“These are some of the most challenging times I’ve ever seen in my career as a tax advisor,” said Slott. “Uncle Sam wants your hard-earned savings more than ever, and with ever-changing retirement tax laws, it can be difficult to understand how you and your family are impacted. My goal is for viewers to come away from my special with the knowledge they need to get their own retirement plan, not the government’s plan.”

During the public television special, Slott shares his Four Pillars of Retirement Freedom: freedom from taxes, freedom from worry, freedom from risk, and freedom from bad advice. The special also includes real-life stories about those who planned and those who didn’t to help viewers gain a better understanding of the importance of retirement planning.
