  • I’m guest blogging at AFM again

    I had a lot of fun filling in for JLP at All Financial Matters last year while he was on vacation, so I was delighted when he asked me to fill in for him again this year.

    Yesterday, I discussed how I could find $12,000 in our budget if I had to. And today, I explained what I’ve learned about Social Security death benefits. Tomorrow, I’ll write about Social Security disability benefits.

    If you don’t read AFM already, I encourage you to subscribe. JLP is a certified financial planner and much more knowledgeable than I am about investing and the economy. He’s also very good with numbers, doing the kind of calculations that make my head spin, to back up his assertions. (And the lawyer in me appreciates the factual basis!) I learn a lot when I read AFM and I think you will, too.


    1. Thank you for the link to AFM. I’m always looking for good PF blogs to read.
