About My Practice
Do you have questions like these?
• How much do I need to save in my 401k before I retire?
• When and how should I claim my social security benefits?
• How much income do I need now and in 20 years to sustain my current lifestyle?
• Are my investments allocated properly to maintain purchasing power?
• What is a reasonable amount to withdraw each year from my IRA?
• How much money should I prepare to spend on my future healthcare costs?
• Am I paying more income taxes than I should be?
Our process of education and discovery is called My Financial Bridge. My Financial Bridge is designed in a well-organized, chronological manner that explores the events we face over a lifetime. No matter what point you’ve reached on your journey across the bridge, you can always review what you’ve done to make certain your financial foundation is strong, assess your current position and look ahead to the opportunities and challenges you’ll face.
By reviewing the various check-points along the bridge, you can examine whether or not you’re moving forward and implementing the best financial choices for your situation. In addition, My Financial Bridge is a storage resource for your important financial information made easily accessible.
