Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) are teaming up to sponsor Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days. On Friday, January 22 and Tuesday, January 26 from 9 am to 6 pm Eastern Time, NAPFA members across the country will be standing by to answer consumers' financial questions by phone or online. Normally these fee-only planners, well versed in investments, taxes, insurance, estate planning, and saving for college and retirement, charge clients $150 to $300 an hour. But during Jump-Start Days their expertise is free. Just dial toll-free 888-919-2345 or log on to http://www.kiplinger.com/links/jumpstart/ to participate in an online discussion with an advisor. "Month after month, we offer our readers solid advice on how to manage and invest their money," says Kiplinger's Personal Finance editor Janet Bodnar. "We are delighted to be able to go the extra mile by providing one-on-one financial advice through our partners at NAPFA during our annual Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days." Now in its ninth year, the event has helped thousands of consumers receive personalized advice since its inception in 2001. "Volunteer advisors from across the country are prepared to help as many people as possible during these challenging times," says NAPFA chief executive officer Ellen Turf.
