"Hi charles welcome to the ramsey show. Hi dave thanks so much for taking my call. Sure what's up So i've on debt-free I have about three million dollars. And i'm curious if that's enough to comfortably retire but should be a lot of money. Well done thank you. How old are you gate. Okay well we have to define a comfortably and we have to define What you're going to do with this money because obviously you're not stupid or you wouldn't have ended up with three million dollars but if you suddenly grew stupid you could get rid of the three-million real quickly and not retire right correct. So you know if you're but if you had it reasonably invested and lived on that income obviously you could retire so if it were me i would put that in good growth stock mutual funds making eleven or twelve percent and lived off of about ten or less which means i would have somewhere around two hundred fifty three thousand dollars a year to live on. I think i struggle through and the money would never and the month the principal would never deplete substantially during that time. And i can do that in perpetuation if you can do that. Then you're going to be just fine if you wanna put it in. Cd's and make two percent while you're gonna live on very little while you're while you're three million dollars sits there and deteriorates and it's a purchasing power right. I put i put about two million into the market. And then i kept like a million off to the side just in case everything goes to heck back you know i can either you know and to it or you know. Leave that towards You know other investments in real estate because made my money was real estate. I'd probably put a real estate then. Okay instead of sidelining a million dollars because let's just say a million dollars ten percent that's one hundred thousand dollars a year. Losing sidelining it. Right so i wouldn't want to sideline one hundred grand. I'll sideline some of it. But i feel like you know if one of the things goes really badly i think the other one is probably going to be okay and generally speaking i would say real estate is a less risky investment overall. But your real estate guy. Would you agree with that charles. Yeah yeah i absolutely would. But it's also you know it takes a lot of your time and a lot of graph. Yes agar hassle. Yeah yes yes. There's there's there's a lot that goes into it you know i don't you know i've done slips i've done. You told an apartment building. That's where my main thanks i'm in wow But if you were managing yourself it was a super high but if you if you outsource the management are hard. Somebody manage it for you under your direction. Either one. you'd be fine so it all comes down to the answer. The your questions can i on three million dollars. Yes if you invest it and live off of the what the investment creates without touching the three megan. You're ready okay okay. So what do you need your level You know. I mean we've been living the whole time on like fifty sixty. Okay You know the entire time while building building this one hundred hundred thousand dollars is what is that. Is that three percent on three million. Yeah yeah so surely the godson you can do that. Yeah as long as everything doesn't come crashing down. I'm not you know. I have been in the market a long time. If everything comes crashing down to the point that you're only making three percent on your investments. We got bigger problems. The three million dollars solve true true. Well i've got two kids. Oh to that. I gotta put through college and pay for weddings and all that kind of thing. So that's that's kind of my you know been trepidation of unless you're dropping a million dollars on that stuff. That doesn't even matter. Okay i mean what are you going to spend on all that you know what i mean. You should be able to again you. Should you should make this money. Create eight or ten percent and you got three hundred thousand dollars a year income to do something with if you live out of one hundred and spend the rest of it on your kids. I mean you're still going to be okay. Think you just need to plan for. It feels like i hear a lot of unknowns in your voice and there's a couple unknowns like whatever you decide to spend on these weddings or college just put a number to it. Put it on paper talk to your kids about whatever that plan looks like and then all the other unknowns like if the market crashes and all that that's just fear that's just i mean we could sit here and run one if what if scenarios all day but we're to go based on facts and the fact is you've got three million which is enough to live on and pay for weddings and colleges and you just stand on that you stand on the truth of those numbers make a plan for the numbers and then let that gives you the confidence that that you need versus running these doomsday scenario. Because you're in a great position so where my. I gotta stay with us for a second because this should okay. How old are you you you told me that. Okay so you did. Real estate deals for how.

