Re: Anyone planning on never retiring?

My father was one of those people who was dead-set against retirement. He worked until ill health forced him into retirement at age 84. Dad lived seven more years and was miserable.

Re: 2017 RMD Timing

Most financial reasons favor delaying RMDs to later in the year since markets usually go up and you would earn more on the RMD amount prior to withdrawal. ..........

Re: What to wear for job interview - skip the tie?

ALWAYS dress to impress! So does that mean a $5000 Kiton wool cashmere sport coat with no tie or a $300 suit on special at Joseph Banks with a tie? A cheap suit with a tie is still a cheap suit.
