What We Do For Clients

 

RETIREMENT SAVINGS

Retirement planning is the process of determining retirement income goals, and the actions and decisions necessary to achieve those goals. Retirement planning includes identifying sources of income, sizing up expenses, implementing a savings program, and managing assets and risk. Future cash flows are estimated to gauge whether the retirement income goal will be achieved.

TAX-FREE LIFETIME INCOME

Creating an income plan to last throughout retirement is perhaps the single most important challenge retirees will face. It’s very likely to spend 30 years or more living in retirement without earned income.

We create a customized retirement income plan, encompassing all sources of income, for each one of our clients and no two plans are exactly alike. Let us get to work on a plan for you.

 

ASSET PROTECTION

Retirement doesn’t mean that it’s time to stop growing. Same holds true for your money. It should mean, however, that it’s time to stop taking unnecessary risk.

We specialize in helping retirees protect their retirement assets while continuing to move forward.

CRITICAL ILLNESS/INJURY COVERAGE

Critical Illness insurance, also referred to as Critical Care insurance or Critical Illness coverage, provides a lump-sum cash benefit to help cover expenses associated with a qualifying serious illness.

Critical Illness can strike at any time. We’ve all heard stories of friends or family members who have been affected by a serious illness. What we don’t hear is how the financial strain may also have a major impact during this trying time.

 

LONG-TERM CARE

Long-term care/extended care costs have gone up substantially in the last 10 years. Unfortunately, the statistics are not in our favor, a plan to address these costs should be included in every retirement strategy.

The good news is we work with hybrid insurance plans that leverage your dollar in case you need it for extended care, but remain 100% accessible for withdrawal if you don’t.

COLLEGE SAVINGS PLAN

A 529 plan is an investment account that offers tax benefits when used to pay for qualified education expenses for a designated beneficiary. You can use a 529 plan to pay for college, K-12 tuition, apprenticeship programs and student loan repayments. If using a 529 plan to save for college, your savings will have a minimal impact on financial aid eligibility.

 

ANNUITIES

In its most general sense, an annuity is an agreement for one person or organization to pay another a stream or series of payments. Usually the term “annuity” relates to a contract between you and a life insurance company, but a charity or a trust can take the place of the insurance company.

401 (k) and IRA

401K 403B and IRA rollover: Nothing can beat company participation. If your employer contributes, MAX THEIR CONTRIBUTION EVERY YEAR. Whatever overage your contributing beyond the matching amount, you need to speak with us today as you may not be maximizing potential earnings.

 

TAX-SMART INVESTMENTS

Tax-smart investments include tax-managed mutual funds, whose managers work deliberately and actively for tax efficiency, as well as index funds and exchange-traded funds that passively track long-term investments in a target index.

LIFE INSURANCE

Life insurance may be one of the most important purchases you'll ever make. In the event of a tragedy, life insurance proceeds can help pay the bills, continue a family business, finance future needs like your children's education, protect your spouse's retirement plans, and much more. If you're considering securing you and your family’s financial future, we would be happy to review your current situation and offer a few ideas on how you can protect it!

 

BURIAL EXPENSE

Loans, credit card debt, estate costs, the funeral... most people leave behind unpaid expenses when they die, expenses that, if left unattended, burden their families tremendously. Final expense coverage is life insurance that pays off these debts, ensuring that everything will be taken care of if you pass.

FAMILY LEGACY PLANNING

Many of our clients want to leave a legacy for their children and grandchildren and are shocked to learn how easy it is to double, even triple their inheritance – TAX-FREE AND GUARANTEED!

We also work with our clients and help them embrace their own mortality and be prepared for the loss of a spouse and the income burdens this can often create.
