Many Transformational Events Happen Throughout Your Life.
Some of these events could be predictable. Others? Completely unexpected. There’s no doubt that you’re going to go through a lot of challenges as you get older, but that doesn’t mean you need to go through them alone. No matter what stage you’re in, we’ll help you plan for your future and show you how to have those important talks with your family.
Who knows – we may even help you prepare for the “completely unexpected”.
Most young adults don’t think about retirement.
Then, years later, they often say, “I wish I started earlier." Hindsight is 20/20, and yes, earlier is always the best option. But, do you know your next best option? (Hint: it’s right now). Getting started early in life lets you take advantage of the most powerful investment tool you have: time.
How do you best utilize this time? By equipping yourself with the knowledge you need regarding finances, short-term and long-term goals and building the right risk tolerance mindset for investing. We can help with all of that. Of course, we can help with the technical stuff too – like making sure you’re maximizing your company’s benefits, exploring your options with individual retirement accounts and managing your cash flow. Whatever it is, don’t wish you say you started earlier. The clock is ticking. Start now.
Mortgages, student loans, child costs, car loans, insurance premiums – you name it.
The list of financial obligations after young adulthood can seem endless and overwhelming. With these obligations, how can you expect to buy your first home? Or pay down your existing mortgage? How do you know you’ll be able to reach your goals when costs rise unexpectedly?
During your early midlife, it’s extremely important to understand where every dollar goes. This includes both your expenses and your savings. While this can be challenging, knowing how you spend and save your money can be both financially and emotionally rewarding. All it takes is a custom investment strategy that's in line with your future.
When can I retire? How much will I need? How long will my savings last me?
These are just some of the questions people often ask themselves when leaving their lifelong careers – questions they thought they could just worry about tomorrow. We all know, however, that time flies. Before you know it, you’re moving faster than you’d like. Don’t let these transitions slow you down.
Every decision you make in your life – big and small – can be navigated with extreme confidence. To gain that confidence, you need some support, and we can provide just that. Between IRAs, 401(k)s, retirement benefits, risk management, Social Security, Medicare and more – you’ve got the questions, and we’ve got the answers. Transform a transition of uncertainty into a brighter future.
Aging and Years of Wisdom
There comes a point when you've fulfilled all your personal goals.
What happens then? This is what we call the aging and years of wisdom life transition. It’s a period in your life when money isn’t as much as a concern to obtain your goals. However, financial security at this stage is as important as ever. After all, what will happen if you end up needing assisted living? Or come across unexpected health problems? Find out that your Medicare/Medicaid plan doesn’t provide you with what you wanted? Who’ll take care of you? What’ll you do?
Far too often, we’ve seen families who do not want to have these hard discussions about aging. Unfortunately, this always causes more problems and stress for everyone. Honest, open communication with your family and loved ones is key to success in this stage. This involves constantly communicating these intentions with your family and ensuring your intentions are reflected and updated in documents like wills and trusts. You shouldn’t have to worry about stress and confusion at a time when you should instead be focusing on family and relationships. Let us make those hard discussions easy.
