Military Money Show

Aug 20, 2018

Making a game plan and learning how to invest for your Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) or your 401k retirement plan can be a little difficult if you don’t know what you’re doing. And, once you make decisions and set it up, that doesn’t mean you forget about it until you retire. No, you have to review and rebalance your investments to make sure they are in line with your plan.

In Episode 12 of the Military Money Movement Podcast, co-hosts Hank Coleman and Lacey Langford are talking with Chris Costello, CFP® 

Chris is a great storyteller who has you learning about rebalancing and retirement savings before you know it. He also shares an extremely valuable benefit of being a blooom member. I’ll give you a hint, it has to do with getting free financial advice.

In this episode we discuss:

  • The retirement management options for the nonrich
  • The free analysis blooom does on your account
  • How awesome the Thrift Savings Plan is
  • The secret to the three o’s in blooom
  • What it means to “rebalance” your TSP or 401k and why it’s important
  • What we can learn from the past to help our retirement savings
  • Common mistakes people make with their TSP
