The Show:

How are you doing?

That used to be a kind gesture you might ask someone in passing, never really expecting much of an answer. Now it’s something we are asking clients quite often during all of the phone calls and virtual meetings we’re holding.

So we wanted to provide an update for those that have been missing that interaction and human contact. That’s what we’ll do on this episode of Your Money & Your Life with Don Cash. As things begin to reopen here in New Jersey and across the northeast, more and more people are taking steps to return to normalcy but there’s still a ways to go.

Instead of spending the entire show on the impact coronavirus is having on the economy, let’s focus some time on what it’s doing to people in our community from a personal standpoint. We’ll ask Don about the approach clients are taking to this new normal, whether they’re managing to stay active and healthy, and whether they’ve started venturing out.

One thing to keep in mind right now is some companies are providing discounts to people so make sure you check with your insurance company to see if that’s being offered.

After we finish up our conversation on health and wellness, we’ll take a Cash Connection question from a listener that received a much larger inheritance than expected and wants to be responsible with it. So what are their options for that money and what tax obligations are they going to have?

Thanks for listening to the show. Please stay healthy and safe and we’ll talk to you again soon.

Inflation, Interest Rates, and Investment Volatility – Part 2

It seems like all the talk lately as been inflation, interest rates and investment volatility. Every time you look at the news you see rising inflation numbers, gas prices seem to have actually gone up again and the stock market has been crazy volatile. Add in another interest rate increase by the Federal Reserve and the list of issues gets longer and longer. We didn’t have enough time to dig deep into all of these things so, let’s see if we can make some sense of what’s going on and what we can do about it.
