Important Update: Account Access

Many of you have utilized our Centaurus account aggregation service over the years. Our consolidated accounts center has been twofold:

1. You can view all of your "core accounts," i.e. those accounts held directly through Mason & Associates.

2. Through "Fiserv," formerly "CashEdge," you could link your "external accounts," i.e. accounts not held through our firm, such as your bank accounts, TSP, and etc.

Unfortunately Fiserv/CashEdge, the external portion, is proving increasingly difficult for our clients to use. As of July 16, 2018 we are canceling this subscription. Instead of continuing to battle with a product that does not work, we want to find a total account aggregation solution for our clients.

We will notify you as soon as we implement technology that can better serve you in aggregating your external accounts. You will still be able to access all of your Mason & Associates accounts in one place.

Please note that fixed annuities held through Allianz will no longer show up in your portfolio after Fiserv is removed. While these accounts are held through Mason & Associates, they do not feed into the core accounts section, and hence have always been added through Fiserv.
July 4 Holiday Hours

Our office will be closed tomorrow through Friday, July 4 - 6. Please submit any requests for funds by 10:00AM today, Tuesday, July 3. Have a happy and safe Independence Day!

Just Married

Alýssa and Todd Christiansen tied the knot on June 2! Our Chief Branding Officer, Alýssa, met the love of her life three years ago in yoga class. Ever since their zen encounter, Alýssa knew Todd was the one, and he has made her the happiest girl in the world every day since. Todd, an Assistant Principal at Smithfield High School, is absolutely perfect for Alýssa, and we know he will take good care of her.
Their wedding was held in a lovely courtyard at The Mariners' Museum in Newport News on an amazing (thunderous!) day. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, so these two are going to have the BEST luck!!! Todd and Alýssa enjoyed a two week honeymoon in Martinique! Needless to say, marriage is going great so far!! Congratulations, Alýssa and Todd - wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
