One of Life's Biggest Unknowns ...
How long can you reasonably expect to live? That’s a key retirement planning question. And it raises questions about how to do the proper income planning now to help avoid outliving your retirement funds later.
Do you need to plan for a 20-year retirement, a 30-year retirement, or longer? If you’re married, will you outlive your spouse? The exact answers to these tough questions are unknowable. But you can do a lot better than just guesstimating with our help.

Our firm helps retirees with both educational and product implementation services by integrating all facets of the retirement puzzle:


  1. Income Planning - educating you with the methods to help you receive the most consistent income throughout your life – no matter how long you may live.

  2. Longevity Planning- to help prevent you from running out of money down the road by stress-testing your portfolio to make sure it can last throughout whatever negative fluctuations the stock market is capable of throwing at you over the next 30-years.

  3. Social Security Election Analysis – help you to not only be made aware of the largest income you may be entitled to receive but more importantly the most tax-efficient overall income you may receive throughout you and your spouse’s life.

  4. Legacy Planning for the Next Generation(‘s) - leaving large amounts of tax-free* wealth to your kids and/or grandchildren, or perhaps a charity, without jeopardizing your own quality of retirement.

  5. Advisor Integration – Working with your CPA, attorney, and other advisors to make sure everyone is on the same page and working in a team approach to maximize your retirement journey.

  6. Comprehensive Report – we provide a comprehensive report to each of our clients showing a detailed analysis and solution of the above-mentioned retirement puzzle.
