Listen To The Story

For our all-things-seniors episode, we tackle some burning questions for the over-50 set. Jill Schlesinger of CBS MoneyWatch answers questions on the particulars of buying savings bonds for grand and godchildren, what to do if you absolutely need to break into your 401(k) and how to approach parents about their estate. Jill gives a checklist on what financial information needs to be accounted for and how to broach the difficult combination of death and money with your parents.

Take a listen!
