Make Retirement Planning Your Top New Year's Resolution with Free Financial Advice from Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors during Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days-

Washington, DC (January 3, 2008)—Crumbling housing prices and mounting credit woes sapped the U.S. economy in 2007—and consumers counting on real estate for a retirement nest egg may not receive the profits they anticipated. What better way to kick off 2008 than with a financial check-up.

During two special days this month, consumers can get free, personalized answers to financial questions by picking up the phone or logging on to a computer. For the seventh time, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) are partnering to sponsor Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Days.

On Tuesday, January 15th and Friday, January 25th from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time, NAPFA advisors across the country will be standing by to answer your financial questions. Normally these Fee-Only planners, well versed in investments, taxes, insurance, estate planning, and saving for college and retirement, charge clients $100 to $300 an hour. But, during Jump-Start Days, their expertise is free. Just dial toll-free 888-919-2345 or log on to to participate in an online discussion with an advisor.

"Kiplinger's has been helping readers achieve their financial goals for more than 60 years," says Kiplinger's Personal Finance editor Fred W. Frailey. "Offering free, one-on-one advice at the beginning of the year is a great way to help readers determine if they are on track and to suggest remedies if they are not."

More than 12,000 Kiplinger’s readers received personalized advice during last year’s Jump-Start Days. “Volunteer NAPFA advisors look forward to helping as many people as possible”, says NAPFA chief executive officer Ellen Turf. “It’s incredibly rewarding for them to participate in this effort.”
