We’ve seen many diverse situations where we can help and our experience is important to making those decisions.

Pre-Retirement Planning

  • Retirement income Planning. Will you have enough inflation adjusted income to maintain a gracious and sustainable lifestyle through your entire life? We can run the financial projections to make certain you’re on track.
  • Do you have a 401k, 403B, 457 or other retirement plan? We can review your plan to see if your fund selections and investments are appropriate for your current and future goals.
  • Investing for the future: Start planning now to ensure that you are investing in the right places and saving enough. Let us run an analysis. Should you open a Roth IRA, IRA or retirement plan?
  • Orphaned 401K: Do you have a 401K, 403B or similar plan from a former employer that isn’t getting the attention it deserves. Let’s talk about whether it makes sense to consolidate them and implement an overall investment strategy.

Retirement Decisions

  • Social Security claiming strategies. When and how do you starting collecting benefits. This is a vital choice you will need to make. As you know, taking it early significantly reduces your benefits while waiting past full retirement age significantly increases your monthly check.
  • Healthcare in retirement. If you retire before Medicare eligibility, will your employer cover you? When do you sign up for Medicare?
  • Employer Pension: Do you take a monthly check or do you roll a lump sum into an IRA? We can help you to make an informed decision.
  • Medical power of attorney, healthcare directives. What happens in specific situations and who makes the decisions? Family member, corporate trustee-guardian, trusted friend?
  • Long term care. Who takes care of you if you need some help? Do you have the assets to self-fund? How does this affect your family, spouse or partner? Should you own long term care insurance or acquire similar protection?

Other Important Planning

  • Educational funding. Do you have a plan to fund education for children or grandchildren? We can help structure your plan.
  • Estate planning review. Are your will & beneficiary designations up to date?
  • Multi-generational planning. Everyone from grandparents to great grandchildren. Sometimes we can open a discussion where a family member might be reluctant to bring up a sensitive topic.
  • Traditional and non-traditional families, blended families, single individuals. We can help work out the specific issues that are important to you. It’s your life and we are here to assist you!
  • We coordinate with your other tax and legal advisors to craft a plan that works for you.
  • State of domicile: A primary residence in a low income tax state or no income tax state can make a significant difference in your net income.
  • Asset protection: Correct titling of your home, business or investment accounts can help protect you from liability. Do you have an umbrella policy?
