Feel like it’s impossible to get a straight answer about mutual funds? Our Mutual Funds Report digs deep to explain the good, the bad, and the frustratingly-murky when it comes to these investment vehicles. Nearly one-half of all U.S. households invest in mutual funds… are you one of them? If so, taking an unbiased look at the mutual fund as a product and at the industry as a whole is probably long overdue.

The Effect of Interest Rates on Retirement Income
With the potential for a rising interest rate environment, the return on your fixed income investments may not be what you had hoped — possibly changing your perception of your future standard of living. And with retirement getting closer and closer, you may not have time to make up any losses to the income you were counting on using to do all that you had planned.
Tax Strategies for Retirement
Retirees can be affected by a variety of taxes — state income taxes, estate taxes and Social Security taxes, to name a few. But the most common tax — the one that all retirees will deal with — is the federal income tax. For this reason, we’ll focus primarily on the federal income tax and its effect on individuals planning for retirement, but be aware that all potential taxes need to be understood and planned for by those who hope to have a financially comfortable retirement.
The Social Security Decisions Report
Worried by the constant headlines suggesting your Social Security benefits could be in jeopardy? Today’s long, active retirements may mean your nest egg isn’t enough.
