A Letter from the editor
As the Editor and Chief of Aging I.Q. News, we focus on education and choices. This idea guides everything we do. We offer financial choices for a range of unexpected circumstances, from illness to estate planning. Something that we hear time and time again from our clients is that they had no idea that the options we are offering even existed.
