The Dime Roll: Ghouls, Goblins, and Life Insurance

October 13, 2017

We clearly can't get enough of Halloween over here at The Dime, because lo and behold, we've got yet another reference to everyone's favorite scary holiday—but this time, it comes with a side of...life insurance? Yep, we're taking inspiration from Halloween's obsession with death, and opening up a conversation about something that most peeps don't know very much about, and don't really care to discuss, either. If you're getting a little inspired to learn about life insurance and whether or not you may want or need it, go ahead and click here to learn more.

Once you've done that, hop on over here to check out our guide to the best leaf peeping jaunts from Denver to get your Aspen gold fix, and, you know...get your mind off of the whole death idea. You gotta hurry, though: the fall foliage clock is ticking. 

Lastly, we'd be remiss if we didn't tell you that next week is National Retirement Security Week. Sponsored by The National Association of Government  Defined Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA), #NRSW17 is a national effort to raise public awareness about the importance of saving for retirement, and provide an opportunity for all of us to reflect on our personal retirement goals. Over the course of the week, we here at The Dime will be sharing bite-sized nuggets of information on Facebook and Twitter, but if you really want to delve into the topic, check out the wealth of tips and resources NAGDCA has put together to guide you through your retirement savings journey

Are you a diehard Dimer? If so, we'd love for you to pass us along to your friends and family (dogs and grandmas included). We also love hearing from our readers, so hit us up on Facebook and Twitter if you've got something to share. (C'mon...you know you want to.)
