I guess my question is what carrier would you use? John Hancock? One America? Voya?

Transamerica or Nationwide

So it’s an existing plan, they want to make you the broker of record, and you’re debating if you should? Why wouldn’t you if it won’t take much of your time?

Take it. Duh. Ungrateful snob.

The question is not should he/she help the client.

The question is what provider can help him/her help the client as not all providers are willing or have the ability.

Ah.. I originally read it wrong. Wholesaler is more astute than me

Of course I want to help. I’m just trying to figure out how. I spoke to One America but they say the plan is too small. It’s currently with MetLife, but I feel like they want to move away from it. It’s currently annuity based with ML.

I’ve never managed a 457. Is it very different than managing a 401k or 403b? Does the fact that it’s a municipality complicate anything?

Depends, do you work with a TPA? Municipalities will likely want a go between and you probably don't want the administrative headaches. Still I'd go for it just as an opportunity to get in front of the employees.


I would, easy plan.

I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?

I’m in love with a guy that I’m not physically attracted to. Attraction is first on my list. He makes me feel warm, happy, and he’s so sweet and nurturing; he reminds me of my mom, who recently passed. He makes me smile. He has really great energy. I know I will cheat on him tho, and that's my problem. I know I’m a problematic loser. I just don't wanna hurt him. What would you do?


In light of all discussions on FB, it seems to me that individuals at our firm have been removed out of EY beyond PIP related issues.

With social security potentially running out, why couldn’t it be an option for the govt to put $5k for every baby that is born in a year into an account Invested in a govt share class S&P 500 fund. Historical average is 10%+, which would provide roughly $2.7 million for a baby born today. Eventually, this would eliminate the need for soc sec tax, and would only cost $18 Billion a year instead of several trillion a year being deposited into the trust.


No pitch, just some research for a client of mine.

Aside from referrals, what is your biggest source of leads?

Physical Mailers?
Radio ads?
Your own radio program?
Something else?

Where do you need the most support in your RP practice?
