    I am an employee at a small business in Maryland. We have a 401K plan with a 3% company match. However, we only have about 15-18 investment options through American funds and all the expense ratios are 1.35-1.90. How can I find lower expense ratio options?
    Adam-A lot of the fees you are paying come from the 12b-1 fee which go to the broker of record on your plan as a commission. And yes, you are paying way too much in fees for what you are receiving. Take a look at yahoo.finance.com, and type in the ticker symbol RGABX. This is The Growth Fund of Am...  (more)

    My Dad would like to give "gift" my Husband and I $25K to help pay for medical expenses. Since he has already paid for the taxes on his end for the funds we wanted to see what the implications would be for my Husband and I when we file our taxes for 2013?

    Larry-Short answer: Yes. It all has to with CONTROL. In bond mutual funds and EFT's you are investing with fund managers that you cannot control. Also, you have no control of the public investors cash inflow and outflows within the funds (when the public puts money in or takes it out). You have no ...  (more)

    What's the best distribution between college savings and retirement savings?
    Mya-In my opinion you should not separate the two. Compartmentalizing your money (Retirement, education, etc.) can have negative effects on your wealth building abilities. The 529 plan is one of the worst wealth destruction investment vehicles out there. It does not allow your money to compound ove...  (more)

    How do I go about contacting our 401 K company to try to improve its rating?
    Yes. If you own the company, you pick your 401(k) provider. If you are unhappy, and would like a 401(k) review I work in Tampa and would be happy to give you my opinion. https://www.brightscope.com/financial-planning/advisor/755859/Aj-Blackstone/...  (more)

    Is an indexed life insurance policy a viable option for a high income earner who is a wage earner?
    Daniel-The fees you deem high now will only get worse. In any Universal Life product insurance costs are not fixed, and they will increase each year. So if you are lucky enough to see an old age, you will never see the money you put into the product because it will all be eaten away with insurance ...  (more)
