It has the potential to be the most exciting and rewarding time of your life, yet you may have some questions and concerns about this new phase of life.

Questions we can help you answer:

  • What pension option should I choose?
  • Is my spouse going to be ok if I die first? Who will provide them with sound financial guidance after I am gone?
  • How do I make sense of Medicare? How can I make sure that I don’t miss deadlines or have to pay penalties?
  • What is the difference between Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage? Which one is best for me?
  • What is an RMD? How can I comply so that I don’t get penalized?
  • From which accounts should I take withdrawals? Should I be considering ROTH conversions?
