The best retirement plan is the one that matches your idea of a life well lived. Perhaps you want to step out of the workforce forever to travel the world — or to slow down and spend time with the grandkids. Or maybe you’d rather try an encore career, start a business, or work part-time. Whether around the corner or years away, our team can handle the complexity of planning for retirements of all shapes and sizes.
Save early and work hard to retire as soon as you are able. Once retired, enjoy a life of leisure, quality time with family, and volunteering.
Save aggressively, live frugally, and retire early to maximize the length of time you spend out of the workforce.
Opt for continued engagement, fulfillment, and additional financial security by scaling back and finding a new work-life balance.
Step out of work, enjoy a sabbatical — then return to the workforce in a similar or different capacity, refreshed and ready for a new challenge.
Retirement planning is complex. It requires alignment between goals, living expenses, Social Security claiming strategies, investment choices, distributions, and taxes. A retirement plan must also include anticipated healthcare expenses, possible changes in tax law, long-term care needs, and more. Our goal is to provide clarity and guidance for your retirement years — so that you can pursue a life of impact, meaning, and joy.