Hundred forty six thousand. Is that pretty much everything. Credit cards student loans Vehicles medical bills cell phones mattress. We're normal of it all just great americans. I love it way to go guys. So how long have you guys been married nine months nine months ago so you started working on this before marriage during during engagement period. I guess so. Tell a story how this go down well we We had some good encouragement My my mother-in-law was at the tail end for debt free journey following the baby steps and so we decided to sit down and put this on paper and actually look at everything and our goal was to try to finish this Before being married knowing that when we become married. We're gonna wanna know all these things and obviously be on the same page so Took a little longer than we wanted. but you know we still got to the end of the end of the road there. Yeah twenty six. Months is not bad not bad at all so who had the most of the debt it was it was pretty even To be honest an okay. Pretty even split when we sat down. We just kinda you know we knew going into the region real relationship. People tied debt And we just kind of down and pull out there. There is no judgment. It was kind of like this is what i have. This is what you have and we wanted to be a upfront about that before. We even got married. You know well good for you. That's impressive that you guys were so receptive to. It has a lot of people when someone a loving family member for example come well. Your mother-in-law people dig their heels in so what was that. What was that like. Was it the total money makeover book. Did you listen to the podcast. How did you guys get. Get in line with the plan. His baby steps and all that yes. I think I'm like justice and my mom was at the tail end of a baby step two and we started and i think we kinda just reliving like normal people and then we saw the success that we had and we realized there is no more to life than just paying other. We kind of joke because We we were putting forty to fifty percent of our take home pay towards stat. Every month we can go on like a week long vacation every month. Because you know the money that we're paying towards other people Just more and we didn't want to work forever you know like let's just you know tackle this now And we're still young and have a better feature good for you. So how old are you I am twenty eight thirty two. Why goco awesome very cool. So i mean you. Tackle one of life's biggest subjects wall. You're engaged going into your marriage and finish it up in the first year of your marriage That that's a. That's a big deal for from a relationship standpoint. It sets you on a really solid foundation to do anything you want to do now from a math standpoint. You're free to be able to do anything you wanna do. That's very very impressive. And the same page with your values like the fact that you you both were all in from the beginning. that's huge. So many couples try to get on the same page in order to work the plan worth once i can get my spouse onboard and you guys are both just like yeah. Let's do it. So what a what a great foundation start. Your marriage line really turned our tables when we were We said we sat down and put everything on and then were planning the wedding and unfortunately cova turned our our dream. Wedding into a non dream wedding so we We had a pivot and a lot of that but because of the road. We're on it made those decisions easier on having to pull back on what we wanted to do for our wedding. Put some other things in place. It was not as much worry risk anymore because we were really close to the end. So good for you. That's cool very good guys all right. Now what's the big deal when people say how do you pay off one hundred and forty six thousand dollars in twenty six months making one hundred and forty. What do you tell them. I think it's really the budget for myself Putting it on paper seeing it actually senior come in and come out As you usually allude to its you're putting out there to show What you're able to do and give yourself permission so Getting on paper and visibility. I think would be my my big thing. Justice kind of nerdy spreadsheet guy data. Guy he he made the budget. Budget meetings I think justin hit the nail on the head It was kind of crazy for us to actually sit down and look at the budget and realize we're spending x. Amount of money going out to eat and x. amount of money on you know random amazon purchases we don't need and it's like wow now why are we spending money on things that don't really matter when we could be putting the sadder dead and Yeah i think the big is just following the budget I know you that all the time but it. I personally think that the following the budget you know making sure you're staying on track with all that stuff. What's so interesting. You say that because it's a weekend say it all day but hearing from people that have actually followed the budget and gotten debt. Free is is so powerful and you know on youtube. They were just showing. Y'all tracker system. It's so fascinating because research shows that nothing is more motivating than seeing progress. And so when you guys begin to track it with your a lot of people have visual charts. And you've got your budget and that type of thing you see that progress. It motivates you to want to make more progress and that's what helps you stick with it. It's the reason one of the reasons we tell people to pay off your debts. Smallest to largest by balance is to feel those in progress. And you guys did that well done. Y'all are awesome those kind of the nicely when we started as we had several credit cards. Fifteen hundred two thousand are mattress was twelve hundred phones. We paid all that stuff off very quickly and at least for me gave me a lot of motivation. Now let me got to the student loans. Which is you know twenty thousand or thirty thousand and you know when you get to those big numbers. It's almost like we're never going to get done. And then you did it so all the sudden there you are right amazing very very cool so obviously was cheering you on outside of the two of you. Who were your cheerleaders. i kind of Everybody kind of was secretly cheering assigned on. But i don't know if it was. I was sincere. But i think they kinda thought we were goofballs doing until the end and then now you know we're getting we're getting friends and family and random people that we've never even met asking us for advice like how do you do it. That's right. I posted on facebook and i had several people message me like. Wow you know it's awesome. And what kind of vice you have. And i want to also get free and For me was it was kind of cool to see that just because when we first started you know we always said close family. That were cheering us on. But it was friends and acquaintances and that kind of stuff that kinda just you thought it was cool but you know. We tried that several times and it didn't work and it's good for you but not exactly good crap. Yeah whatever so. I always have an opinion. But it's passive aggressive answer. Yeah wow white. Go guys excellent job. How's it feel now that you're free doesn't feel real yet. I mean..

