Re: The SECURE Act's Big Money Grab

Actually, I started this thread because everything I read made it sound like the Secure Act was certain to pass the Senate and be signed into law imminently, but I just saw this: https://www.planadviser.com/exclusives/secure-act-ensnared-senate-flying-house/ and also, I saw that Bogleheads has close...

Soooooo mad at Vanguard!!

We have our investments at Vanguard, and I've been reasonably happy with them (not outrageously thrilled, but reasonably happy) for many years until this past Friday. Background: I've been getting emails from Vanguard about some vote they're having (I totally don't know what it's about and don't car...

Maybe beheading is the default punishment when they can't think up something more poetic. Thank you so much for bringing this up, Dualstow.  Th...

Re: What device do you use on this forum?
