May 30, 2017 (Tuesday) – Mary Galvez, who was going to speak on guardianship and care management services, has been rescheduled for the October Breakfast Club due to a conflict. In her place, Phil Messuri, MOAA member, CFP, and Registered Investment Advisor, will be our guest speaker, talking about IRAs. IRAS have many rules that include required minimum distributions (RMD) starting at age 70½. Besides understanding the RMD rules, there are many tax strategies associated with IRAs that investors should consider. Whether you have already started your IRA drawdowns or are planning to, you won’t want to miss what Phil has to say. Remember, it is not how much you make, but how much you keep. Timing is everything!
