Separate or Joint Checking Accounts?

October 6, 2018

On this edition of MoneyWise, Steve Moore and Rob West discuss whether couples should have separate checking accounts and finances and the Biblical principle of becoming one. 

Then, they answer your questions at (800) 525-7000 and questions@moneywise.org about the following:

  • If you left a job and used the 401(k) from that job to pay your mom’s funeral expenses and your current job does not offer a retirement program, where can you build your retirement savings back up?
  • If you  recently learned of an opportunity to buy a resort, should you consider using your 401(k) for the down payment?
  • If you invested in a variable annuity 14 years ago that's not performing well and managed by a firm that also handles some IRAs for you, what's a good way to simplify all of this?
