H&FF Radio reviews estate planning, loans to adult children
WASHINGTON (1/14/13)--Sunday's H&FF Radio suggested a fresh start for the new year, and reviewed asset protection management and whether you should lend money to your kids.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, featured Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussing these topics with special guests:

  • "Happy, Healthy New Year." Marianne McGinnis, editor, Prevention Magazine, San Diego, exhorted listeners to avoid making resolutions they can't keep. Instead, she suggested viewing the new year as a fresh start and striving for a lifestyle of healthy eating habits and better financial choices.
  • "Active Asset Protection Planning." Jeffrey Matsen, author of "The Ladder of Success, An Asset Protection Planning Primer" and an attorney at Bohn, Matsen, Kegel & Aguilera LLP, Costa Mesa, Calif., discussed the importance of estate planning and asset protection management.
  • "Before You Give Your Kid a Loan." Frank Jaffee, a certified financial planner at Access Wealth Planning, Roseland, N.J., revealed the three questions baby boomers should ask their young-adult children before granting them loans.
