Ready (and needing) to learn
I've been reading this forum for a few weeks now and thought it time to join and seek some friendly advice. I appreciate how helpful everyone is here!
What has brought me here is that my MIL is recently widowed and her husband took care of all of their finances. Now that he is gone it has fallen to me to help her figure things out with regard to her retirement income/investments. Because this is the "Welcome" forum, I won't post my question here but will do so in the "Fire and Money" forum.
Fwiw, my situation is as follows: 49 yo, married, three kids (19, 17, and 16), wife and I are both educators so we probably won't RE but we do have a LBYM attitude and have saved as much as we can. My MIL is 73, widowed a few months ago.
One last thing. We are looking for a financial planner for her, probably through the Garrett Network. I know to look for a fee-only, fiduciary, but until we find one I thought I'd seek advice and help here.
I look forward to meeting everyone, and I thank you for the advice and knowledge found in these forums!