"The guilt free guide to life and balance all right. Let's try. what point say. What did you say. Laura said down. No phones right now phones dead. Oh great okay. That's cool all right. Let's let's jack about this then because it's a good subject and on the lies because you're right. There's a lot of guilt and shame on this topic. Here's what i've found. We don't know a balance. Is we just know. We don't have it and so we have this feeling that haunts us that were always failing no matter what we were doing the wrong thing. And and that's why. I love this subtitle. The guilt free guide to life balance because similar to what we were saying earlier. Dave in the conversation about money. There's always the issue below the issue and if we don't address the deeper issues that are at play with how we manage our time then the symptoms are gonna keep creeping up again and again in our calendar and so a really dig into what's going on that keeps us from feeling like we are doing the right things at the right time and showing in showing people what that looks like in a practical way. I was asked actually hosting the ramsey show with ken last week or two weeks ago and we were talking about this and i think it's one of those things where there's a seasonality life so whether someone is starting a new job paying off their debt and baby step number two. They have a new baby. You know whatever that looks like the season you're in will affect how you spend your time. What's right for you right now. And even what your version of balance looks like. I don't think enough people talk about that. They don't talk enough about the season and how that affects what you spend your time on occurs to me. There's you get tired exhausted. Physically you can get exhausted emotionally. You can even get an exhausted intellectually. Your brain just starts to hurt and i'm in almost every one of those types of exhaustion where the fatigue is smothering. It's not because you were busy. Yeah it's because you're living in chaos. Yeah yeah and you feel felt like that you were. There's this internal pulling at you the whole time. You're busy that you're doing the wrong thing at the wrong time and that exhaust shoe more thoroughly than just being tired from working. Yeah and it can feel when you're in one of the seasons where you are tired or exhausted or stress it can feel like it's gonna last forever and it doesn't and so even remembering this is the season a season of getting out of debt a season of little kids a season of whatever it won't last forever it gives you a new level of strength And even more of an objective perspective to be able to get through that season. Because you know it's not gonna last forever. This is not a forever thing. Maybe you're in a tough time but this is not forever and so i wanna help. People identify their season there in figure out what life balance looks like in that season for them and then show them how they can get through it in practical ways you know i. It is not about doing necessarily doing less of something. It's about doing the right thing at the right time on purpose. Yeah you can feel balanced and still be busy. And i'm busy. I'm i'm super busy. But i'm doing the right things. And so even though yes of course into the days. I'm tired but i'm energized from doing the right things. It's not that kind of tired of man. I feel all this guilt doing the wrong things. It's once you begin to align your time with what's most important to you. What you actually care about those things are life giving to you and it gives you energy To to get through it makes you feel more balanced also makes you have more fun because you're doing the right things. The book is take back your time. The guilt free guide the life balance at ramsey solutions dot com in the store. Danielle is in santa cruz. California hi danielle how are you. Hi dave hi chrissy. how are you guys. Hey great how can we help her. okay so let's see We have been debt free since january. Thank you for that mojo. I just have a quick question about retirement. Stuff we have a fully funded emergency fund. my husband cashed out his retirement and a couple of years ago. This is before you And so like you know now. It's a huge mistake and so I have some retirement these from a job that i had before we got married and so He's like seven or eight years older than i am. And so i'm wondering if We should front-load his ira's 401k's all of that stuff. I mean kind of. Let him catch up to me because he's gonna reach fifty nine and a half Probably seven years before. I will borrow by front-load you mean out of your baby step. Four fifteen percent. yes sir. Okay so out. If you're putting fifteen percent into retirement you're saying put more of it in his name because he's gonna hit fifty nine and he can access it. Yes and i already have about sixteen thousand in my retirement so he has about a thousand. How old are you guys I'm twenty six. he's thirty two. It doesn't matter okay. You have thirty freaking years. You're going to be okay. Yeah doesn't