Mom’s Maiden Name? The Right Way to Answer Security Questions and More Online Safety Advice

After Yahoo’s record-setting security breach, it’s time to get smarter about account logins By Nathan Olivarez-Giles 12/15/16, The Wall Street Journal. Anyone can guess the answers to typical security questions.  

What to do instead: "You can spell the answer backward. You can write the answer in a different language. You can write the answer in the form of a question. Consider adding symbols (such as a #, $ or % character) or a capital letter at the beginning and end of answers, or in place of spaces." Sachin Kansal, computer security expert.

  1. Every investment product has some sort of investment management cost associated with it – even so-called “no load” mutual funds inside retirement plans. These management fees vary widely and can range from a few basis points (fractions of a percent) to nearly 2 percent per year. This management fee is deducted from your account’s return every year. You don’t see it, but you do pay it by a reduction in return.
    When Trilogy Wealth Advisors manages money for a fee based on the asset value, we use low-cost index funds called Exchange Traded Funds or ETFs. These are very low cost index funds that have internal management fees ranging from as low as 0.09% to 0.60%. The average cost is about 0.30%. When we add our fee for managing qualified retirement plan money, the total cost is often very competitive when compared to the rate currently paid inside a typical 401k plan.
    We feel that the value of our full financial planning and investment advice is a valuable and worthwhile option – especially when you can get it for a price similar to what you now pay to self-direct your 401k. Why not get professional help with the investment that, next to your home, is probably the largest financial asset you own?
