I Tommy Tucker six when he five talking about inheritance is in baby boomers and millennial engine axes and Cathy Weatherford president CEO of the insured retirement institute do you know at the next group is and I mean as seriously coming up with what they were. Well right now and I'm sure somebody could create artwork well but with the board -- with the bank for them to be an opportunity for a. Tell me -- welcome. Parents and and inheritance is and it is it changing because people are banking and that decision well it's not important because I don't have it. Well we certainly that. All of the statistics. That everyone gathered -- To restart like ours awards through. You know I think. Government labor statistics and making false statistics that Becky. American there. Woefully under. Full retirement. -- I think that and the recession really wasn't that -- war. A lot of people in preparing for retirement -- interest rates again. Even that may have been waiting. You know they're not getting a bid to return on writing and being rewarded. We knew we could return so yes I think -- probably are back into it. You know that the attitude that -- bad -- either and may not be able to leave and here at war. But that's just horrible for him anymore that the goal is intact injured well. You know I think it it their all -- the new. Equation for war. All of us what I believe it and that you know what you know what age and I actually retire we kept at all. You know long term numbers have that is that around. America that you -- -- our ultimate 65 is the real retire. And I don't think that's true anymore either making me. They're at work you and seventies here today so it can retire it let them. Questioned -- -- there and then -- -- At the good news is that the longer. And any other generation that they want to take and year end. And so they're going to be you know people on retirement. For them. But the bad news I'm guessing -- like junior inheritance. To them with every every day that there are a lot and I don't mean that. Nasty blades I mean a financial reality is enough. It is the reality that we you know we actually need greater resource than retirement because health care -- Increased. As we age. And you know living -- You know it modification of our -- -- Other things that we need to. You know which have long term care. Four for many people are saying and they're staged and yet I think that. That. You know that that that's probably part of the problem back. Have all Tripoli obviously candidate -- of course you know every time. Has that -- If it out of you you know that will probably eat what is laugh -- -- and Eric said because that. You know end.

You know the patriots are she's. Children and grandchildren and even at the -- -- under short. -- a day and you know as yet a couple more minutes of like to talk about this only come back to him the Specter of reverse mortgages which is basically. The bank's loan and your parents money to pay for their retirement. And actually give parents are slowly selling the house to them while you come over for Sunday dinner accurate. Yet that I think it it's that -- -- laugh line yeah. If you have no more money and that could be activated her but it is sheer lack. And answer that he's happy picture. Yet a couple of minutes hang on. Ice over Americans don't have enough money for retirement let alone leave an inherently an inheritance but yet. The debt -- as it relates to this state sometimes becomes a campaign issue and a talking point for people. That are very conservative getting myself as fiscally conservative but I believe that kicks in at five. Five point three million dollars somewhere along those lines and it just amuses me now. Everybody gets themselves all riled up about the death tax and and it's not about Republicans and Democrats win. Maybe we should now be worried about -- dog food in my unique -- time for the LO the ol' Roy. 630 and your calls when we come back at T six culminates at any toll free 866. In 89087.
