Avoiding Sales Calls

Tired of calls from strangers trying to sell you something? Bothered by shady characters offering deals that are too good to be true? You can’t eliminate unwanted calls completely, but you can reduce the number your receive.

Stay Safe. Be Informed.

  • Sign up for the national “do not call” registry. It’s easy and it’s free! Call (888) 382-1222, TTY (866) 290-4326 from the phone number you want to register. Unfortunately, registering by phone may not work if you live in a residential complex that uses a PBX phone system. But you can also register online at The “do not call” system will send a response to that address with a link that must be clicked on within 72 hours to complete the registration.

  • Your registration will not expire.  Telephone numbers on the registry will only be removed when they are disconnected and reassigned, or when the consumer chooses to remove a number from the registry. You can confirm that a number is on the registry and the registration date through the toll-free number or Web site. If your number changes or is disconnected, you’ll need to re-register. You can also take the phone number off the “do not call” registry anytime via the toll-free number or Web site.

  • Some callers aren’t covered. Nonprofit groups, charities, political organizations, and survey companies don’t have to use the national “do not call” list. But when charities use professional fundraisers to call, they must honor your request not to call again.

  • Some companies can still call you. Even if your number is on the registry, companies can call if: you purchased something from them or made a payment within the previous 18 months; you asked about a product or service or submitted an application in the past 3 months; or you have a “personal relationship” as a friend, relative or acquaintance. But you always have the right to tell them not to call again.

  • Be careful what you sign. Companies can also call with your written permission, so look at contracts, order forms, contest entry forms, and other things you sign carefully to make sure you’re not agreeing to be called without realizing it. You can withdraw consent anytime by saying, “don’t call me again.”

  • It may take a while to notice fewer calls. Telemarketers check the national “do not call” registry every 31 days, so it may take that long before your number is removed from their calling lists.

  • If your number is on a state “do not call” list, it may also be on the national registry. Not all states have their own “do not call” lists, but some that do are transferring the numbers on their lists to the national registry, others aren’t. The “do not call” Web site has information about how specific state “do not call” laws relate to the national registry.

  • If you don’t sign up for the national “do not call” registry, you still have rights. You can tell companies not to call you again on a case-by-case basis. Keep a record of their names and the dates of your requests.

  • Enforce your rights. If telemarketers ignore the fact that your number is on the registry or your request not to call again, report them through the “do not call” toll-free number or Web site. If telemarketers violate your federal “do not call” rights you may file a claim for $500 per violation (the court can triple that amount if the company knowingly broke the law). Note their names and the dates of the calls.

Jillian recently joined the Mainstreet team to enhance our financial literacy program for local schools in the community. Mainstreet Credit Union sponsors this programs so teachers are able to access age-specific curriculum and materials they need at no cost to them.

"Recently, I gave presentations to two middle school classes in Lawrence about Budgeting Basics and the 50/30/20 Rule. It's a great way to be involved in the community while also educating and setting these kids up for lifelong financial success!"

Amid the 1,650-page, $1.7 trillion omnibus spending legislation recently passed by Congress were several provisions affecting work-sponsored retirement plans and, to a lesser degree, IRAs. Dubbed the SECURE Act 2.0, the legislation is designed to improve the current and future state of retiree income in the United States.

What Does the Legislation Do?

The following is a brief summary of some of the most notable initiatives. All provisions take effect in 2024 unless otherwise noted.

  • Later age for required minimum distributions (RMDs). SECURE 2.0 raises that age again to 73 beginning in 2023 and 75 in 2033.
  • Reduction in the RMD excise tax. Current law requires those who fail to take their full RMD by the deadline to pay a tax of 50% of the amount not taken. The new law reduces that tax amount to 25% in 2023.
  • No RMDs from Roth 401(k) accounts.
  • Higher limits and looser restrictions on qualified charitable distributions from IRAs.
  • Higher catch-up contributions.
  • Roth matching contributions. The new law permits employer matches to be made to Roth accounts.
  • Automatic enrollment and automatic saving increases. Beginning in 2025, the Act requires most new work-sponsored plans to automatically enroll employees with contribution levels between 3% and 10% of income.
  • Emergency savings accounts. The legislation includes measures that permit employers to automatically enroll non-highly compensated workers into emergency savings accounts.
  • Matching contributions for qualified student loan repayments.
  • 529 rollovers to Roth IRAs.
  • New exceptions to the 10% early-withdrawal penalty.
  • Low- and moderate-income savers currently benefit from a tax credit of up to $1,000 ($2,000 for married couples filing jointly) for saving in a retirement account. Beginning in 2027, the credit is re-designated as a match that will generally be contributed directly into an individual's retirement account.
  • More part-time employees can participate in retirement plans.
  • Rules for lifetime income products in retirement plans.
  • Retirement savings lost and found. The Act directs the Treasury to establish a searchable database for lost 401(k) plan accounts within two years after the date of the legislation's enactment.
  • Military spouses. Small businesses that provide immediate enrollment and vesting to military spouses in an eligible retirement savings plan will qualify for new tax credits. This provision takes effect immediately.
