To pay, or not to pay, that is the question on today’s episode of the Prosperity Podcast. Todd Strobel and Kim D.H. Butler respond to a client question about how to approach and handle money in a pre-tax account against when it’s in a post-tax account. Kim and Todd explain the issues that arise with the 401(k) and IRA realms. They offer alternatives to handle IRA money, as well as, options outside of traditional thinking, which include bridge loans, life settlements, and life insurance.