just put fifteen percent in the right place. Don't worry about this lord. I thought you were like fifty. He was sixty two or something. Okay now. I didn't think you were that old. I just couldn't figure out the question lint itself to that so you are. You are the master planner girl. I mean you plan way out. that's awesome. That's gonna vote for you but your point is. I think you're overthinking little at this stage so i think you'll be just fine to do the right thing. Get the best you know. Get the best match. Whoever has that that's number one and number to get as much roth as you can get And then who has the best selection of mutual funds and both of you have a roth with mutual funds up to fifteen percent of your income in your baby step four. I assume your baby step for you know what that means. Yes yep okay yeah. That's and that's where this question stemmed from but yeah you're you got enough time. You're gonna be okay. Yeah i'm with you. Whenever she was asking. I was thinking like this is any minute like he might retire like in a few years. So we're trying to speed this up but yeah you got you got plenty of time. You're you're getting started way earlier than most danielle so well done. Yeah absolutely so. If let's say let's turn the question what i thought. It was cam someone. That's older somebody's let's say she's Forty and he's fifty three. that's where i kind of thought we were okay. So he's got like five years six years before he can access this and if we put a bunch in his name even if they were a little less performing mutual fund or maybe. Maybe it wasn't a roth and we would rather have a roth that kind of thing. At least we got some in his name because it's going to be several years before she catches up but if she had three hundred thousand dollars in her account and he had almost none in his account And there was that kind of and you're that close to this. Yeah i might then say. Let's let's do that but she's got enough time. it's all gone workout. Yeah yeah yeah. Melanie is with us in canada. Hi melanie welcome to the ramsey show. Hi there david christie. How are you. Hey great what's going on I have a question. i'm on baby. Step two right now. Seventy seven thousand. I'm working away at it My side got a second job. I'm trying to throw as much money as my gut as a can but my eldest son. He's eighteen. He's destined for university but He's doing one more extra year of high school. That buys me a little bit of time. He's unable to work. He's sick I have enough money to fund completely his first year university. But my plan always before you was Just to feed and house been kinda deal. They would have to pay for their tuition well now. Obviously that can't happen. So i don't know if i should eat throwing money at my house. So sick he can't work but he can go to university. Oh no no. We're we're hoping we're hoping there is a halt.

"But ask her why she doesn't want to do it. I am a direct person. Sometimes if i sense resistance it seems like you don't want to do is to tell me why she's already told him she's too busy. I know that's not true. No but keep. That's what i mean. Keep pressing no like sunday night. We're not busy or whatever time. Hey is it because you feel like. I'm taking money ways it because you feel like you don't say is it because you whatever just ask. Some open ended questions. And then maybe if you peel away the layers there. The first answering might get a. She's busy but then once you keep pressing in in in a loving way it might be like. Hey i'm really scared of of what we're gonna look like. I'm scared i'm not to have money for then. You start to be able to solve things at the root issue which is actually where they need to be solved. It's not this surface level busy conversation. You actually get to. What's really going on so don't be afraid to ask some of those direct questions but ask him in love and then you might find the real answer so you can start to work at it at that at that level. No from thirty years doing this. My suspicion is is that you're you feels like you're taking away some of her power because this is an area that she you know you're like asking to move into her territory. This has been delegated to her. And now you're actually wanting to know what's going on and she doesn't like you having a voice in it And because she's used to running it and leave me alone. And i haven't done a bad job and there's no reason well. There's a reason we need to do this together. And make a decision together and It can be some of the biggest fight you have. If you don't get through that it's a big deal out very very very important so folks when you learn to do a plan together spending plan together for rachel calls 'cause she likes to spend spending plan. That's all a budget is. You're telling your money what to do instead of wondering where it went as a couple when you're married and you decide together where you're doing that you are officially deciding what's important to you as a couple both of you have a and we join our values into one and.

