On this week’s Hanson McClain’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat talk about the problem with timber as an investment and the importance of diversification.
Scott and Pat take a call from a man who wants to know if he should take his pension as a lump sum or as a monthly annuity. A caller has a mortgage of $500,000 and wants to know if she should use her 403(b) to pay it down. A 50-year-old police officer would like to retire and wants to know if he should use his retirement savings to pay off his mortgage. A caller lost his wife and needs advice on what to do with the proceeds from a life insurance policy.
