Retirement Plan Consulting

We work closely with you to determine appropriate retirement plan options that help your business, your employees and you individually pursue a financially secure retirement. We utilize Defined Contribution, Profit Sharing, Pension Plans as well as ESOPs, or a combination of them to help create a great solution. We'll also educate your employees on the company plan and options, along with offering to consult with them on their personal planning. Learn more about our retirement plan consulting services.

There are two types of business succession: Planned and Unplanned. If you can plan and orchestrate your exit from your business, it's truly the best of all worlds for you, your family and employees. Through proper planning and collaborating with the other professional advisors in your life, we'll help you and your business end up in desired circumstances after you exit your business. If you die or have health issues that remove you from your business, what would happen in the following days, months and years? Succession needs can occur before your planned time horizon. We help you define those needs as a business owner or CEO. Your succession plan can help ensure a smooth transition of your business to new leadership, mitigate taxes, prevent a loss of control over the disposition of your company, and avoid a decline in the value of your business in the event of your death or unexpected disability.
Executive & Key Employee Benefits
Offering a non-qualified benefits plan can attract and retain key employees. We help you determine and implement appropriate plans, such as deferred compensation, long term incentive plans (LTIP), carve out, bonus, and supplemental executive retirement plans (SERP).
Buy/Sell Funding Strategies
Life insurance is designed to help protect a family in the event of an untimely death of a primary wage earner. But what protects a business in the event of a business owner’s death or total disability? One way to safeguard your business and protect it from a loss of revenue is to create a buy-sell agreement. Beyond offering advice on the agreement, we work with your attorney to determine the right type of agreement and make sure you have the appropriate funding in place to execute it.
Key Person Insurance
Key person Insurance is Life or Disability Income Insurance on a key employee or partner, with the business serving as the beneficiary. This can offset a risk by reimbursing your business for economic losses that occur, or the cost of hiring & training someone new, when a key person in your company dies or has health issues that cause them not to be able to work full time. We can work with you to determine your business’ key personnel and evaluate affordable solutions for this liability.
