Attention fellow Gen X’ers: are you taking full advantage of your 401(k)s and IRAs? Did you know that contribution limits change once you hit the age of 50? In today’s episode, we’re shining the spotlight on retirement planning specifically for Generation X – those born between 1965 and 1980. We’ll be sharing crucial tips on making sure you’re not leaving any money on the table by fully utilizing contribution limits and understanding how employer-matching contributions work.

But that’s not all… We’ll guide you through conducting an inventory of your current investments and assessing your risk profile, while also discussing the importance of running simulations to make sure you’re on track to achieve your retirement goals. Plus, we’ll touch on estate planning and setting up a trust fund for your family’s future. They say Generation X is the forgotten generation. Hogwash. We have the spotlight today, so tune in and take control of your financial future.
