In this episode of The Retirement Matters Show, KY State Senator, Max Wise sits down with Dale to discuss the integrity of the Kentucky Retirement and Pension System. Their conversation was recorded on Friday 12/10/2021, and was set to air across the state on Saturday morning, 12/11/2021. However, later that evening Kentucky experienced one of the worst tornado outbreak in the state's history. That next morning, Saturday morning, almost every station across the southern portions of Kentucky were carrying live coverage of the devastation and coordinating emergency efforts to rescue the victims of these terrible storms. As a result, both Dale and Max decided it would be best if the show was postponed and replayed the following weekend. You are about to hear a very informative conversation about the integrity of the Kentucky State Pension systems. Dale and Max deep dive into how the problems were created, but most importantly, how Senator wise sees them being fixed. Some of the questions that Dale asks Max in this show include: How do you view a piece of legislation that will impact someone's pocketbook? How are we trying to fix the Kentucky Pension system? Do you have confidence in the Pension system getting fixed? Has Kentucky ever considered moving away from income tax? From a Politicians point of view, what is your opinion on social security?
