Meeting with a financial adviser can be expensive. The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) says its members, who receive only fees and not commissions, generally charge clients between $150 and $300 an hour. But for two days only NAPFA and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine are making financial advisers available for free to address your personal investment, tax, or insurance concerns.
“Volunteer advisers from across the country are prepared to help as many people as possible during these challenging times,” says NAPFA chief executive officer Ellen Turf. You can get your retirement questions answered during this 9th annual event by phone (888-919-2345) or online today (January 22) and Tuesday, January 26 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time. The advisers recommend that you have your 401(k) statement and menu of investment options handy.
