Life Planning Services
Often, clients need services that don’t easily fall into one specific category. Below are just a few of the services clients have come to expect from our firm through their ongoing relationship with us.
Spending Money in Retirement
It is highly unlikely that anyone taught you how to spend your money in retirement. It is one of our firm's greatest strengths. With over 40 years of experience in creating tax-efficient cash flow strategies that incorporate our clients' various sources of income and assets, we are acutely aware of how best to deliver you the money you need to achieve your goals in retirement. While changes in lifestyle, interest rates, economic uncertainty and market volatility can and will impact your ongoing income needs, we continually monitor your accounts while attempting to determine the most appropriate way to provide you with your desired outcomes.
Estate Planning and Wealth Preservation Techniques
We will work directly with your attorney to establish consistency in your objectives. Whether you are looking to leave a legacy to your heirs, protect your wealth from estate taxes or distribute your wealth in manners that align with your values, we can offer solutions. By utilizing sophisticated planning software, we can interactively show you the implications that result from each scenario of your choosing.
Capital Preservation Techniques
As you build your wealth, it is important to craft a safety net for your family, your assets, your health and your legacy. As independent insurance agents we can help you select from among the very best life, disability, and long term care insurance. We will also help you examine your homeowners, automobile and umbrella coverage and work with your existing agent if changes or adjustments are needed.
Tax Planning and Review
We help you plan effectively when it's time to submit your 1040 to the IRS. Throughout the year we run tax planning projections to help you understand the implications of drawing money from various accounts. We also help you consider investment opportunities that could reduce the taxes you might owe. Additionally, we will work with your professional accountant or CPA to scan your return for inconsistencies, review your payroll withholdings, consider whether you've fully utilized tax deductions and more.
Employee Benefits and Company Retirement Plan Analysis
Many of our clients are still employed and as a result, they are faced with making decisions on employee benefits, retirement plan options, cash balance plans, pension selections and more. As part of our comprehensive financial planning services, we continue to provide advice and assistance on these issues.
Major Purchase Decisions
The vast majority of our clients have positive net worths and they generally have more money coming into their household than going out. However, when it comes time to make major financial purchases, they turn to us for our objective advice. Whether it is how best to buy a car, refinance a home, purchase a secondary residence or consider a retirement community, our Financial Professionals, are able to provide you with unbiased options.
