Getting Personal: College and retirement

Getting Personal

We're answering questions about some of the biggest financial decisions people make in their life: Education and retirement. One father wants to know whether it's better to take out a loan or pull money from his retirement fund to pay for his daughter's education. Another caller is obsessive about saving, but overwhelmed with retirement options. And we check in with a listener who was on the verge of a big life decision when he called us in 2009.
