Phishing - Don't take the bait!

Mar 8, 2019

Phishing is when you get emails, texts or calls that seem to be from companies or people you know. But they're actually from scammers. They want you to click on the link or give personal information (like password) so that they can steal your money or identity, and maybe get access to your computer.

The Bait

Scammers use familiar company names or pretend to be someone you know. They ask you to click on a link or give passwords or  bank account numbers. If you click on the link, they can install programs that lock you out of your computer and can steal your personal information.

They pressure you to act now - or something bad will happen.

If you have just ONE New Year Resolution...

Jan 25, 2019

Save More for Retirement!!

This year you can save more in your workplace 401(k) retirement savings account. The maximum contribution has increased from $18,500 in 2018 to $19,000, so consider increasing the amount you are contributing, making sure you’re saving at least enough to get your employer match.

Remember that even the most generous matching policy won’t be enough to fully fund your retirement, so it's always a good idea to save as much as possible.  

If you don’t have a match or a 401(k) plan, consider setting up a recurring auto-deposit into a Roth IRA. In 2019 you can contribute up to $6,000, assuming you meet the income requirements (less than $120,000 a year if you’re single, or $189,000 a year if you’re married). 

If you’re able, you can contribute to both a 401(k) and a Roth IRA for a grand total of $25,000 saved for retirement.
