A Cincinnati caller making $150,000 a year consulting asks if he should expect means testing on his Social Security benefit. A California man with $875,000 in retirement savings asks if a Roth conversion is a smart move for his situation. Scott and Pat speak with a soldier in Hawaii looking for ways to save outside of his TSP. Finally, a California woman asks if she should sell her rental worth $400,000.
