A successful retirement is a dream shared by every working American. Unfortunately, it remains just a dream for nine out of every 10 who find they do not have enough money to meet their retirement needs.
According to experts in Social Security Administration, in order to be successful in retirement, you will need at least 80 percent of the income you earned in your final working years.
We specialize in helping clients address their retirement goals by providing them the guidance they need to pursue the retirement of their dreams. And we can help you do the same, through an investment strategy designed to meet your needs.

A 529 college savings plan is an investment account that allows you to set aside money for your child’s education and let it grow tax-free. These monies will not be taxed when you take it out of the account, as long as it’s used for higher education.
You can use the money in a 529 plan at any accredited college or university in the country, public or private, graduate or undergraduate. And it can be used for tuition, fees, room and board, books, supplies, and equipment.
We can help you decide if a College 529 Plan is right for you and guide you through Ohio’s maximum contribution.
**As with all tax-related decisions, consult your tax advisor. Withdrawals for expenses other than qualified education expenses are subject to income tax and an additional 10% penalty on earnings. You should consider a 529 Plan's fees and expenses such as administrative fees, enrollment fees, annual maintenance fees, sales charges, and underlying fund expenses, which will fluctuate depending on the 529 Plan invested in and the investments chosen within the plan. You should also consider the inherent risks associated with investing in 529 Plans such as investment return and principal fluctuation, which will also vary based on the investments made within the plan. More information is available in each plan’s official statement. The official statement should be read carefully before investing.
Life insurance is one of the basic building blocks for financial security. We offer a wide array of competitive products within our portfolio. A continuous evolution of product design keeps our portfolio attuned to market trends.
As your personal and financial situation evolves, it is important that you are prepared to help meet your needs with adequate resources. Knowing when, what type and how much life insurance you need will help you plan for an emergency or an unforeseen circumstance.
The type of policy you need will depend on your objective, budget, and cash value accumulation goals. Term insurance is usually more attractive when your life insurance needs are short term or when your budget is limited. In contrast, permanent life insurance is more appropriate when your insurance needs are long term or if you need to accumulate cash values for lifetime needs.
