185: Finances in the Great White North
The Canadian financial system is similar but not quite the same as the U.S. financial system. In this episode we talk about the Canadian retirement system, the programs they have similar to the U.S. social security system. We discuss their versions of our Traditional and Roth IRA accounts. Considering our close proximity to each other, it is no surprise that a couple of listeners have questions about working in one country and living in another as well as Americans married to Canadians and what to do about citizenship. We cover the pros and cons of those situations in this episode. For those with no connection to the Great White North we also answer other questions about separately managed accounts, over-contributing to the 457(b), marketing timing in the de-cumulation phase, UTMA accounts, and the CARES Act tax deductible student loan payment.
