You work hard for your money, so you shouldn't hand it over to just any financial professional. Unfortunately, choosing the right financial professional can be a confusing and difficult decision. What are a prospective financial professional's credentials? What standard of care does the professional follow? How does he or she charge for services? How will your money be invested? These are all important questions, but often times it's not easy translating the answer.
This month, in an effort to provide guidance on working with financial professionals, the deferred compensation plan launched special editions of both its DC Update and Simply Put newsletter. Both are chocked full of indispensable information for retirement savers of all ages.
