Financial Planning Tip(s)-
Social Security Increase
Don’t smirk at 2%, every penny counts! With a CPI (Consumer Price Index) increase of 2% year over year, the Social Security Administration passed the good news on earlier this month. Take that 2% increase and run!
Capital Market Comments
Rates are Slowly Ticking Up
After much silence on interest rates, we have taken notice of recent movement as the global economy begins to pick up steam … Overseas seems to really be getting their act together.
Consumer Sentiment Also Higher
The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment hit a post “Great Recession” high this month.
With two thirds of our US Economy being based on consumer consumption, this bodes well for the Economy.
See you at the end of November, which also features our very special Blooper Thanksgiving Video from a few years ago!
Happy Fall Season!