"Welcome to the ramsey show. Hey dave how you doing great man. What's up much. So i've got a good problem so to speak My wife and i we've been really good with money ever since we've been married. Never really had that of in our house I had to be an opportunity. Make some good money to pass years of work but recent promotion which kinda came to pay cut overtime. And so i'm trying to get our family locked down on budgeting and i've had some resistance past years my wife and it's not because she's not great with money but she's fulltime teacher. She's mom four. Kids runs our house and so the problem is if she pays for a lot of our miscellaneous expenses that are not like mortgage utilities things of that nature and so i need her input and her information helped make our budget work but usually every time i need to get it. She's just so busy becomes a little bit of a like a tense. You know conflict between us and it just stops so. I don't know if you had any advice on how to kind of get your wife onboard when she's busy and she's great with money but it's hard to make a budget when you can't get her half of what she's spending and try to figure that whole thing out. She's not busy. Want you telling her what to do. House these excuse. Go on she is. She is busy busy and excuse she didn't want you're telling her what to do how much you told me three times. How good she is with money and yet she doesn't do a budget so she's not good with money that's also. Bs how pay-cut did you take. I feel like that. That's coming into play somehow Well i worked a ridiculous overtime in law enforcement and so as you know. The crime rates been kind of spiking around the country. So i went from probably the one seventy range because of all the overtime down to about one hundred ten and and did y'all talk about that extensively and all the repercussions of that decision before it happened. Oh absolutely I was in a very high use area law enforcement. And so i was gone a lot and kind of realized with a certain shelf life of fat and so the promotion was the best way out of that because it came of a guaranteed pay increase. But i could be at home a lot more and not you know getting burnt out so much. Yeah right cool. So here's here's the thing you have been handling all the money and giving her an allowance to run the household on and she doesn't want you tinkering and her allowance so the you have to have a bigger vision to get her to speak into this and the bigger vision includes her voice counts. Her vote counts. She's not going to have things taking away from her but she is going to hold herself accountable. And you both are going to be held accountable to the a plan that you put in place. Cause your future to happen. And that is simply. We're going to sit down. We're going to sit down and do a the kids are gonna go to bed and we're gonna sit down and turn off television and we're going to have You know it takes about forty five minutes A week for the first ninety days and after that it takes about twenty minutes a week to keep a budget going so it does not take that much time. This is about more than time. Well and the the other thing jakup. I'll tell you because my husband. And i do this exactly like this. We will decide in advance when we're going to have that conversation. He came to me about anything. When i'm in the middle of putting meals on the table or wrangling. The kids no. I'm not that's not a good time to do that thing because you are. It's all hands on deck when the kids are up but if you say hey i'd like us to work on the budget on sunday night at eight. Does that work for you. And she says yes that works for me or no. Let's do this time instead and you literally put it on the counter case. I just wanna be. Are we on the same page. Sunday at eight. The kids are down. We're gonna we're gonna get the kitchen cleaned up. We're going to sit down and work on this together. Is that good. I want your input. And because i want us to be in agreement about where our future's going we've done a good job to date but with this pay-cut i'm really nervous and i need your help and you and you planet plan when you're going to have that conversation and then you do so then when sunday night comes like okay. Here we go. It's just agreed upon. It's not in this in the moment. Trying to squeeze a major conversation when life can be chaotic so just put it on the calendar and again like dave said share the why of it. Why does this matter why. And how you value her opinion and it's gonna give a different tone to it that that will hopefully make make go better. You guys have never agreed on your spending before you together You agreed on the mortgage stuff and that she got x. Number dollars after that to run the household in quotes whatever that meant to her. And you didn't care what it meant and so but now you have to care which is good. So you're going to aim at the future a little bit more detail in say were as a couple. Were going to set the vision for where we want to be in ten years and as a couple. We're going to decide what we have to do to accomplish that vision. The budget would reflect that. And jacob when you're having this conversation one of the thing. I'll throw in there. And i were given us several several tips here..

The toast man used to work in politics but now works for the power. He says the contraction is a disservice to communities like Charleston, which is hosted a minor league team for most seasons dating back to 1910. It's harder to swallow. And when you look at how there is now a large, gaping hole In this region of the country. That has been expelled from the major league minor league system. When Major League Baseball announced the reorganization, officials said one of the aims was to cut down on travel times between games and also ensure the facilities are up to date. Elster still hasn't sunk in for many people. Charleston's mayor Amy Goodwin, says catching games Appalachian Power Park has always been a go to for families. My kids grew up in that stadium.

