13 Cool Passive Income Apps if You're Retired

Retirement doesn’t quite mean what it used to. For many of us, the picture of retirement looked like kicking your feet up, traveling, and perhaps taking time to get into some new hobbies. You worked hard your entire life, and now it’s time to take some much needed time off from work. 

Today, that isn’t exactly the case. As the average life expectancy for Americans keeps rising, more people are working well into their 70s. Even then, retirement doesn’t look like it used to in that more and more retirees are continuing to work part-time, citing that the extra income is a nice boost and adds to their peace of mind.

Your Investments and the Coronavirus; What Should You Be Doing

Recent outbreaks of the coronavirus (a.k.a., COVID-19) outside of China have raised concerns about its containment. These increased concerns have sent stocks quickly lower over the last few trading days as you've probably seen if you've been on the internet (it's pretty impossible to miss at this point).

While we don’t know how many people the virus will infect, the length of this viral cycle and what influence it will ultimately have on the economy, we do know that you probably have some questions about how it could affect your investments.

What is a Solo 401(k)?

Investing for your retirement is important, but it’s something that many people don’t plan ahead for. Many of us are left scrambling for what feels like years or decades later trying to scrape together a retirement account or 401(k). 

One question that we get fairly often in regards to retirement is: What options are available to me if I am self-employed?

The NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup February 21, 2020

Once again, China released a large number of new confirmed cases of the coronavirus, with nearly 800 more cases overnight. This then resulted in a major drop in stocks, with fear over the global economic slowdown bound to happen. It kinds of seems like this is a recurring theme.

Earlier this week the market was up, as the number of confirmed cases had its lowest growth since January. This lifted investor sentiment and we saw S&P 500 and Nasdaq hit record highs. There was also talk of China taking action to lessen the effect of the coronavirus on their airline industry.

What is a Donor Advised Fund?

A Donor Advised Fund (DAF) is like a charitable-giving savings account, helping you maximize your tax benefits while making a bigger impact on your favorite charitable causes.

Illustrated below, the IRS defines a Donor Advised Fund as: “A separately identified fund or account that is maintained and operated by a section 501(c)(3) organization, which is called a sponsoring organization. Each account is composed of contributions made by individual donors. Once the donor makes the contribution, the organization has legal control over it. However, the donor, or the donor's representative, retains advisory privileges with respect to the distribution of funds and the investment of assets in the account.”

Stocks were up this week, but little changed today as investors are still digesting the disappointing consumer data and strong earnings.

Are You Obsessed With Money?

As the saying goes, money makes the world go round. Living in modern society means that you can’t avoid money, no matter how hard you try. Need to get some food? That costs money. Need to get gas in your car? Swipe your card or fork over a few bills. Virtually every aspect of your life revolves around money - earning it, spending it, and saving it. 

For the most part, scrutinizing your money habits is a good thing. You don’t want to constantly worry about where your next paycheck is coming from, or whether you have enough cash to pay for something. However, while a detailed understanding of your money is good, it’s too easy to get carried away.

What is an Investment Policy Statement?

In its simplest terms, an investment policy statement (IPS) is a list of rules drawn up between you and your financial planner to set clear and concrete goals for each other. It also works as a game plan for the financial planner so that they can employ their expertise in the best way they see fit to meet your goals in a timely and efficient manner. 

Specifically, a financial advisor would look at risk, liquidity and asset allocation. An IPS serves as a manual of sorts to manage these three components but can include additional items as well.
