Financial Planning for Individuals

We strive to identify where you are currently in relationship to your financial goals and highlight those issues that may represent a potential obstacle in pursuing your goals. Our personal service begins with an analysis of where you are today and we then project that into the future to see where you are in relationship to your goals.

Financial Advice & Consulting

401K Rollovers

A plan participant leaving an employer typically has four options (and may engage in a combination of these options), each choice offering advantages and disadvantages. For balance, please update your material to include each option below: " Leave the money in his/her former employer's plan, if permitted"; "Roll over the assets to his/her new employer's plan, if one is available and rollovers are permitted"; " Roll over to an IRA"; or " Cash out the account value."

Insurance Planning

We sit down with each of our clients and look through their risk management needs to help determine if insurance is a specific need or if what you have is sufficient. If an insurance product is found to be helpful to protect the client, we go through the advantages and disadvantages of several types of insurance products to help them understand what may help benefit them.
