Re: Google Voice - scheduled auto fwd to VM

i have an iPhone and use google voice as my work number. i work in IT so my gvoice app is always running. :oops:

i created a contact for my gvoice number so i can tell at glance if a call is work related or not. OP, at this point, you could send the call directly to VM just like any other call.

Re: TIAA Trad Still A Good Investment?

Agreed.

So while I lost the 3% guarantee, I gained access to Vanguard Total Stock, Vanguard Total Interna...

Re: TIAA Trad Still A Good Investment?

I am confused about retirement choice product of TIAA - if the guarentee is 1% and it is currently paying 3% for new money deposited this year - does that mean that next year it continues at 3% or can it get reset down to as low as 1% Thanks Log into your TIAA account and click on the TRAD interest...

Re: Target Date Fund vs. 3 Fund Portfolio

i started my Roth IRA with vanguard using a target date fund (TDF) because it was easy to setup with no maintenance. i always contributed the max amount (at the beginning of the year or over the entire year) and let time work for me. eventually, my TDF had grown enough where i could convert it to th...
