Plenty to catch up on over the weekend, so let’s dive right into Monday’s Top Links. Let’s make it a great week!

- Currently, Americans over the age of 50 are eligible to use catch-up contributions to send extra money into their retirements accounts. There have been talks about potentially expanding that provision, and this article outlines those changes.
- Sometimes people can impact your life in a few different ways. Whether it’s giving advice or leading by example, Richard writes about how a father can have an impact financially on children.
