Dough Roller Blog: Blooom Helps Your 401k for $10 a Month

CEO and Co-Founder Chris Costello appears on Rob Berger’s Dough Roller Blog “The Money Podcast” to discuss how blooom helps people manage their workplace retirement accounts. Whether it’s a 401k, 403b or T.S.P., we automate the process of selecting and rebalancing your investments.

In the interview, Chris gives an update on recent pricing changes and service offering enhancements at blooom. First, Chris discusses the reasons for the shift toward the low, flat rate of $10 a month.

In addition to the retirement account automation, we also now offer financial planning advice to our clients. They can chat with a representative with financial questions or important decisions. Chris and Rob discuss the feature and how the reasons for blooom’s founding helped shape the advice service offering. Regardless of whether it’s tough choices when saving for a college or deciding on a home purchase or refinance, we can help.

They discuss everything from asset allocation to zero coupon bonds, from savings yields to real estate investing, and from raising financially fit kids to raising financially fit parents (yes, even our parents need raising now and again–at least mine do).
