A Few Examples of How We Help Clients

How much will you need to retire -- after taxes? We offer a planning analysis to help you set your sights on a successful retirement. With all of the factors that can impact your retirement, we can identify an amount of money that you should strive to amass in order to meet your goal lifestyle.

Strategies to Avoid Unnecessary Taxes. We can identify and minimize taxes on your hard-saved retirement assets. Why pay more taxes than you have to? 

Lifetime Income planning. We specialize in strategies that provide lifetime income. Depending on your specific situation, we can share a few plays out of our playbook that will let your retirement last indefinitely.

Life Insurance Policy Review. A high percentage of our new clients have life insurance products that have not been reviewed for many years, and due to prolonged low interest rates, often the policies are underperforming. Also, many times we find that policies are not structured for maximum tax efficiency. We offer a complimentary review to assess if your existing plans are on track.

Beneficiary Audit. We are constantly surprised how many of our new clients have IRA accounts, annuities and life insurance policies with outdated beneficiary designations. We make it a point to review all of our clients' beneficiary designations to avoid unexpected planning blunders.

Business Value Estimate. Many of our clients are business owners and they do not know what their business is worth. We can help with a low cost business value estimate report that allows us to plan properly.
