Mills Way Rules

Pension Qualify Time

Pensions aren’t as common as they were back when my Dad was working at International Harvester. They made Farm Equipment there in Rock Island, IL. They had a Union there which my Dad was a Shop Steward for the Union. They also had a Pension and Health Care for life for Mom and Dad. Pretty good deal. I am going by what he told me I never read all the details of it.

Retirement Withdraw Plan

Many people I have talked to said one of the things they worry about is running out of money during their retirement years. I have those worries also myself. The more studies that I read about and people I talk to that withdrew 4% of their retirement funds and it worked out for them gives me a calming feeling.

Take Care of Your Health

We teach our boys that if they don’t take care of their health now, they could be paying for it in the future. Choices and Consequences from their actions now. It can affect their Financial Freedom plans they may have.

Protect Yourself from Scams and Fraud

We get phone calls, emails and texts daily at our house of people trying to get our information or to scam us. Everything from someone in England that died and left us 8.5 million dollars to call this number right away or the IRS will be taking you to court.

Checking Accounts and One for Home Bills, Debt and Investing

Darlene and myself have many different checking accounts from Personal Accounts to Business Accounts. We teach our boys to have separate personal checking accounts if they are married or in a relationship. Also, we suggest they set up one checking account for each of the following; Home Bills, Debt Payments, investing to other accounts if needed.
