It is surprising how many people don't know how much their monthly expenses are. How can we properly plan for retirement without knowing this number? Another eye opener is realizing that the Government is a key partner who will get a percentage of the current dollar amount in your 401-K, SEP or Traditional IRA. If taxes go up, so does their percentage - be prepared!

The products change constantly, the interest rates and caps adjust each month, and sometimes it is challenging to keep abreast of all the new developments. This month we look at .......Allianz Life Pro+ and how it competes against North American, LSW and Voya Indexed Universal Life:
Do you charge a fee? Yes, an hourly rate based on work performed. I also earn a commission if we put products in place; however, the hourly fee is waived if recommended products are purchased.
Do you act in the role of fiduciary with your clients? Yes, as a certified insurance consultant, it is my primary responsibility and intention to always act in the best interests of the client first.
How do I know what my Financial Advisor's fees are, and if they are reasonable? Great question - Let's chat!
What's the difference between a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medicare Supplement? Primary difference is a Supplement plan gives you many more choices - you can choose which doctor, which hospital, and where you want your care to be given at. I believe Advantage Plans quickly become "disadvantage plans" when you get really sick, and consequently, do not sell or recommend them."
