((laura 2shot)) ?are you rushing around getting ready for work right now??? maybe you're daydreaming of are you rushing around right now getting ready for work in maybe day dreaming of day you get to call it quits. but if you want to retired you need to start planning early. maybe that's what i didn't do. our consumer reporter is back with us this morning. as we continue a week long series geared to helping you achieve what you want to be when it comes to your career and your finances. >> yeah, good morning everyone. yesterday we talked about what you want to do if you want to be debt free. today we're taking step further i'm here with financial advisor robert harwood to talk about you want to he retired. we introduced you to him in our story last night now he's here taking some questions. thank you so much for being here. thank you. first question, i think a lot of people russell was joking about it does start planningally enough what is your general
didn't start soon enough. first you can't start too shoon soon you want to do best you can all the time. but get help. develop to somebody and like i need a little advice can you give me guidance show me how to build my path to retirement and get profession will help as you're going down that path. >> and that is why we have you here this morning to give some advice. some of offer viewers we asked them on facebook twitter social media. we did get with coming transition from democratic to republican presidency would out recommend aggressivively or conservatively for retirement? should she be make changes >> what a great question. number one always be careful. always be conservative. there's no reason to be aggressive we want to make fair rate of return consistently overtime you don't need to be aggressive. we do have a new president let's adjust our portfolio appropriately we're investing in the right things right way for
caution that brings us to our next question our viewer lisa asks on twitter should i contribute to 401k plan as well roth ira? i think people get a little overwhelmed. which where, how many. that's a great question. 401k are pretax if you have tax problem, always use your 4 ou 1 k first. fill any extra money after that put into a roth. that's tax free for the future. >> okay. but you're saying 401k first. 401k first. build it first take tax advantages of 401k. and do roth second. good to do both. but in that order. >> and something you told me when we first met is no matter how much you can put into that 401k even if it seems minimal start doing it because of the habit? >> it builds good habit patterns start saving pay yourself first and build a habit pattern for the future. pay yourself first. that's big advice you have to take it out so you this realize you're even missing it. correct before you can spend it
oits out budget. never even there. lucy asks on facebook she says i know no state taxes being deducted from my pay presently in florida sop does this mean retirement income or pension is also not taxed that's a great question the answer is yes no state tax in florida so your pensions your income and retirement income are not taxed by the state of florida. they are taxed by the federal government though. right. so wherever she moves, if she goes. i mean who wants to retire anywhere else but here, right? especially this time of year this is nothing better than florida this time of year. she also wanted to know if seniors permanent residents are entitled to any particular amount of homestead exceptions. okay homestead doesn't matter if you're retired or not. florida residents can apply for homestead whether you're working at any age. so it doesn't matter if you're retired. okay. finally this is really gets to heart of matter she asks what are most crucial questions to ask one's self prior to retirement? >> that great question. listen i love that one.
retirement think about how want to live in retirement are you going to travel? are you going to play golf? what do you want to do? then you have to think about how much do i need to support that then we have to build at plan that allows you to live your dream retirement should fun you worked hard to get there. but make sure you have a good visualization of what you're trying to create then we have a plan in place so that allows you to live this kind of dream retirement if you will to live xhvr ability maintain your cost of living and achieve those things you maybe thank you so much for coming back on with us this morning. my pleasure, thanks for having me. back over to you. there you go. thank you sorboni. now you can retire. >> okay. that will be it then. thank you sorboni for that. and charley what's going on? drops mic walks offset. that was it, almost. not quite. not quite yet. >> hey look at this, look at this beautiful piece that was on
