Below are tips we tweeted last month. Click on each tip to view the source.

Avoid an IRS audit by making sure you claim all required income, including payouts from your retirement plan (form 1099-R) and Social Security benefits (form 1099-SSA).

Pay attention to proposed legislation that could impact your retirement planning – e.g., the SECURE Act will remove age restrictions for IRAs and change the age to begin RMDs.

Create a lifestyle you can sustain – track your spending and set limits on frivolous expenses.

Remember there are loans to pay for your child’s college education but there are no loans to pay for your retirement.

If you’re serious about saving for an upcoming summer vacation, then cut back on another expense temporarily.

One of the 5 P’s of Life is “Personal Finance” – your money. While money isn’t everything, it helps you achieve the lifestyle you want to live.
