In response to “Advisors: Skype your way to success”
Skype does not work as well as people are led to believe. I had an account with them for several years. They do not have a toll-free number for tech support, and they are very, very slow in responding to email requests for help. During the past two weeks, I’ve had nothing but problems with them even after sending them a dozen emails asking for help. It took them seven days to respond to my last one. It’s wrong that they do not have more support options. Skype does offer support if you are on a month-to-month plan. But if you are only a pay-as-you-go customer, forget it. Use a land line or smart phone.
In response to “Ed Slott on the most common IRA mistake”
I had a cousin who passed away. She had six grown children. At some point she took all but the youngest two out of the will. She had talked about changing it back but never got around to it. She was quite healthy for a woman in her early 70s till one Sunday afternoon. She ended up in the hospital and less than a week later she died. When the will was read there was a large rift between the youngest two and the oldest four. It still has not totally been healed.
