Retirement Amid Crisis: The Money Answers Show

Why is planning for retirement so critical? What does a realistic retirement plan look like? What’s the difference between those who have a plan and those who don’t when something like the coronavirus epidemic happens? Is there a right place to have your money invested in times of financial uncertainty? How should people approaching retirement or recently retired respond to big decreases in retirement savings? Jordan Goodman, host of The Money Answers Show, talks with Joseph DiSalvo and Marie Madarasz about financial planning and retirement. Madarasz and DiSalvo, authors of ‘Income For Life’, talk with Goodman about strategies for converting savings into income, about mitigating risk, how to seek professional help, and about the most important consideration anyone approaching retirement or newly retired should focus on.

I know that there were quite a few physicians you were able to spend time with throughout the weekend. Many of them conveyed their appreciation for all of the help and advice you extended them. We are so appreciative and cannot thank you enough for such a great job!"

  • "Where do I begin? You were excellent at the OSC Power Meeting XXIV recently held in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The speaker evaluations proved that you were a huge hit with our members. QSC members are much better off, both personally and professionally, for having attended your program. I might add that we have never had as many requests for the recording of a presentation as we have with yours. Don’t ever hesitate to have any prospective clients contact me as a reference. Thank you again for such a positive experience."

  • "There is always an exception to every rule and your recent seminar to our JWT employees provided that. Generally, I believe you get what you pay for and since we didn’t pay you anything for your recent talk one might not expect the reaction we got. Instead, I have been besieged with compliments about arranging for you to speak. Our employees felt more informed and financially empowered as a result of your discussion with them. I enjoyed meeting you and will be pleased to know the face behind the column that I read in every issue of Money Magazine."
