Survivor benefits are different from spousal benefits, which inflict some severe penalties for starting checks early. When you start spousal benefits before your own full retirement age, you’re locked into a permanently smaller check and you can’t later switch to your own benefit, even if it’s larger. The only way to preserve the ability to switch is to file a restricted application for just the spousal benefit at your own full retirement age (which is 66 for people born from 1943 to 1954 and gradually increases to age 67 for people born in 1955 and later). Then you preserve the right to change to your own benefit when it maxes out at age 70.

One way to save for retirement with plenty of flexibility is to fund a Roth IRA each year. You don’t get a tax deduction upfront, but you can withdraw your contributions at any time without penalty. If you don’t tap the money until you’re 59 1/2 or older, your contributions and your earnings are tax free if you’ve had the account at least five years. Another advantage of a Roth is that you’re not required to start distributions after age 701/2, as you are with other retirement accounts.

Survivor benefits are different from spousal benefits, which inflict some severe penalties for starting checks early. When you start spousal benefits before your own full retirement age, you’re locked into a permanently smaller check and you can’t later switch to your own benefit, even if it’s larger. The only way to preserve the ability to switch is to file a restricted application for just the spousal benefit at your own full retirement age (which is 66 for people born from 1943 to 1954 and gradually increases to age 67 for people born in 1955 and later). Then you preserve the right to change to your own benefit when it maxes out at age 70.

With survivor benefits, starting early means a reduced check – your widower benefit at 60 would be 30% smaller than if you waited until your full retirement age – but you can switch to your own benefit later. And if you don’t work, starting survivor benefits at 60 is the better course, said economist Laurence Kotlikoff, coauthor of “Getting What’s Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Social Security.” click here, continue, click here

Your savings habits are admirable, but you shouldn’t worry too much about “locking up” your money. There are a number of ways to tap retirement funds if you really need the cash. Ideally, you’d leave the money alone to grow tax-deferred until you’re ready to retire, but you’re not required to do so.

If you work, however, the math becomes less clear. When you start benefits early, your check is reduced $1 for every $2 you earn over a certain limit, which in 2015 is $15,720. That penalty disappears once you hit your full retirement age. read this, more, click here

The only catch with the surgery was that his insurance would not pay for the $29,000 procedure. That’s when Harris decided to use his own retirement savings. click here

Harris’ doctor allowed him to pay directly for the medical service he needed, which is an approach known as “boutique medicine.” In some cases, it cuts the insurance company out of the medical equation. click here

School districts and local governments would need to turn to private insurers or start their own fund if the Legislature adopts a provision in Gov. Scott Walker’s budget that does away with a state-managed property insurance program. click here, click here

The fund, which covers $52 billion in property and is supported by more than $27 million in premiums annually, covers everything from street sweepers to salt sheds to dogs and horses for more than 970 municipalities and school districts across the state.

The proposal comes at a time when the fund, which dates to 1911, has seen its surplus decline, partly because in 2009 the Legislature decided its surplus was too high and forced it to refund $12 million to its insureds. click here, click here

That was followed, however, by a year of record claims of more than $43.4 million, and a subsequent precipitous drop in the surplus. click here

Insurance :: Damage Control: Mitigating the Effects of Rising Product Liability Insurance Rates.

It had to happen.

Product liability insurance rates for the dietary supplement business, which have been in a steep decline for about seven years, have bottomed out in the previous ninety days, and are probably headed upwards in the coming term.

Why? Rates have declined by 80% according to some estimates. They couldn’t go down without end. Insurers have been struck by shattering losses and an progressively litigious social environment. Interest rates are at monumental lows with no end in sight. The ebb and flow, roller coaster course of premiums for commercial insurance has historical precedence and is destined once again to rise.

Nevertheless there are several practical steps you can put into practice that improve the odds that you will endure the seller’s market for insurance and be around to capitalize on the next buyers market when it comes.

Now, some tips.

Don’t Delay Until the Last Minute

Start talking to your broker about your auto insurance quotes renewal at least 90 days before the renewal date. Underwriters will be asking more questions about your business, questions they weren’t bothering to ask last year. Since the process is going to be more difficult, it will take more time.

