The Next Step
What are the steps to take action?
Congratulations! You've come to the decision to take action on your financial future. There are a few things that we will need to help you along your journey.
First off, when we sit down to meet, leave your checkbook at home. There is nothing to buy. We're going to sit down and we're going to figure out where you are. What does your retirement look like? Where are you currently sitting? These are just some of the common questions we ask you.
Most people are not prepared for retirement
Most people think they are ready for retirement, but when it gets right down to it, they're not going to have enough money. They will run out. We're going to help you figure it out and how do we solve that problem.
We believe in a concept: good, better, best. Never let it rest, until good gets better, and better gets best! What you've done up until this point is very good. Is there a better way? And is there a best way? It's truly a case by case situation. There is no one thing that fits all people.
What should I bring?
When you come to your consultation, be sure to bring:
- Tax returns over the last few years
- Social Security statements
- Pension statements (if applicable)
- Any kind of financial documents (annuities, life insurance, etc.)
- Know your beneficiaries
If you don't think you can find all of this don't worry. We can still have a meeting! It will just help speed up the process if you have some of these things to help us figure out where you are!
