Bankruptcy Guidance For Those Approaching Retirement
In an ideal world, retirement is supposed to represent your golden years. However, investment losses and the prospect of reduced incomes in retirement present problems for some people in their 50s and 60s. It may seem tempting to pay off high credit card balances or medical debt with funds from your retirement account as you prepare for retirement. But that can be a costly mistake. If you are approaching retirement and have unmanageable debts, Minnillo Law Group Co., LPA, has solutions for you.
