It's the Worst $ to leave your Kids


The worst money? It's the qualified money - your IRA$, your 401k$, your RMD$. What were you saving that $ for? You're supposed to be spending that money. Where can you get the most amount of money after taxes and have it last forever? Don't just take your RMDs and pay the tax. Why not receive your full RMD before tax and let your guaranteed income for life pay the tax? The kids are always going to get whatever is left over after you leave this world.
