Personal Retirement Planning

We specalize in helping people who are 5-10 years away from retirement navigate this big life transition. We know it can be daunting and there's a lot to think about. Our Comprehensive Retirement Planning Package will help you make sure you're ready. This package features 5 meetings with a financial planner:

1. Get Organized Meeting

In this meeting, we'll help you simplify the complexities of your finances. We'll help you physically organize all your financial documents and obtain physical copies of documents you need. We'll help you get rid of things you don't need. And finally, we'll help you get a comprehensive view of your current financial status and net worth. 

2. Retirement Income / Expenses Planning Meeting

In this meeting, we'll help you analyze your income and expenses and create your cash flow statement. We'll also discuss future goals you have and how much money you'll need for those goals. We will use this information to help you create a cash flow projection for retirement.

3. Investment Allocation and Planning Meeting

In this meeting, we'll analyze your current investment holdings and strategy across all your accounts. We will start by determining your risk tolerance and seeing if your current strategy matches your risk tolerance, time horizon and financial needs. You may have several accounts in various places--we'll help you get a complete look at your overall portfolio and develop an organized and comprehensive investment strategy that makes sense.

4. Plan Optimization Meeting

In this meeting, we will work with you to create an overall strategy that makes sense and is achievable. We will start by testing your current plan to determine your probability of success. Then we'll take a close look at various factors like retirement age, spending, social security, pension options, etc., to determine ways we can improve and optimize your plan. Finally, we'll help you put all the pieces together into an organied plan that feels good to you. 

5. Implementation Meeting (if needed)

In this meeting, we'll help you make the needed changes to put your plan into action. We can help you contact companies you work with to make changes such as updating your 401k allocation or put you in contact with other professionals you may need to talk to next, such as an estate planning attorney.
