Major Life Events
Have you sold your business or considered a sale? We can guide you through the complex financial decisions that result.
Let us help you with strategies to:
- Reduce your tax burden
- Recreate an income stream
- Fund charitable contributions
- Invest the liquidity while addressing your goals
- Take care of your heirs and leave a legacy
Whether by divorce or the death of a spouse, becoming suddenly single can be overwhelming on many fronts. This is especially true if your spouse was responsible for the family finances. Our goal is to lift your burden and allow you to breathe easier.
We’ll help you get through this by:
- Addressing what needs attention now and what can wait.
- Dealing with inherited retirement monies and insurance proceeds.
- Retitling accounts in your name.
- Explaining some of the estate planning implications.
- Crafting a plan of action for moving forward that inspires confidence.
The emotions surrounding a job change vary depending on whether the move was voluntary or not. Either way, you’re likely to have monies in your company retirement plan that need to be addressed. We can help you analyze which of these four options is right for you:
- Roll over your 401(k) account to an IRA
- Roll your old 401(k) account into your new employer’s plan
- Leave your 401(k) account in the old employer’s plan
- Cash out your account
We have found that people view inherited monies different from monies earned. If you have a lump sum of money, we can help you formulate a plan that aligns your goals and your values.
We’ll go over ways to:
- Put this money to work for you.
- Create an income stream.
- Take care of your heirs.
- Fund charitable gifts.
- Reduce your tax burden.
Whether you want to quit working, scale back, or embark on a new venture, financial independence is about making work optional. Whether you’re on the path to or already enjoying your next phase, let us help you:
- Establish a safe withdrawal rate and decide which accounts to tap first.
- Determine the right Social Security withdrawal strategy.
- Analyze your retirement rollover options.
- Take care of your family and leave a legacy.
- Educate yourself about online scams and identity theft.