Not only the trolls have along Andre, really robust history of baseball, But this stadium and this place Great so much happiness. Local officials are still sorting out with the economic fallout will be Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau CEO Tim Brady says it's not just those who worked at the stadium who will be affected.

New York's Broadway costume designers lament about being left out of coronavirus aid
"Shut down in March, actors and stagehands weren't the only ones affected. The Save Our Stages Act just passed as part of the Cove in relief bill and will help theaters and cultural institutions tread water until the pandemic is over. But as W one way sees Jennifer of Anasco reports some businesses that support the arts industry say they've been for gotten John Christians in New York Inc has built costumes for a lot of the big shows Cat's frozen and the new musical six, which was supposed to open on March. 12 the day that all of Broadway shutdown So we're getting ready for opening night That night, Every machine was filled. Every table was filled. People were doubled up. People were coming and going, and then Just like that they were closed. The leadoff all 52 of their employees. Like everyone they thought maybe let me for a few weeks, But in June, they were told No theater won't reopen in 2020, and for us, Everything stopped, like all of our orders just completely stopped. That's Brian Blight, Christensen's life partner and the business manager of John Christians in New York. And it was really a moment of what are we going to do? Are we gonna close? We put everything in storage, Do we? Walk away. They didn't Instead, Blake realized they weren't alone all through the city, small businesses that depend on Broadway and the theater industry. We're figuring out if they could survive the pandemic to And the shops are very specialized. A costumes aren't closed. You can't buy them off the wreck. They're made to measure for specific actors and designed for performers to dance and sweat in them eight times a week. Here's Christenson. But we do is cut your it should be the finest quality. It's the best interiors the best flat linings that we confined to make the product that will last a long time. And be beautiful and worth that ticket price, Christiansen and Blight realized they were part of an entire custom ecosystem. It includes specialty dry cleaners who care for $10,000 dresses made of fragile fabrics, study with sequence or flowers and people who know how to make those flowers and people who put the pleats in the fabric. And makers of tap shoes and toe shoes and beat artists and fabric painters. There are people who make specialty undergarments and hats and armor. The list goes on. So the two men joined with 54 other small businesses to found the costume industry coalition. They're clear about what they need money. Life once a kind of bailout from the government. $3 million to erase the debt of these small businesses for 2020 we have to, I think in this country I'm talking about the arts and culture as something that is a warm, fuzzy and wonderful the for the human soul and start talking about it as the economic driver that it actually is, because the economic between Arkin cultures huge, the U. S. Bureau of Economic Analysis says in 2017. The latest figures they have available. The arts and culture sector was contributing about $877 billion to the GDP. That's 4.5%. It employs over five million arts workers nationwide. In New York state. The sector contributes over 7% of the GDP. That's bigger than finance. It's bigger than construction. Hi, I'm Kevin McCollum. I'm a producer of Broadway shows, including the musical six. The one that was supposed to open the day Broadway closed. Save Our Stages is so important. Unfortunately, the shops are somewhat not involved in that. The venues will get grants, but the shops that support them. They need to wait until the orders come in. They say That's why the government should also give money to the costume industry. And to those who build sets and props. Because this is about more than the question of whether theater will survive. It will Well, the artists who make it the artisans who make it still be able to call themselves New Yorkers. Sure, I guess you could say Let's move everyone out of the city. And if that's the kind of city New York wants to be, I don't think that's the case. I think we want the artist to be able to afford and work and live in New York City. A few avenues over
"$3 million" Discussed on KNST AM 790
"Patty is listening to us and Dove Mountain and she writes. My husband and I are 65 years old. Now he's retired with a monthly pension of $1800. And when he dies, I'll be collecting the same amount for life. My husband and I will start to collect Social Security benefits on January 1st of 2022 when each of us will collect $2600 a month. Okay, so 2600 and 1800 with total assets of over $3 million, including Roth IRAs, traditional Rays and two properties. One of them is for rent. With the monthly profit of $1800. We have no debt and no long term care insurance. I'm going to retire March 2021 When I retire. I've got two choices. One collect a monthly pension of $1913 with my husband continuing to collect the same amount upon my death or to take a lump sum of $444,760. Could you please provide advice and the pros and cons? Which would you recommend? Well, if the main question is that last two thing, let me address the few things just as as I go in order to get to this last question, the lump sum version I have a real easy answer. If you'd left the 1st 90% of that out. I could still give you my opinion on this, but I want to do it in the context. Everything OK? So you've got about 220,000 year that you're living on that's kind of guaranteed income that you don't have to really do anything about. It's just going to come in. We call that your paychecks now I don't know if your lifestyle is $100,200. 