529 plans are touted as a way to save for your children’s education. But saving money in a 529 plan is a lot like sending your money to jail. Once your money is in a 529 plan you can’t use it for anything other than education. If you need to use that money for other purposes, you’ll pay a hefty penalty!

But there is a way to get money out of a 529 plan without paying a penalty. On this episode of Wealth Talks, Tom and John will explain how to do this.

If you’re interested in investment opportunities, take the time now to begin preparing and learning everything you can about the process.

For example, if you think Real Estate investing and rental properties sound interesting, then learn about the state laws, the systems and templates that you would need to have in place for this type of investment/business venture. There are some great resources online for learning about state specific laws and getting actual templates that can help you in this type of venture. Checkout this example of a Month-to-Month Rental Agreement from iPropertyManagment.

Learn about the different expenses associated with the investments you think you may want to make. Calculators such as this Investment Property Calculator on AARP can help with this process and in evaluating real opportunities when they do come along.

Anyone can lose money investing, but starry-eyed novice investors tend to lose much more than people who have enough knowledge to avoid major mistakes. Get knowledge on your side.

And regardless of the investment opportunities you want to pursue, be sure you are building a strong foundation of guarantees and liquidity before investing, because investments are always going to carry risk. Life Benefits can help you build your foundation of financial guarantees through Life Insurance. Call us for assistance at 702-660-7000.

Risk Tolerance is a phrase that gets thrown around a lot in the typical financial world. Your risk tolerance is defined as the degree of variability in investment returns that you are willing to withstand.

But this really doesn’t specify the amount of money you are willing to risk in order to possibly make a certain amount of money. In other words, how much money are you going to gamble with?

Of course, just because you gamble with more and more money, that doesn’t mean you will make more, or even any, money in return.

Sadly, it seems that many “risk tolerance” measures are just a new-fangled way of throwing your money away. Here’s what you want to know instead: What is your Loss Aversion? Listen now to find out.

A L Williams popularized the concept of “Buy Term and Invest the Difference” in the 1970’s. When market returns are looking good this concept seems to make a come-back even though it’s flawed with big assumptions.

They say you won’t need a death benefit when term insurance gets expensive. They say your investments will do better than whole life insurance. Maybe, and maybe not.

You want guarantees? Then you want to build a strong financial foundation with guarantees before you invest. Investing isn’t bad, but don’t throw away guarantees for speculative possibilities.

What about business expansion or business ideas? What about stocks, bonds and mutual funds? What about universal life insurance tied to market performance?
