Chances are you could live well into your 80s, your 90s and possibly even longer.
When you live a long life, the likelihood you’ll need long-term health care is greatly increased. Younger people also need long term care as a result of accidents or illnesses.
Almost 70% of people turning age 65 will need long-term care at some point in their lives1. Many people think the phrase “long-term care” refers to an insurance policy. While insurance may be part of your strategy, long-term care encompasses everything from long-term services and supports and finances, to where you will live and how you will navigate the myriad of legal, family, and social dynamics along the way.
Long-term health care is generally not covered by medical insurance, by Medicare supplement plans or group/employer insurance. For seniors on Medicare, the long-term care benefits can be quite limited.
That is why over 10 million Americans have purchased long-term care insurance1. We offer several LTC solutions including individual plans, asset-based long-term care, and life-insurance-based long-term care. We will work with you to find the best plan for your LTC needs.
We work with you, focusing on the ideal lifestyle you want to live today as opposed to deferring that lifestyle to a future that may never come. Having you really think about what you’re saving for is a big opportunity to have a richer dialogue about your retirement and how we can help you develop a personalized plan to reach your ideal retirement lifestyle.
Creating a life map involves a close analysis of personal finances and an assessment of other building blocks. Lifestyle matters look at how to balance work and leisure, how to make smart choices for the future and many other items regarding how to help you enjoy the journey.

We will help you implement any new plan of action that has been developed in light of your changing goals or changing performance.
Your Social Security retirement benefit represents a lifetime’s worth of savings, time and work. Although many Americans are familiar with the basics of Social Security, few are able to figure out exactly the best way to file, so they can get the most out of all they have put in.
We can help you understand your Social Security benefits and educate you on how you can maximize those benefits. For example, delayed filing for Social Security can potentially increase your benefit amount by a rate of eight percent per year.1
We will help you get the highest amount possible to help you achieve a secure and enjoyable retirement.
You can now look forward to a retirement that could last 30 years or more. That’s a great thing. But planning for it comes with more challenges than ever before. One of the most common fears for retirees and those planning for retirement is outliving their money. So while you’re thinking about hobbies and travel, you’re also focused on healthcare costs. Volatile markets. Taxes and inflation.

One of the keys to a reliable financial strategy is spending less than you take in, and then finding a way to put your excess to work. A money-management approach involves creating budgets you understand so you can make informed decisions about where your money is going. It also involves knowing where you may be able to put your excess cash to work.
You have meaningful goals. We can help you reach them. We have worked with individuals, families, businesses and institutions—to deliver services and solutions that help build, preserve and manage wealth.
We work with you to determine the most appropriate way for you to invest. There are a range of ways to invest, each requiring different levels of involvement and decision making. Some people like to be very involved in the investing process. Others would rather leave the day-to-day decision making to a professional. Still others are somewhere in between. We will work with you to find the best way to manage your portfolio of investments, based on your needs and risk tolerance.
Effective estate management enables you to manage your affairs during your lifetime and control the distribution of your wealth after death. An effective estate plan can spell out your healthcare wishes and ensure they’re carried out – even if you are unable to communicate. An effective plan can even designate someone to manage your financial affairs, should you be unable to do so.
It’s never too early to begin thinking about your legacy or to shape your estate plan. Contrary to what many people think, you don’t need to be a millionaire to have an estate plan. An estate plan is an important part of any ongoing financial planning process.
Your legacy transcends money — it also encompasses your values. Your wishes and dreams may include using your assets to help secure your family’s future or you may choose to support another cause close to your heart. This might be your favorite charity, your community or your place of worship, to name a few.
We can help you design a legacy consistent with your dreams and values. Estate planning is critical to ensure that your family receives the assets you have accumulated during your life. Regardless of how much money you have, we feel estate planning is the best way to protect the financial interests of your family when you are no longer here to do so.
