re: Tax Gurus--START Plan (529) Transfer - tigerrocket

re: Estate Planning, Pre-nup, Trust, etc. - tigerrocket
Take the advice of the attorney before any of our advice, but here are my two cents: 1. Pre-nup and marriage contract can keep the assets that you come into the marriage with separate. The marriage contract can address the growth of these assets while married. You want to protect what you have...

Flood Insurance Experts - tigerrocket
I purchased a raised camp/house and assumed the current flood policy. The insurance company is using the slab underneath as the lowest level for flood insurance purposes.

re: Anyone had to deal with a flood adjuster? - tigerrocket
You may want to get a contractor to give you an estimate in writing. After Katrina, my contractor's estimate was twice what the flood adjuster came up with. I had my flood adjuster and contractor in the house at the same time for the second meeting. Don't forget fridge and pantry contents. T...

re: Re-Fi House Question - Rate - tigerrocket
Personally, I would do the 15 year note with a HELOC in case of emergency. Your note shouldn't be much different than it is now at 5.5%. Some people will suggest a 30 year mortgage, because it provides flexibility in case of emergency, but more times than not, it provides flexibility to buy a new c...

re: Question about how a 1099 affects my taxes - tigerrocket

re: Switching jobs and 401k question - tigerrocket
Because it's a relatively small amount, I would roll it over to the 401k. I wouldn't want to bother with another account, unless you were planning on making contributions to the new IRA. Those contributions might not be deductible depending on your income anyway. ...

re: CFP - tigerrocket
I think it is more helpful for a young advisor's confidence in the early part of their career, and the information learned is valuable, but I have only had about 6 prospects/clients ask if I was a CFP in the last 20 years. Most of my clients don't even know what it is. I think that there are too...
