We know that the road through retirement is a tricky one. Everything is different than before.
During your working years you needed to work, earn, save, and live below your means. If you did that, financially the rest of it pretty much takes care of itself.
Retirement is different. The skills it takes to get there are not the same skills it takes to thrive there. Now it's all about creating an income plan, protecting what you have, and watching out for the many pitfalls that can derail an otherwise great retirement.
But don't worry - while this may be your first time down this road, we've been here many times before. We work with you as a guide, walking the journey with you. We're not map makers. We aren't going to create a financial plan and send you on your way. We take the trip with you, and we'll be there when you need us.
Do I have too much risk? Should I be worrying about what is going on in the economy? Should I change how I am invested? We can help you manage your portfolio, and answer those questions.
When to elect Social Security is a complex decision with many variables. The kicker is - you only get to make that decision once. The same goes for pensions. We can walk you through all your options.
