Protecting all that is yours
Protecting all that is yours
One of the most important functions we serve is helping to protect all you have worked to build. Fortunately, there are a number of ways to help. It takes the right approach, as well as steadfast discipline and diligence, to assess the risks that could derail your life goals and build a contingency plan to help limit the effects. As your experienced guide, we assess where your risk lies and determine your level of comfort with it, exploring what actions and plans to put in place to provide the level of protection you need and deserve.
Then, we tailor your financial plan to prepare for the unexpected, which could include preserving your estate with long-term care insurance, building a protective cushion with life insurance, and combining protection and tax-advantaged growth opportunities with annuities. Working together, our team helps you preserve your overall financial plan, your way of life and your confidence in reaching your goals even when the unexpected happens.
One of the risks we all face, regardless of age, is the potential for sudden illness, disability and, subsequently, the need for long-term care. All of these have far-reaching effects not just on your health, but on your way of life, your ability to earn income and on your overall finances.
We help prepare you and your family for the unexpected by ensuring you have the right types and amounts of insurance, including disability insurance to provide income if you are unable to work.
These policies have exclusions and/or limitations. The cost and availability of Long Term Care insurance depend on factors such as age, health, and the type and amount of insurance purchased. As with most financial decisions, there are expenses associated with the purchase of Long Term Care insurance. Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the insurance company.
Investing involves risk and you may incur a profit or loss regardless of strategy selected.
The goal of every retirement plan is much the same: to ensure that your money lasts as long as you do and, by employing a skillful approach, even longer. With the right risk-management method, accompanied by diligent reviewing of your investments, we work to mitigate the risk to your retirement savings by minimizing exposure to market uncertainties and tempering the effects of inflation on your portfolio.
Over the years we have learned – and witnessed – the importance of taking the necessary steps to protect your legacy for the generations to come. We work with your tax and legal professionals to create or update your estate plan documents, such as your will, trusts and powers of attorney, and ensure your beneficiary designations are up to date on everything from your retirement accounts to your insurance policies.
We also offer a full array of trust structures, including charitable-giving tools that may feature tax advantages. Whether your goal is to minimize estate taxes, help ensure you have the funds you need down the road, provide for a loved one or spell out exactly how you want your wishes to be carried out, we can help.
