2nd Quarter 2016: First Aid Kit
By Benton S. Bragg CFP®, CFA®

I just spent a fortune on a first aid kit! Next week I leave town for two weeks with 40 teenagers and 10 brave adults from Boy Scout Troop 58 in Davidson, North Carolina, to go to Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico. Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America's largest national High Adventure Base and the world's largest youth camp. The ranch covers 137,000 acres—about 214 square miles—of rugged mountain wilderness in the Sangre de Cristo range of the Rocky Mountains in northern New Mexico. Read more

A QCD can be used to satisfy all or a portion of the IRA holder's required distribution for that calendar year. Read more

Social Security and the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015
January 2016
by George W. Climer III, CFP®

The recently-passed Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 eliminates two presumably unintended but popular Social Security claiming strategy loopholes: File-and-Suspend and Restricted Application. However, for a few eligible folks a temporary window remains—a six-month period that began the day Congress passed the new legislation, to be exact. Read more
