Planning for the future would be a whole lot easier if you knew how long you'd be around and how healthy those years could be.
While it's not perfect, researchers at the University of Connecticut have come up with a tool that will calculate your life expectancy based on your current lifestyle. It also shows you how some simple tweaks might add years to your life.
This week we've been inundated with client's calls, who are cleaning up their offices/files after tax season. They want to know how long to keep stuff and why they get so much mail from LPL? Well, we have some answers for you.
First, on how long to keep stuff. Unfortunately, the answer is, it depends. But those of you with overflowing filing cabinets can likely shred much of it. Click on the link below for a list of what to keep and for just how long.
If you're looking to reduce the mail LPL sends to your house. The first step is having an online profile in Account View. From there you have the option to opt out of many LPL mailings. While not everything can be paperless, it is a good place to start.
Yes, this is a little way off, but time does have a way of just flying by. Starting in 2021, Americans will need additional authorization to travel to about half of Europe.
The 26 countries that make up Europe's Schengan area, will be requiring documentation and fees for travelers entering. The details are still being worked out, but they estimate the paperwork will only take ten minutes to complete and cost around $7. And the best news is that it won't require a trip to the consulate; like some visas do.
If you're planning a river cruise or some other adventure to Europe in 2021 and beyond, don't forget to make sure you've got all your documents ahead of the trip.
