Retirement planning is not as simple as those two words indicate. There are many layers to a comprehensive retirement plan. From assessing your current resources to determining when and how to take your social security benefits, we help you design the right strategy so you can enjoy a stress-free retirement. This strategy takes stock of your retirement income sources and can be used to provide you with a stream of income.
No one wants to think about the inevitable, but avoiding it can cause serious issues for your heirs. We work with your estate attorney (or help you find one) to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes and your legacy is preserved for the next generation. It is never too early or too late to develop a plan for your estate. As your life and estate law changes, we ensure that your plan is properly updated.
The purpose of tax planning is to ensure that all your investments are positioned to minimize the taxes you pay to Uncle Sam. From organizing the timing and structure of withdrawals to tax-harvesting strategies for non-qualified investments, we work with you and your CPA to ensure that your wealth is not eroded by taxes.
Risk comes in all shapes and sizes, and we all know that life can throw us a curveball from time to time. Managing the risk of loss inherent to life is the best possible way to make unforeseen events less stressful. Providing for your family in the event of death, disability, or a major illness is imperative, as is managing long-term care costs without eroding your assets. Along with this, we position you so that in the event of legal action your assets won’t be unjustly be taken from you. Fortunately, these are risks our wealth advisors can help you work through with preparation and planning.
The cost of providing long-term care, whether in your own home, assisted living facilities, or a nursing home, can be catastrophic and can ultimately erode even the best of retirement plans. In addition to the emotional stress, these costs can impair a family’s financial security and legacy objectives. You need a plan. We identify your options, including the use of asset protection trusts, asset re-titling, gifting, and long-term care insurance.
