Free Advice from a Financial Advisor for 2 Days in January

January 4th, 2010 at 12:48 pm

Ever wish you could sit down and chat with a personal financial advisor and receive personalized financial advice, but didn't want to pay $150 to $300 an hour? Do you think you're pretty much on track toward reaching your financial goals, but still wish a financial advisor could confirm that?

Well, now's your chance.

For two days in January, the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and Kiplinger's Magazine will open their phone lines from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., Eastern Standard Time, to dispense financial advice, absolutely free. NAPFA considers this a public service. For the ninth year, NAPFA is making this opportunity available to anyone, not just Kiplinger's subscribers. All you need do is make sure you have your financial paperwork at the ready, should the advisor require further details to answer your question.

So mark your calendars for Friday, January 22 and Tuesday, January 26. Just call 888-919-2345 to speak to a NAPFA advisor. If you like, you can also participate in an online discussion with a NAPFA advisor at

Text is Kiplinger's and Link is
Kiplinger's on those two dates.

If you could ask a financial advisor a single question, what would it be?

    Ohhh my goodness! I'm thrilled about this. Thanks so much for letting us know. Smile
    If I could ask a financial advisor just one question it would be... umm, I don't know, to be honest, there are so many. I'll think on that and get back with you. lol

    My question would be: Popular financial advice says that you should invest for retirement, even if it means not paying for higher education for your children. I disagree, if your child cannot afford college or tech training without some help from you, you are resigning them to a lifetime of low wages and struggle. If they have a degree, or means to a well paying job, they can help you out later on if necessary. Comment on that.

    I missed this last year, even though I meant to participate. Excited to have another chance--thanks for posting the reminder!

    Oh, and my single question would be: If you're earning income in the U.S. but plan to retire in England, what are the tax implications and where should you invest your money--e.g., can Roth IRAs still be withdrawn tax-free if you're living in England?

    Great question, girltherapy. I've often thought the same thing. (I'm assuming you mean the advice to start putting away money for your *kids'* retirement instead of college, not your own retirement.)
