Exploring Every Option

"When I retired in 2005, I worked with Fidelity to set up accounts that would work for my wife and I. She died in 2012, and I needed to move to be closer to my grandchildren. The home I had in Georgia didn't give me sufficient funds to buy into the Washington DC area. I worked with my Fidelity Rep who offered some options I wasn't aware of. That, coupled with savings from my other brokerage account, allowed me to buy a home that satisfies all the location issues. I am now enjoying frequent interaction with my son's family and the time with my grandchildren is priceless. Thank you Fidelity."

Making Sense of All Your Options

"I had been married for over 30 years, when I divorced and was suddenly in charge of several 403(b) accounts that I had through my work in different school systems. I began reading everything I could to try and educate myself about how to invest my funds. The more I read, the more I realized that I needed to be very diversified to insulate myself from market volatility. But I realized how complicated diversification really was and that even if I kept reading, I would never know as much as the professionals. So I made an appointment at a Fidelity office … So glad I made that decision!"

- Alice M.

Preparing for the Future

"I set up two accounts when my daughters were born. The oldest is now headed to college, driving a car she selected with half the money she saved and half from her Fidelity account, with money to spare! It made things so easy! My youngest daughter is a 16 year old country singer, songwriter who is now on tour and is using her Fidelity account to fund her music expenses and chase her dreams! She couldn't have done it without Fidelity!"

- Susan W.
