You asked for feedback:

It's pretty hard to take someone seriously when they suggest annuities without specifying which type. Most annuities are a terrible idea for most people.

Much of the rest of your post could states the obvious and could be condensed to a far shorter post.

I suggest you come up with a plan for the years between 55 and tapping your tax deferred assets. In my opinion the online tools and many financial advisors do a spectacularly crappy job of dealing with early retirement. To make it happen you need to hunker down and learn to do it yourself. Be carefu...

You're not married are you LMoot? I like my job. I could quit tomorrow if I wanted to. I actually planned to stop working about now and have reached the point financially where I can. But I took on a new challenge a couple of years ago and want to see that through. After that, whether I continue to ...

Does anyone else concur with this? Everyone seems to say (to me/general research) that paying off a low-interest mortgage early is not the best use of my money since the minimum potential annual return on investing is at least 6%, while my mortgage is costing me 4% (thus I'm at least 2% better off ...

Since you are already a QB user I would recommend Quicken... I agree, and I love Quicken. But Intuit has put Quicken up for sale and so far there seem to be no buyers stepping forward. That suggests to me that they might just stop supporting the product soon. Just don't be surprised if it's no long...

My partner has a mortgage that she took out when she was in a high-income job three years ago. But she became disabled and can no longer work - yet she still has to pay the mortgage. Unfortunately house prices have dropped and selling it would put her in negative equity. Is there anywhere she could...

I was in escrow for a condo that my landlord was going to sell me but it fell through. I found a cute house 2 miles from the beach that could serve my needs but it has a lot of people looking at it and competition is super stiff. I would have to bid $515k and put $15k of renovations to make it half...

What exactly is Wealthfront? It seems to be an investment company. It would be helpful to know what the underlying investments are. If, as I suspect, it is a roboadvisor, that may be fine but you should know what you are invested in. I would personally not be happy with money in Lending Club. There ...

I see the seeds of a revolution there... Think Baltimore which in my opinion was not about the police - the root causes were poverty, poor education and a culture bent on self destruction. $3 an hour won't solve those. Wealth disparity, while we can argue about the causes, justice, and so forth, ha...

A lot depends on how good your sister's credit is. And don't discount what the dealer may have to offer. For example, Honda is offering 0.9% APR for 24-36 months to qualified buyers on certain models. In some cases, they'll even give a discount of $500 off the car if you take a loan with them. But ...

Money out of your 401K will be considered earned income if it is tax deferred (e.g. traditional). Money taken as rent is taxed as earned income. No and no. 401(k) withdrawals are not earned income and are not subject to social security taxes. Rent is passive income and is not earned income and is n...

For example in TV series House M.D. (original title) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0412142/?ref_=nv_sr_3 there sometimes are very rich patients and sometimes in worst case sometimes money does not help. You realize that is fiction, right? Perhaps we should worry about these risks as well: 1. Being at...

Would it be 5 k of rental income per month, which is 60k per year, would be taxed at 30%, which would be 20K goes to IRS...Is that...

I tend to like the idea of college being free, paid by taxpayers. But I admit, if that happened, it would be highly competitive and it is doubtful that most people could get in. We'd also likely have to ration it by major. How many art history majors do we need anyway? I'm not knocking that as an ac...
