Many of today’s retirees can expect to spend 30 years or more enjoying the fruits of their labor. That’s why it’s increasingly important not simply to plan for retirement, but to plan for a long retirement. Key questions include:
- Where will you live?
- How will you get around?
- How will you safeguard your health?
- Who will take care of you?
- Will you have enough?
We can help you make a holistic plan for retirement that takes into account your preferences for housing, transportation, healthcare, caregiving, lifestyle and more, adjusting the plan to make sure it stays in harmony with your life.

Please keep in mind that diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss
