Retirement Planning

Where will your retirement money come from? If you’re like most people, qualified-retirement plans, Social Security and personal savings and investments are expected to play a role. Every hard worker’s dream is to have comfortable, stable, and secure retirement years. And now because we will likely live much longer, healthier lives, we can expect to spend more time in retirement than our parents and grandparents did. Once you have estimated the amount of money you may need for retirement, a reliable approach involves taking a close look at your potential retirement-income sources.

Retirement Planning is financial planning for the spending years versus the accumulation years. The emphasis you should place on retirement planning does change throughout different life stages, so it’s important to work with a trusted financial professional that will help you map out your long-term goals and adjust your retirement plan if any major life events occur. When you plan your finances and lifestyle choices, it becomes much more likely to achieve that dream of a secure and happy retirement. We can help you build wealth, minimize market losses, protect your principal, and generate retirement income you can’t outlive.

We can help guide you along the path to—and through—retirement. No matter where you are in life, we can provide guidance, tools, and services to help you prepare for retirement on your terms.

Social Security Optimization

Your Social Security retirement benefit represents a lifetime’s worth of savings, time and work. Although many Americans are familiar with the basics of Social Security, few are able to figure out exactly the best way to file, so they can get the most out of all they have put in.

We can help you understand your Social Security benefits and educate you on how you can maximize those benefits. For example, delayed filing for Social Security can potentially increase your benefit amount by a rate of eight percent per year.1

We will help you get the highest amount possible to help you achieve a secure and enjoyable retirement.

Estate Planning

Effective estate management enables you to manage your affairs during your lifetime and control the distribution of your wealth after death. An effective estate plan can spell out your healthcare wishes and ensure they’re carried out – even if you are unable to communicate. An effective plan can even designate someone to manage your financial affairs, should you be unable to do so.

It’s never too early to begin thinking about your legacy or to shape your estate plan. Contrary to what many people think, you don’t need to be a millionaire to have an estate plan. An estate plan is an important part of any ongoing financial planning process.

Your legacy transcends money — it also encompasses your values. Your wishes and dreams may include using your assets to help secure your family’s future or you may choose to support another cause close to your heart. This might be your favorite charity, your community or your place of worship, to name a few.

We can help you design a legacy consistent with your dreams and values. Estate planning is critical to ensure that your family receives the assets you have accumulated during your life. Regardless of how much money you have, we feel estate planning is the best way to protect the financial interests of your family when you are no longer here to do so.
