What we discuss on this show:
2:57 – Mailbag Question #1: I have $16k remaining on a student loan for my daughter. I can pay it off but it’s currently not accruing any interest and payments are temporarily suspended because of the pandemic. Should I just let it sit there for now?
5:14 – Mailbag Question #2: I was furloughed for about 4 months this year. I received unemployment during that time and I just realized I didn’t have taxes withheld from it. Will I have to pay penalties on this?
7:38 – Mailbag Question #3: My husband isn’t great with money so I handle all the bills and the decisions for our retirement accounts. As we get closer to retirement, should I make him get more involved?
