Here's a message from our sponsor:

The financial world is more complex than ever, and people are struggling to make sense of it all. If you’re like most people moving into the phase of life where protecting—as well as growing—assets is paramount, you’re faced with a number of financial puzzles.  Maybe you’re struggling to get your kids through college without drawing down your life’s savings. Perhaps you’re contemplating downsizing to a smaller home, but aren’t sure of the financial implications. Possibly, medical expenses have become a bigger drain than you expected and you need help assessing options. 

Whatever your specific financial concern, one thing is certain—your range of choices is vast. Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz and the Schwab team have been helping clients tackle their toughest money issues for decades with deeply researched advice delivered in a clear and straightforward manner.  Through Carrie’s popular “Ask Carrie” columns, her leadership of the Charles Schwab Foundation, and her work across party lines through two White House administrations with the President’s Advisory Council on Financial Capability, she has become one of America’s most trusted sources for financial advice.
 â€¨In her latest book, The Charles Schwab Guide to Finances After Fifty, Carrie addresses the questions that keep you up at night and provides answers to many questions you haven’t considered but should. Find out more about the book at
