May 11, 2024 - Money Matters Podcast

A crackdown on salespeople posing as advisors, a widow who needs an income strategy, plus questions about a reverse mortgage, an RMD, and Social Security.

On this week’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat weigh the pros and cons of the Labor Department’s looming crackdown on so-called advisors who sell financial products. A Utah man seeks guidance on how to help his widowed mother navigate her financial life. A California caller wants to know whether it makes sense to take out a reverse mortgage. A retiree with a surplus of money asks for help with an RMD strategy. Finally, a 63-year old wonders whether he should take Social Security early.
