Insurance Planning

  1. The financial protection insurance products provide is an integral part of any financial plan.  We assist clients in both reviewing what they currently have, both on their own and through their employer’s group benefits, and calculating their actual need.  We take a looks at many different areas of including:
    1. Life Insurance
    2. Income Protection/Disability Insurance
    3. Long-Term Care Insurance
  2. Our goal with clients is to have a simplified, straight forward conversation about their insurance needs and help them navigate through the many different types of insurance to find what best fits their short-term, long-term, and income needs.
  3. We see that most clients have not reviewed their coverage in years or decades.  The insurance market changes more quickly than many people think, both in cost of coverage and products that are available.  We suggest clients review their policies every three years to both review their potentially changing needs as well as changes and opportunity in the insurance market.

 


 

Estate Planning