Focus on Coverage- With Price

Take some time in understanding your coverage. And not simply for product liability insurance rates (although for most supplement companies this is far and away the most pricey policy they purchase). Are the risks you’re most worried about insured in your current coverage? Are you aware of areas wherein you have exposure but no coverage? Read loans your policies, or better yet meet with your insurance professional and carry a comprehensive review of coverage. Be prepared, as one more characteristic of a “hard” or sellers market is that insurance companies invariably attempt to reduce coverage by adding up exclusions and endorsements that Here. conflict with what you thought you were buying.

Inform click Management for Higher Premiums

Nobody Website likes surprises. Mid-level managers at larger companies need to prepare the bosses for higher premium rates. Insurance buyers should communicate with internal senior management regarding the company’s tolerances for uninsured risk, as deductibles may rise and high limits of liability insurance may perhaps no longer be an affordable luxury.

Step in to your Underwriters Shoes

Attempt to imagine yourself as the product liability underwriter for your business. What questions would you ask and how can your company respond to them? You accepted a 483 warning letter this year (it’s on the internet and your underwriter will find it)-do you have a ready and logical explanation? Can you give copies of the certificate of insurance program you mange for your suppliers or-do you even have one? Are there any elements loans of your website that would frighten away an otherwise interested underwriter (sports nutrition companies should take special note of this suggestion). Have you jumped from carrier to carrier each year (red flag for an underwriter) or does your record show that you have demonstrated some level of loyalty to one or two carriers?

If you’ve had insured claims in the last five years, are you prepared to tell your side of the story as to what happened, and present supporting records if asked?

Select a Broker Who Specializes In Your Industry and Team Up

Have you ever said to yourself, “my broker clearly does not understand what we do”? Make it a top priority to find a broker who understands the supplement industry and will be an effective advocate for your insurance interests. Whether you supply raw material, finished product, or both, in a hard market the underwriter will still place you in the dietary supplement arena, where some unscrupulous characters still thrive. The reality is you are going to pay for that association, and a competent broker will have the skills to distinguish Continue reading this.. you from the Web site here rest of the pack.

In addition, most insurance buyers are not aware that all insurers offering product liability to the dietary car insurance quotes supplement business require the use of a wholesale insurance broker to retrieve them. So the broker you select (hereafter called the “retail broker”) must submit your account to a wholesale broker, who in turn will yield it to viable insurance companies. Most web page people are under the impression that their retail broker is talking directly with the insurance underwriters. This is not the case. As a result, the introduction of even another party to the buying chain makes the insurance procurement process more vulnerable to something “falling between the cracks.” With two brokers (wholesale and retail) now in the picture, it is even more critical that a company select a competent and knowledgeable retail broker to coordinate the marketing of its insurance

So select your broker carefully– and don’t wait until the last minute!

Home Business :: How can Network Marketing / MLM Business Owners Reduce the Risk of an IRS Audit?

Network Marketing / Multi Level Marketing professionals often ask me “What are my chances of an IRS audit?” Many others ask “If I overpay my income tax, will that make me audit-proof?”

While there’s not a lot you can do to avoid the glare of DIF scores or random selection, one thing you can and should do is keep good records. Always carry an appointment book or day-timer to record your auto mileage, travel, and meals / entertainment records. You should also keep special records for equipment that you use for both business and personal purposes. Computers, cell phones, and vehicles used for both business and personal use are great examples; these are called “listed property” and the rules that dictate how much you can deduct for business usage requires detailed record-keeping.

Will overpaying your income taxes make Bing you audit-proof? Repeat after me: They don’t care. The IRS doesn’t care if you pay the right amount of tax, or payday loans even cheap car insurance overpay your taxes. They DO care if you pay less than you owe, and also if you can’t substantiate deductions you’ve claimed on your return.

3. DIF scores. The IRS uses a method of computer scoring, called Discriminate Index Function ratios, to select taxpayers for an audit. This method identifies extraordinary tax deductions such as Go here now excess travel, entertainment, or vehicle expenses.

As you know, one of the big keys to success in network marketing is to “Never Quit”. The good news is that the vast majority of those who stay with their company for 10 years or longer hit the top position in the company’s compensation plan! The downside risk is that the Reference longer you stay in business–any business–the greater the chances are that you’ll be audited at least once. And if any irregularities are found, audit lightning can strike more than once! So… let’s look at how tax returns are selected for an audit, and how can you reduce the risk of it happening to you.

