Mitch says that fees are eating away at your bottom line, which is why he launched MarketRiders.com for do it yourselfers and Rebalance-IRA.com for those who want to outsource their management. And here's a stunning a fact: a recent ReBalance-IRA study found that half of the people surveyed think that they are paying ZERO in fees.

Marcia from Maryland asked about collecting Social Security benefits from an ex-spouse, David from Texas wants to know whether he should he use extra cash flow to fund a Roth and separately, what's the best college funding vehicle? Jo from Louisville wants to know whether investment advisory fees are worth it and Sharon wrote in about my recent segment on CBS This Morning about “Women and Money”.
