Thinking About Retirement?
The transition into the retirement phase is one of the most important steps in life. There are a lot of questions that begin to arise, even feeling a sense of doubt over preparedness. The common question people want to know from us is, “Do I have enough?” This comes before deciding how they are going to fill up their days with quality family time, traveling to places you’ve yet to experience, or even picking up a new hobby.
We serve clients through this journey leading up to, and sustaining in, retirement. We can help you answer that question, “Do I have enough?” But we also plan for unexpected life events, so that you can focus on things that matter most in your life: family, friends, serving others, fulfilling purpose, etc.
If you are the person who desires a partner to walk through their retirement preparedness, then we can assist! It doesn’t matter if you are just starting your career, 5 years from retirement, or already in retirement. We work with clients at all stages of the process.
How We Serve Clients
Retirement is more than just reviewing your Roth IRA or 401(k) plan. At Generational Wealth Planning we build custom financial plans that are unique to client circumstances, goals, and desired outcomes.
Our services touch upon a wide range of financial planning topics, such as investment management, strategic tax planning, the wealth transfer process, review of insurances, and more! This doesn’t all happen at once. We cover these topics over time through long lasting relationships with our clients.
At GWP, we focus on comprehensive planning with an emphasis on retirement. The additional retirement topics include:
Sample Client Scenarios
Below are sample client scenarios that we’ve built out. This gives you an idea of how we plan with our clients.
These are not real clients; however, the scenarios are similar to people who we serve currently. Every situation is unique and specific to the person for which we create a plan. No two people are exactly alike. There are three scenarios that we created, which represent the following generalized client type: young accumulators, pre-retirees, and retirees.
