Kiplinger’s personal finance magazine is teaming up with the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors to offer free financial advice to people across the country today. Known as Kiplinger’s Jump-Start Your Retirement Plan Day, NAFPA members across the U.S. will be standing by to answer your call-in questions about your finances for free.

Phone lines are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. EST today.

These professional finance experts typically charge between $100 to $250 an hour. Their knowledge of investments, taxes, insurance, estate planning and saving for college and retirement can help you out today, though, for free.

To get in contact with a NAFPA financial planner, call (888) 919-2345 today between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST.

Kiplinger’s is smart to point out that it is helpful if you have relevant document on hand when you call in, like your 401(k) statement with your menu of investment options.

“These are frightening times for investors, but it’s important to take a long-term view and to make decisions based on facts, not emotions,” said Kiplinger’s editor Janet Bodnar.

“Volunteer advisers from across the country are prepared to help as many people as possible during these unsettled times,” said NAPFA chief executive officer Ellen Turf. “Our members can share their insight and expertise with individuals whose financial futures are at stake.”
