On August 1st, Nancy Doyle was a guest on WGN Radio Wintrust Business Lunch. The topic was how millennials can save a million dollars. It is important to start early and be consistent. Save and invest every year. You also must be disciplined. Once you invest that money, you cannot touch it.

WBBM’s Noon Business Hour for 7/12/2017 On July 12th, Nancy Doyle was a guest on WBBM Newsradio Noon Business Hour. The topic was important retirement milestones. Take advantage of catch-up provisions starting at age 50 that allow you to put away even more money for retirement. For 401(k) and 403(b) plans, those over 50 can save an extra $6,000 for retirement, or up to $24,000. For IRA and Roth IRAs, the catch-up provision is $1,000 on top of the $5,500 you can put away each year. At what age you start collecting social security has a big impact on the size of the payments for both you and a spouse that may survive you. Keep these milestones in mind as you plan for the future. Note – the segment begins at 19:55.
