I went to see an Edward Jones financial advisor this morning. His office is on my delivery route and he has been asking me to come in for a consultation for some time now. We spent the morning discussing my goals for retirement and what we need to do in the next 7 years to get there and to ensure that I have the funds to enjoy my retirement. I mentioned Dave Ramsey and he told me that he was also a disciple. I have some paperwork to complete and have another meeting Thursday morning. I think that I have a pretty good handle on my finances but will be curious to see if a professional shares my opinion. I started this thread to see if anyone here has dealt with Edward Jones and, if so, what was your opinion of that interaction. Would you recommend Edward Jones to a friend or co-worker? BTW, I told him of my strategy of increasing the number of withholdings on my W-4 whenever I increase the % that I contribute to my 401k and he told me that it makes a lot of sense.