500,000 year. What do you spend what you want to spend? That's that would be one of my great questions. But you know, with a $3 million a state, I don't know how much of that's Rafael Reyes if million of its Ross That's good and three million of its Ross even better. I think you have a potential depending on how much is in regular IRAs, or, for one case that $3 million may cause big tax fits in the future, And you may want to consider that those were some red flags I saw in the back story here. The other thing is, there's no long term care insurance. Who cares? You got $3 million. There's no way you're gonna blow through even interest on that money. Thing in a nursing home, so I wouldn't yourself insured. If you've got $100,000 in income to live on if one of you goes to a nursing home, and the other one could live on that, and you've got three million in the bank 3% average rate of interest is $100,000 a year and that's gonna cover nursing home. So I think yourself insured if you want to be. There are some options If you want to, just part part of that $3 million in a lump sum life insurance type policy that would double or triple in case you used nursing homes. It would grow tax free. It would pay out tax free on death, and you wouldn't have any taxable inches growing on it as well. So there's some ways to cover long term care if you want A long term care type policy to cover you and give you that extra boost. Should you use long term care and not have to dip into that $3 million nest egg? It would also be part of a nice tax plan. So I don't say don't get long term care. But consider long term care as blending with a tax plan it now as far as the money goes, I don't know if you need that extra income that 1913. I also don't know how good health you and your husband ran. Patty. It could be your 65 years old. You might live 25 35, maybe 40 years. You know who knows if you live a long time that 1913 guaranteed is kind of a nice deal is Actually, it has 100% spousal continuance. However, if you and your husband around, you know, hiking and you both take a slip and fall off a cliff. And you meet your maker earlier than expected. You know, you might have only got a couple of years of that $1900 a month and that foreign 44,000 is gone. If you want to make sure that that 450,000 roughly goes to your heirs, you could buy yourself your own pension. In fact, that your age the actual income would be about probably 1500 a month guaranteed for life for you and your husband. But If you fall off a cliff and direly whatever the balance is left in that $440,000 account will continue to go to your heirs. Now, if you end up spending all of it, you still get your 16 or $18,000 a year? Yeah, it might be a tiny bit less than that monthly pension. But there are ways to guarantee your cake and eat it, too, by protecting that principle and protecting that account and making sure you never get back less than that original amount. The only reason that the companies are willing to give you 1900 a month or, you know, say 21 22. $1000 a year. You have to give him that foreign and $44,000 is a really good chance. You your husband will both pass away before that account grows dry, and they end up winning, so they're well. They're willing to pay a little bit extra to take that chance on keeping some of your money Should you die early. That's kind of the old traditional annuity and a pension is a traditional old annuity. There are new annuities where you get to have the principle that you never actually jeopardize or you never commit that principle. To that payment. You just take a withdrawal benefit rather than an annuity. So you might want to consider those options. You also might want to consider that lump sum is being part of Ah, plan where you could take income, Maybe 12 or $1500 a month out tax free and still have a chunk available for long term care again. I said a lot in this, but you said a lot of your question was like ton. There's a ton of planning and gaps to fill in there or to ask. I don't know the answers. Maybe you have a lot of those gaps, Phil, but I see a lot of red flags going up like being being babying. You gotta look at this so If you or someone like you is listening in that situation, it would really be fun to go through that little checklist with you and find out all kinds of ways You could minimize taxes, increase income and make sure you keep us much of your money as possible. Love to meet with you. And this is this is like the stuff that gets my just gets me excited Telling doing retirement plans for me is kind of like a video game. You know, it's like, you know, you're out there trying to Bob and weave through the tax code saves much taxes. We're trying to increase the income guarantee. You know things based on certain assumptions based on planning for the worst, hoping for the best but making sure that all the contingencies, air covered and bottom line is just making sure you have the most efficient use of those assets you worked a lifetime to achieve. So that was an awesome question that's typically kind of like a first visit here when people come in is that's kind of how they lay it out..
