Planning to achieve your objectives is important but protecting your ability to do so is too often neglected. When we speak of protection and risk management, we are referring to insurance. We can assist you in the acquisition, analysis and maintenance of your policies.

  • Life Insurance*: Sure, it provides financial protection for the family in the event of the premature death of a loved one, but it can be so much more. As a financial planning tool, it can be used to:
    • Leverage wealth passing to the next generation;
    • Charitable gifting and bequests;
    • Provide estate liquidity to cover estate taxes and other estate settlement costs;
    • Deferred compensation plan
  • Disability Insurance: Often, there may be disability coverage through an employer or other group plan. These policies can be complicated, and it is important to understand what is and is not covered.
  • Health Insurance: This often provided in the work place but may be problematic where it is not or where one retires or terminates employer before becoming eligible for Medicare.
  • Long Term Care Insurance: LTC has become more popular and more expensive in recent years. Coordinating this coverage with life insurance and legal planning strategies** can help streamline your coverage.
  • Property and Casualty Insurance***: This may include automobile, homeowner, business, cybersecurity, environmental damage and excess personal liability coverage. Coverage coordination issues may arise regarding asset titling and coverage gaps.

Coordinating all of your insurance coverage is a financial planning question and one addressed by our comprehensive financial planning process.
