~ If you have an old pension, or a current one and you have concerns about the guarantees for your retirement income – how safe is your pension now and in the future – who is the watch guard?  What is the status of the PBGC (Pension Guarantee Association)

~ If you don’t have a pension, but you have a 401k – what kind of changes are forthcoming from Washington?  What’s really in those Target Date Funds?  Are they safe for pre-retirees or too aggressive – a deeper look at what these funds represent

~ New IRS regulations regarding future 401k rollovers – will you have to leave your money in your 401k forever?

~ Roth 401k loopholes that came out of the Affordable Care Act

~ What is Washington looking at now?  Capping IRA savings, even more limits on itemizing on tax returns, new “millionaires” tax, eliminating RMDs?  Adding restrictions on Roth IRAs?
