HOW DID YOU SCORE?

If you answered “yes” to 10 or more of the above questions, you may be at a higher risk of facing some form of significant income planning obstacle, and could benefit from a no-obligation, 30-minute analysis and/or a more comprehensive financial review.

If you answered “yes” on four to nine of the questions, you may be at risk of developing problems involving your income strategy that could affect your financial goals for retirement. Your family or loved ones may also face unintended financial liabilities after you pass away. It may be wise, at this point, to take advantage of a no-obligation, 30-minute analysis to get a second opinion and learn about alternative strategies, insurance products and various investment vehicles.

If you answered “yes” to three or fewer of the questions, you are likely not exposed to significant income planning issues at this time that could impact you or your family’s retirement goals and objectives.

  • When you sat down with your financial professional at your last meeting and went over your investment and income strategy to make sure everything was still on track, were you satisfied with your situation?
