  1. The Stock Market During an Election Year with Guest Jake DeKinder Joe Allaria 22:47

The 2024 presidential election has caused many investors to wonder if they should be doing anything differently.

In Episode #28 of the Retirement Power Hour, Joe Allaria, CFP®, talks with Jake DeKinder, Head of Client Communications and Vice President at Dimensional Fund Advisors, about what the stock market has done in the past during election years and if the 2024 election year is different.

Listener Question
I am trying to get information on spousal benefits and just watched your episode 12, excellent presentation. My husband is 73 and began taking SS benefits at full Retirement age. I am now 66 and eligible for my own full Retirement benefit, but a financial advisor recommended Filing for the spousal benefit until switching to my own (higher) benefit at age 70. Do we both need to be born before 1953 for me to have this option? If you can answer, that would be so helpful since it is very difficult to get an appointment with SSA
