Bank On Yourself
 
 

B.O.Y. – or Bank On Yourself® is a financial management strategy which uses a unique and flexible insurance vehicle to accomplish many different financial goals throughout a person's lifetime.

In your youth: Bank On Yourself can be used for college expenses, weddings, purchasing cars, even financing a home.

In middle-age: Bank On Yourself is a great way to finance large purchases, from cars to home improvements, to family vacations. It can also be used to reduce and/or pay off debts, or even pay off your existing mortgage. It can also be an amazing tool for business owners – if you purchase or finance any type of equipment or property for a business, this strategy could benefit you in ways that you would never even have imagined.

In your senior years: Bank On Yourself is a reliable method for building retirement income that can last you the rest of your life, and it may can also be used for medical expenses, vacations and travel, and when it comes time, final expenses.

But it doesn't end there: After you pass away, your Bank On Yourself plan can live on after you as a legacy to your family, or go to support a charity of your choice. (And all of this on a tax-free basis – if properly structured. Be sure to consult with one of our Certified Bank On Yourself Advisors to make sure you receive all of the benefits available to you through this strategy.)

Bank On Yourself is a valid insurance strategy to use throughout your lifetime and beyond – and this is one the most powerful benefits of this concept.

Social Security Planning
 

Social Security is a very important piece of the retirement income puzzle, but many people don't realize that there are strategies available that can help maximize your Social Security benefits.

It is also important to consider how Social Security will factor into your overall retirement plan, so that you can make sure you have the proper strategy in place before retirement.

How We Can Help with Social Security Planning:

- Spousal benefits are one of the most important aspects of Social Security. Utilizing spousal benefits properly is key to maximizing your benefits. However, there are several different types of spousal benefits, and the rules vary depending on whether your spouse is living or deceased, or if you are divorced. We can help you evaluate your options and choose the spousal benefit strategy that is best for your situation.

- Some people are surprised to learn that Social Security benefits can be taxed. In fact, you can be taxed on up to 85% of your Social Security benefit, and most people will pay at least some tax. How much of your benefits will be taxed depends on your filing status and your income - as well as where that income comes from. By analyzing your retirement income plan, we may be able to help you position some of your assets to help reduce how much of your Social Security benefits will be taxed.

- Social Security is a very important part of your retirement plan, and it is equally important that you understand how to utilize the available Social Security strategies in tandem with your overall retirement income strategy, in order to maximize your benefits and achieve the level of retirement income that you require. We can provide expert guidance and customized strategies to help you achieve your goals for a comfortable retirement.

College Planning

 

When it comes to paying for college, finding an extra $10,000 – $20,000 (or more) per year, per child can be a daunting prospect. For too many parents, it means paying for college with money that should go to finance their retirement.

It's a choice no parent should have to make:

  • Will you rob your retirement account, and risk that someday you'll end up depending on your children to pay for your care?
  • Or will you let your kids go forward on their own, knowing they'll be saddled with student loans they may need decades to pay off?

We are here to help!

We offer a full suite of college planning services – from student coaching and college prep tests, to proper financial planning and budgeting to help you cover the high cost of college for your family.
