BY MEDICARE TEAM

***

Important update on COVID-19 vaccine booster shots
If you previously got 2 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine, you can get a booster shot of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine if you fall into one of these groups:

You’re 65 and older,You’re 18+ and have certain underlying medical conditions, or
You’re 18+ and work or live in a high-risk setting.

You can get your booster shot at least 6 months after you complete your second dose of the Pfizer vaccine.
The booster shot can help strengthen and prolong your protection against COVID-19.

Learn More: Visit CDC.gov for more information on other groups already vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine that may be eligible for a booster shot.

Remember: Medicare covers a Pfizer vaccine booster shot at no cost to you.

Oregon says it's ready to provide COVID-19 booster shots to those eligible,  but asks for patience - KTVZ

The FIDUCIARY OATH for “Financial Advisors”

“Will you sign a fiduciary oath?”

PHYSICIAN COLLEAGUES AND MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS ASK

“SIGN IT -OR- FORGET IT”

Asking a “Financial Advisor” if they’re a fiduciary isn’t always enough to hire them. People can “ice skate” around that terminology and give fuzzy or unclear answers to that question. Instead, you may consider asking them to sign a fiduciary oath.

“If someone is fee-only, not “fee-based”, they shouldn’t have a problem signing a document stating how they get compensated.” “If someone is, for example, a broker dealer, insurance agent or investment advisor who works on commissions, they probably wouldn’t be allowed to sign it.” Just say NOT to contract arbitration clauses, too! As well as “Dual Registration”. Remember Bernie Lawrence Madoff.

THE FIDUCIARY OATH

This one-page document outlines five fiduciary principles a financial adviser must follow to put the client’s interests ahead of their own. They include acting with prudence, not misleading the client, avoiding conflicts of interest, and disclosing and managing unavoidable conflicts.

The oath, meant to be printed out and signed by an adviser, has been around for several years. But recent events, such as the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals striking down the DOL rule, have increased the urgency to get it into circulation.

“With the 5th Circuit ruling, it is just so important to have this oath out there because it states fiduciary principles,” said Ms. P. Houlihan, president of Houlihan Financial Resource Group. “The oath is the answer, given that the DOL rule is gone.”
