WE ARE ACTUALLY WATCHING THE SYSTEM THAT IS OFF TO THE EAST THAT IS KIND OF SITTING AND STAYING PUT. NOT HAVING THE MOVEMENTHA TT THE MODELS WERE ORIGINALLY SHOWING.

SUN DEVILS STARTING OFF PACK 12 L AY WITH A DOMINANT 35-13 WIN BUT THINGS ARE ONLY GOING TO GET TOUGHER FROM HERE.

ASU IS HEADED TO LOS ANGESEL TO FACE NUMBER 24UCLA. BRUINS, WHOEVER WSIN CONTROLS THEIR DESTINY IN THE PACK 12 SOUTH. NOW, THE WILDCATS DIDN'T HAVE MUCH FUN LAST NIGHT.

THAT'S ALL AHEAD WHEN WE GO OVER OUR NATIONAL HEADLINES THIS MORNING. >> BUT FIRST, WHAT ARE YOUR RETIREMENT GOALS? WE HAVE AN EXPERT TO SHOW YOU HOW YOU CAN TURN YOUR DREAM INTO A REALITY. WAKING UP ON THIS CLOUDY SUNDAY MORNING, STAY WITH US.

ARIZONA. >>> LOCAL FINANCIAL PROFESSIONAL IS JOINING US TO TALK ABOUT HOW TO MAKE THE DREAM RETIREMENT A REALITY. GOOD MORNING. >> GOOD MORNING, NOHE. >> WHAT ARE SOME OTHER THINGS PEOPLE NEED TO BE CONSIDERING WHEN THEY LOOK AT WHERE TO RETIRE? >>HE T BIG THING YOU WANT TO LOOK AT IS IT'S GOING TO MEET ALL OF YOUR NES.ED SOME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT WANT TO GO GO TO A STATE THAT DOESN'T HAVE STATE INCOME TAX. BUT NO STATE INCOME TAX COULD MEAN HIGHER SALES TAX. IT COULD MEAN HIGHER PROPERTY TAXES. SO YOU CERTAINLY WANT TO LOOK AT THOSE THINGS. ARIZONA IS A GREAT STATE IN THAT WEO D NOT TAX ON SOCIAL SECURITY INCOME.

THERE ARE STASTE OUT THERE THAT DON'T TAX ON A PORTION OR ALL OF SOMEONE'S RETIREMENT PENSIONS. SO YOU REALLY WANT TO LOOK AND MAKE SURE IT'S NOT JUS ATBOUT THE COST OF LIVING AND THE WEATHER BUT YOU WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY AND DO ALL OF THOSE THINGS THAT YOU WANT TO DO. IN RETIREMENT. >> SO WHEN YOU ARE LOOKING A THE A STATE THAT IS IN A TOP 10 FOR PLACES TO RETIRE LIKE ARIZONA, HOW DO WE MAKE THIS BECEOM A REALITY? YOU HAVE FOUR WAYS TO DO THAT. THE FSTIR ONE GET YOUR FREE MONEY? >> GET YOUR FREE MONEY.

WELL, OBVIOUY,SL YOU WANT TO PUT MONEY INTO YOUR 401K. YOU HAVE TO SAVEOR F THAT RETIREMENT. BUT MOST EMPLOYERS ARE GOING TO MATCH SOMEWHERE BETWEEN 3-5% OF WHAT YOU ARE PUTTING IN. EVEN IF YOU ARE NOT AT THAT POINT IN YOUR LIFE WHERE OFF LOT OF EXCESS FUNDS TO PUT IN THE 401K, TAKING ADVANTAGE OF ETH FREE MATCH THE COMPANY GIVES YOU IS GOING TO ADD UP OVER THE YES.AR >> NUMBER 2. AUTOMATE CONTRIBUTIONS. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? >> YOU KNOW, THAT'S HAVING THE MONEY GO DIRECTLY INTO THE 40 IS K FROM YROU PAYCHECK OR INTO YOUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT FROM THE PAYCHECK. IT'S ONE OF THOSE THINGS WE ARE OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND. YOU ALSO HAVE THE ABILITY WITH MOST EMPLOYERS TO SET THAT UP WHERE IT CAN INCREASE OVER TIME SO MAYBE YOU DON'T NOTICE IT ALL AT ONCE. >> AND THEN WE CERTAINLY DON'T WANT TO TAKE TWO STEPS FORWARD, THREE STEPS BACK SO AVOID THE PENALTIES. >> THAT'S RIGHT. SO THE MONEY YOU ARE PUTTING INTO THESE QUALIFIED PLANS, 401K'S, ROTH ACCOUNTS. DO YOU NOT WTAN TO TOUCH THAT MONEY BEFORE YOU GET TO 59.5R O FULL RETIREMENT AGE.

