On August 17th and August 30th, you can get free financial advice from fee-only planners, courtesy of Kiplinger’s. It’ll be the sixth time Kiplinger’s has done this and they’re working with the National Association of Personal Finance Advisors (NAPFA) from 9am to 6pm, fielding calls on 888-919-2345 and emails at email@example.com.
Here are more details:
Normally, these fee-only planners, who are well versed in investments, taxes, insurance, estate planning and saving for college and retirement, charge clients $100 to $250 an hour. But on Jump-Start Days, you don’t pay a cent — not even for the phone call. Just dial 888-919-2345 and a NAPFA adviser will respond to your question. Or, if you prefer, you can e-mail your question in advance starting August 1 to firstname.lastname@example.org and a NAPFA adviser will reply on one of the Jump-Start dates.
To make the most of your financial checkup, gather together any relevant records, such as mutual fund statements or your 401(k) menu of investment choices. If your questions are too complex to be answered on the spot, you may be directed to NAPFA’s Web site, where you can look for a planner in your area.
