26(f) Program

There’s a pitch to invest in what the author calls a 26(f) program. The authors encourages participation before April 10, 2017, when the Federal Government will declare a ”RETIREMENT BLACKOUT”.

Rule #1 – If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

As I closed out my email on ” junk mail ” this morning, an article about 26 F retirement programs caught me eye. I decided to give it a listen which had me tied to my computer longer than I wished to be. Of course the narrator was promoting a sales pitch for a fee booklet of which I refused to get sucked into.

if you listen to the Map Press sales pitch,nowhere do they explain what a 26(f) program is and why it is “special” or “advantaged”. The sales pitch continues to appeal to your greed to get rich quick. All this so you become a member and subscribe to their newsletter at $80/year after the initial low ball rate. The idea is that that get you to build a portfolio based on the newsletter and you have to keep on buying the newsletter to know how to adjust the portfolio based on their buy-sell recommendation.

You can read the sales pitch at http://www.topstocksforum.com/26-f-government-program.html.

If those plans still exist they could indeed be helpful in getting richer over time.

The 26f program seems to have originated with the 190th general Court of the Commonwealth of Massachusettes. It was repealed in 1966,14.Sec 52 Is this a look alike?

I think it’s selling options…not certain, but that looks like the pitch for Jim Fink’s Options for Income….you can sell calls against your holdings…if the strike isn’t met, you keep the premium…if the stock goes over the strike it’s called away. Don’t sell naked options-bad idea, but covered calls can generate additional income and it has little risk other than you might miss some of the upside in your stocks.

This smells like a con job. Probably whole life insurance disguised as an investment.

I got an email from Agora Financial, which gave a link, https://pro.agorafinancial.com/LIR_glitch_1216/LLIRT188/?h=true ,
which seems similar to the topic at hand.