BECAUSE WHAT HAPPENS IS NOT ONLY DO YOU HAVE TO PAY INCOME TAX ON THE MONEY THAT COMES BACK OUT, BUT YOU ARE ALSO GOING TO PAY A 10% IRS PENALTY FOR ACCESSING THOSE FUNDS EARLY. >> AND NUMBER 4, THIS CAN BE HARD BUT WE HAVE TO FOCUS ON THE GOALND A RESIST THE URGE TO SPLURGE. >> YOU WANT TO LIVE WITHIN YOUR MEANS. DON'T EXPECT TO SPEND MORE MONEY IN RETIREMENT THAN YOU ARE SPENDING WHILE YOU ARE WORKING AND EARNING A PAYCHECK. THE OTHER TNGHI IS AVOID BAD DEBT. OBVIOUSLY, MORTGAGES AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE HAVE A DREAM OF HAVING NO MORTGAGE IN RETIREMENT. THAT'S ONE OF THE FEW DEBTS THAT YOU CAN CARRY WITH YOU ESPECIALLY WITH AS LOW AS INTEREST RATES HAVE BEEN BUT YOU WANT TO STAY AWAY FROM CREDIT CARD DEBT AND AGAIN JUST GET YOURSELF A COMFORTABLE, KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SPENDING NOW. KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SPEND LATER ON IF YOU INCREASE YOUR TRAVEL OR GO OUT TO DINNER MORE. JUST MAKE SEUR YOU'VE GOT A BUDGET AND PLAN IN PLACE.

>> AND LAST QUESTION FOR YOU, WHAT IF YOU REALIZE THAT YOU ARE SO CLOSE TO RETIREMENT AND YOU DON'T ACTUALLY HAVE ENOUGH MONEY LIKE YOU THOUGHT? >> WHAT THEY'VE DONE FOR RETIREMENT IS THEY'VE DESIGNED AGE 50 AND OVER HAVE THE ABILITY TO MAKE THE CATCH UP PROVISIONS. IN YOUR 401K YOU CAN PUT INTO $26,000 PER YEAR AND IN IRA'S OR ROTH IRA'S YOU CAN PUT INTO $7,000. YOU WANT TO TIGHTEN YOUR BELT A LITTLE BIT THERE. DOLLARS WILL STRETCH A LITTLE FURTHER IN RETIREMENT BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT PAYING AS MUCH TAXES. YOU ARE NOT CONTRIBUTING TO SOCIAL SECURITY AND MEDICARE AND THOSE THINGS BUT IT IS ABOUT HAVING THE CONCISE PNLA KNOWING WHERE YOU ARE. KNOWING WHERE YOU WANT TO BE.

>>ENED A CERTAINLY THE SOORNE THAT YOU CAN GET THE ADVICE AND GET THE HELP TO GET ON TRACKHE T BETTER IF I HAD KNOWN 10 YEARS AGO WHAT I KNOW NOW THE DIFFERENCE I WTOULD MAKE. BUT THAT'S WHAT YOU GUYS ARE HERE FOR. JED CARLSON, THANK YOU AS ALWAYS FOR THE GUIDANCE. >> THANK YOU, NOHE..
