Retirement planning

Does the conventional vision of retirement seem a little boring to you? Sure, maybe you like golf or fishing and might even enjoy an occasional trivia night battle, but those things may not be enough. You may want something bigger: new challenges, exciting adventures and experiences. Perhaps you even want an encore career or to make an impact in your community.

When it comes to your financial future, the most important factor in your favor is your age. We take advantage of the time you have, regularly contributing to tax-advantaged retirement accounts and potentially boosting savings with matching funds offered by your employer.

Your goal should be to begin building up enough assets to provide adequate income to meet your needs throughout retirement – accounting for factors like increased longevity, healthcare costs and inflation. To strive for this goal, you need a plan. That’s where we can help.

Wherever your work or life leads you, we assist in managing your cash flow and allocating your resources, striving to help you reach both your short- and intermediate-term goals without endangering your long-term plans.

Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss regardless of strategy selected, including diversification and asset allocation.

Life has a way of throwing curveballs. As you approach the end of your career, you may have questions about what comes next or if you’re ready emotionally and financially. Together, we uncover the answers, identify and address any concerns you may have, and update your estate plan to reflect your current wishes.

We start by identifying your short- and long-term goals. When do you want to retire? Where do you want to live? How will you spend your days? Then, we estimate income and expenses for the life you’re envisioning, taking into account the unexpected and other obligations so they won’t catch you unprepared.

If you need to play catchup, we examine the best way to do so by making larger contributions to your retirement accounts or possibly cutting back in other areas. We also discuss your Social Security and Medicare options with you, so you’ll be ready as soon as you’re eligible.

With the right plan, we bring your vision into sharper focus, so you can enjoy the lifestyle you want and deserve. Keep in mind that the planning doesn’t stop when your paychecks do. It’s a continuous process that goes on all the way through retirement.

We analyze your current situation to help you remain on track to pursue all you’ve envisioned from retirement, identifying sources of income and expenses to create and adhere to a tax-efficient withdrawal strategy. We make the most of your assets and income streams by creating a steady and sustainable income strategy, consolidating accounts, if necessary, to effectively help recreate the predictable cash flow of a steady paycheck and help to ensure contributions to your philanthropic interests.

Your needs and wants may change during this time. We reevaluate your plan so you can maintain a clear picture of the kind of lifestyle you desire, reassessing your short- and long-term goals, plus your risk tolerance in retirement. We also make sure you have the proper up-to-date documentation to help ensure your legacy is preserved and wishes are respected.

As your life changes, so will your plan. We will review your plan and make adjustments, as needed, along the way.
