RETIREMENT PLANNING

The number one fear for many people is running out of money in retirement. With the uncertain future of Social Security benefits and a decrease in traditional pension plans being offered, individuals have to assume more of the responsibility in funding their own retirement. We are here to help guide you to a secure retirement with our extensive retirement planning experience and tools. Today, taxes and inflation are making it increasingly difficult for people to save enough money for a comfortable retirement. We aim to identify the most effective retirement planning vehicle for you to maximize tax savings and save the most for retirement.

We develop specific strategies based on our clients' individual situations to help them attain their investment goals. We offer a variety of investment options such as: non traded REITS, Limited Partnerships, Oil and Gas Programs, Equipment Leasing Programs, etc.

ANNUITIES

Company pensions are no longer a primary source of retirement income. In the past 5 years Annuities have become an important part of investor's personal pension programs.

Depending on your situation, an annuity can provide a number of benefits.
