People have lots to worry about these days. At the top of this list is your health and the health of your family.  For many, next on the list of worries is finances. Particularly for those nearing or already in retirement, the risks and uncertainty in the economy have rightfully caused people to question their finances and to wonder if they are still in a secure position for the future.  Furthermore, there have been significant changes to legislation, including the recently introduced CARES Act and House passed HEROES Act.