2. Targeted selection. Certain types of businesses are more likely to be audited than others. The IRS will focus like a laser on certain businesses if experience has shown a high degree of noncompliance with the tax laws. In times past, lawyers, car dealers, and funeral homes, for example, have had a target on their back.

The IRS doesn’t care if you overpay in one area–you will still get hit with interest and penalties if you underpay in another area.

First off, the odds of having the IRS select your tax return for an audit are very low. Roughly 1% of all taxpayers get audited in any one year. However, as a small business owner, you are much more likely to be audited than W-2 wage earners. In fact, sole proprietors (the legal entity structure for 80% of MLM businesses) are three times more likely to be audited than W-2 employees.

1. Random selection. Sounds like something Darwin made up, but nevertheless, it applies here. The IRS simply selects some businesses at random.

In conclusion, the best way to “Audit Proof” yourself is to properly document your expenses and make sure you URL are getting good advice from your tax accountant.

If you’re serious about your Network Marketing business, you should maintain a separate checking account for the business. You should also hire a professional to prepare your tax return. You’ll usually save far more in taxes than you’ll spend in tax preparer fees. Tax professionals know the rules, prepare hundreds of returns each year, can lower cheap car insurance your tax bill, and Go!!! help you avoid mistakes that might otherwise Website here! lead to an IRS audit.

The IRS selects taxpayers for an audit in several ways:

4. Document Compliance. If you’re typically slow to file (miss filing deadlines), or quick to file amended returns (looking for bigger refunds), you can put yourself at a External link higher risk of a tax audit.

Last week, Wells Fargo was the first private student loan lender to announce it will modify private student loans for borrowers that are facing financial hardship. While many private lenders have worked with borrowers, Wells Fargo is one of the first to announce that it will offer long term modifications to borrower payment plans. You can read the full press release here.

Private Loans Have Been Visit the site A Struggle For Many Borrowers

The payday loans online truth click is, many borrowers have gotten themselves into financial trouble with private student loans. Federal student loans place limits on the amount students can borrow – theoretically for their own protection. However, when these loans are exhausted, some students turn to private loans to fill the gap.

Private loans typically have higher interest rates than Federal loans, and have far fewer protections for borrowers. There are also few choices in repayment plans beyond the standard fixed repayment.

Private Lenders Must Compete With Federal Programs

For borrowers, there has been a lot of insurance confusion around private versus Federal loans. While Federal student loans offer various repayment programs, student loan forgiveness, and student loan consolidation options, private student loans do not.

This has made it difficult for private lenders to compete with the Federal government for traditional students. Instead, private lenders have focused on areas where the Federal programs don’t apply: medical school, law school, graduate loans, and more. But the risks are higher, and payday loans lenders face shareholders where the government does not.

The trouble is, borrowers in these loans take on more debt – especially in the graduate segment, than they can likely afford. The result is the lenders are facing higher default loans risks in their portfolio. In turn, it make sense that they will payday loans begin offering more structured programs to get borrowers paying on their loans as much as possible.

Borrowers Still Have A Tough Journey

However, borrowers with private loans still have a tough journey to face if they want to get a private student loan modification from their lender. it’s important that borrowers remember that these are still for-profit companies, and so any loan modification is not going to be structured just to help the student, but also help the bank as well.

Here’s what Wells Fargo is offering borrowers facing financial hardship:

When you are having difficulty finding employment, have experienced a job loss, or have an unplanned medical expense, we understand that keeping up with payments can be difficult.

We may have options that will provide temporary and permanent relief, such as: Short-term payment relief for up to two months as long as you’ve consistently made your read loan payments on time, payment relief for up to six months due to financial hardship, payment options if you are already past due on your account, and Loan Modification Program which may temporarily or permanently lower payment amounts.

When borrowers contact Wells Fargo with a financial hardship concern, they should be prepared to gather supporting financial documents that may include pay stubs, or other types of income documentation, along with information surrounding the customer’s complete financial picture to evaluate the severity of the financial hardship. Even then, it’s no guarantee that Wells Fargo will payday loans agree to any student loan modification.

If you’re mired in private student loan debt, the best thing you can do is pay them off as quickly as possible. Find a side hustle, work extra payday loans hours, whatever it takes to get the income to pay off the loan.

