Host Frances Lev Makino
Today's topic: Navigating Retirement Account Withdrawals


During this Good Morning Howard session, Frances Lev Makino will discuss financial strategies for navigating retirement account withdrawals. There are many financial considerations surrounding IRA's and Frances will focus on how to spend down traditional IRA's and what happens when a person inherits a traditional IRA. Frances will also discuss IRMA fees relating to Medicare and income. Frances will review the most tax efficient ways to pass wealth to the next generation. Questions are welcomed and encouraged and will be answered as time permits.

Come to join us for our “Good Morning, Howard!”  zoom group.  We will be following the new schedule as listed below:

Wednesday at 9:00 AM

Our goal is to provide Howard County residents an opportunity to come together in a relaxed atmosphere, to meet with others, and to participate in the discussion/activities of Health and Wellness. Our content may include using technology to connect with family and friends, gardening, exercise, music, movies, jokes, popular websites, and healthy diet.

Participation is easy because driving is not required. This social program is for TVIH members and older adults from Howard County. 

Volunteers (TVIH members) will take turns to serve as the hosts of the GMH zoom meetings. The hosts will greet the participants, make introductions, and give the feedback/suggestions back to the membership committee.

Most people will join by using their computer, tablet or smartphone. To join, you need a zoom meeting link. The link will be emailed to you after you register.
