cowans joins Jean and Soledad to review a few important financial steps you can consider taking before ringing in the new year. Also in this episode, when a loved one passes away, financial decisions can often make the grieving process even more challenging. The hosts discuss the emotional and financial aspects of losing someone you love, and steps you can take to help make the process a little easier.
This show is pre-recorded, and any callers are prescreened.
Ms. Chatzky and Ms. O’Brien receive cash compensation for acting as hosts of the Everyday Wealth radio show and podcast and for related activities and therefore have an incentive to endorse Edelman Financial Engines (EFE) and its planners. That compensation is a fixed sum paid on an annual basis; and reimbursement for certain expenses. The amount paid each year does not vary, is not based on show content or any results-dependent factors (e.g., popularity of the show).