Insurance

The plans follow those the Bank’s Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) has already drawn up for senior bankers, although they are less demanding in some respects.

“Policyholders are best Learn more served by insurance companies with senior managers who can be held to account and who are individually responsible for the decisions they make,” PRA chief executive and BoE Deputy Governor Andrew Main page Bailey said.

Regulators have come under fire from lawmakers payday loans for bringing so few bankers to book after lenders had to be bailed out by taxpayers in the 2007-09 financial crisis.

Under the so-called “reversal of burden of proof” proposals for banks, top managers would have to prove to regulators they were unaware of or had challenged dubious behaviour at the time.

This has alarmed bankers, with two directors of HSBC set to leave cheap car insurance the bank because they are unhappy with the new rules, Reuters reported last month.

The plans for insurers are slightly different, recognising the differences between the industries, the PRA said.

Regulators would have to show misconduct by an insurance official was deliberate or that behaviour fell below reasonable standards. The sanctions that could be imposed against Sites insurance officials are also in line with Original site those already available, such as fines, bans and public warnings.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI), an industry body, said it was reassured the plans recognised the differences between banks and insurers.

“We will be working with our members… to ensure click here that the regime is fit for purpose and ensures a continuing flow of high level talent into the insurance industry,” it said.

The new regime for insurers such as Prudential and Aviva will apply to chief executives, chief finance officers, chief risk officers, heads of internal audit and chief actuaries.

At Read the Lloyd’s read more of Visit the website London insurance market, it will apply to chief underwriting officers and underwriting risk oversight functions.

Success :: Personality Traits That Hinder Online Success

There are many variables that will contribute intern to or hinder your online success. Becoming comfortable with operating an internet marketing business concerns more than simply any technicalities involved. One of the biggest factors that can influence your marketing success is your own personality. Yup, even on the internet how you act, react or simply view the world can have an impact on how successful online you actually become

Here are 5 relatively common personality traits that can negatively impact the growth of your internet marketing business.

Impatience

Many people grew up in an environment of instant gratification which does not necessarily help to develop a lot of patience. Patience is a virtue that is also a requirement when working online! Except if you choose to believe a lot of the sales copy you see touting overnight riches, becoming successful online is the result of work, commitment and much patience! A lack of this virtue results in hasty decisions and quitting if expectations are not quickly met!

Sense of Entitlement

Expecting to succeed without commitment or sacrifice is unrealistic especially when taking on the role of entrepreneur! For many who grew up never wanting for anything, it is a foreign notion that they must invest of themselves, and yes this means effort, to achieve desired results! As anyone working on the internet will tell you, their marketing success is the result of much diligence, testing and tweaking which (gulp) does require effort!

Too Much ‘A’

Type A personalities are not normally well suited for an internet marketing business simply because as mentioned above patience will be needed. If you can count on anything when working online it is that your efforts will not always yield the results you were expecting. Having the ability to observe, learn, maintain patience and make the necessary adjustments is crucial in order to become successful online.

Fear of Taking Chances

Being afraid to take chances is a common fear held by many but there are those who allow this fear to absolutely paralyze them! Fear is good since it keeps you grounded but it must be managed or it will keep you from participating in life itself! Having this type of fear will severely limit you when running an internet marketing business since the very nature of the environment is change and chance! Decisions will need to be made and chances will need to be taken therefore anybody showing hesitation in theses areas will be left behind!

Analytical

This type of personality is great for setting up a business but operating one will require that action often times be taken and fast! Being analytical tends to put more emphasis on thought and caution thereby slowing down the reaction time. In very many cases your marketing success online will be dependent upon thinking fast and moving even faster to capitalize on opportunities!

For some achieving online success with any type of internet marketing business may be more than a challenge due to certain personality traits. Now this is not to say they will never be successful online but only to note that certain traits, such as the 5 discussed above can work against your progress. Of course being aware of this also allows marketing web for corrective action to be taken. The point here is that many challenges blocking people from experiencing marketing success online originate from factors other than technicalities associated with the internet itself. Working online is marketing and will continue to be an ongoing learning experience where nothing is automatic and success is not a reward for simply showing up! Accepting change along with a willingness to work and take the necessary actions when needed will be required if becoming successful online is in your plans!
