Retirement plans and divorce

South Carolina Business Review
SC Public Radio

Retirement plans can sometimes be very confusing, maybe because there are so many types that involve a myriad of tax laws. Our next guest says that marriage and divorce can add even more complicating factors. Mike Switzer interviews Stephanie Vokral, a certified financial planner and a certified divorce financial analyst with the Financial Knot in Columbia, SC.

(This is a repeat of a previous episode which originally aired on Oct. 5, 2021)

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
