On this episode of Your Retirement Elevated podcast with Scott Dougan, we explain how to examine the health of your wealth. How healthy is your retirement plan?

With a new presidential administration coming in, it’s common to look at the changes that will bring and consider if you’re doing OK financially. We took a look at this topic for an article that will appear in Kiplinger magazine.

“Part of the uncertainty for a lot of people is when we’ve got a new administration coming in, new ideas on how things should be done … that’s what’s making people nervous,” said Scott.

With the new Biden administration, there are talks about more stimulus money and raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour.

“It’s going to be interesting to see what happens if some of these polices are pushed out in the midst of a fragile or recovering economy,” said Scott.
