What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, June 2, 2017:

So what are your strategies for retirement?  If you're like most people, you're counting on a 401(k), IRA or other tax-deferred savings and of course, Social Security to supplement what you've saved.  But what about other savings and investments?  And have you thought about the taxes once you withdraw from those tax-deferred accounts?  There's a reason they're called tax-deferred.

Nationally renowned Certified Financial Planner Rick Rodgers of Rodgers & Associates in Lancaster, has written a new book called Don't Retire Broke -- An Indispensable Guide to Tax-Efficient Retirement Planning and Financial Freedom.  The book follows what Rodgers calls his "three-legged" approach to retirement and also describes other facets of living well financially.

Rick Rodgers appears on Friday's Smart Talk to discuss retirement strategies.

Also, travel in and near York this weekend and you'll see some of the hottest and most iconic cars and trucks in one place anywhere in the country.  The 44th annual Street Rod Nationals East begins Friday and runs through Sunday in York. 

Visitors can see the pre-1987 vehicles at the York Expo Center at the York Fairgrounds all weekend but a hundred of them will parade down Market Street in downtown York around noon Friday.  The Street Rod Nationals bring a big boost to York's economy too.

Joining us on Friday's program are Jim Rowlett, Marketing Director and Chaplain for the National Street Rod Association and Anne Druck, President, York County Convention and Visitor's Bureau.


- My grandfather always told me growing up to open a Roth IRA, but I've failed to do so. I do plan on starting, but I don't know the rules regarding them. What times pertain to Roth IRAs? I don't want to be like my mother who didn't start saving for her retirement until she turned fifty.    - Alex

- I am leaving my first job to go back to school full time. When i leave my job is there anything i should do with my 401k?  Any advice with student loans to pay attention to?     - Kayla
