Happy Thursday!

A timely "Trick" and "Treat" message about retirement planning.

The Trick 🎃

We've had quite a few retirement focused meetings with new clients lately. People come to us knowing that they are close to retirement, but want us to review their income stream scenarios.

Retirement can feel like a scary 👻 life transition even for those who have more than enough saved. It's what people don't know that truly spooks them. The TVAMP team is experienced, educated, and truly excited about helping our clients retire at their best possible time.

The Treat 🍫

Soon-to-be retirees crave confidence. We consider it a treat 🍬 to help people navigate the complexities of things like health insurance and Social Security, then determine how to deploy their retirement funds.

Our clients who are going on their 60s are amazed at just how far Social Security and Medicare (and sometimes their pension) will go in replacing their salary and employment benefits.

To us, nothing is more rewarding than preparing you for for life’s milestones and helping you reach your goals.
