It’s getting towards the end of the year. If you have a required minimum distribution to take from a retirement account, do you know how much you need to withdraw? If not, watch this video!
Here’s what I’ve been reading this morning:
- Ben digs into the latest report from the Federal Reserve discussing changes to American family finances over the last 3 years. Despite what sentiment might make you think, the average American is in a pretty good spot!
- Inflation has been lingering longer than some people thought it would. This article discusses giving inflation-protected securities like TIPS another shot, even though they didn’t perform how most expected they would last year.
- This article discusses a few changes coming to Social Security next year. The cost of living adjustment will be lower than in 2023, and some tax limits are being raised as well.
- Utilizing an interesting Twitter account, Ben writes about why betting against America is a bad bet. Over the years, thinking that American on the decline hasn’t paid off for those who take that side of the bet.
