RE: Retirement 18 Years Worth of Days Bridging the Confidence Gap Tuning Your Social Security Benefit

Planning for retirement or another financial goal can sometimes seem very difficult. There is simply an unceasing torrent of information available via the internet and business cable-news channels, let alone commercials, infomercials, radio and web ads -- much of it conflicting! How do you even begin to decipher all of this?

It does not have to be difficult. I am a Financial Advisor located in San Ramon, CA. I have helped many folks just like you work through their goals, understand their options, and then help implement an Independent Plan that takes into account ALL available resources (including  employer  benefits).  I love what I do and have done it for over 20 years now.

Call my office to arrange a free consultation or sign up for our online newsletter.

Do you have questions about how IRAsAnnuities401ks, or Pensions work? Is a SEP IRA or SIMPLE IRA right for you or your company? How about Mutual FundsLife Insurance, or Fee-based Advisory Accounts? What are the differences between a CD, an Annuity, and a Bond? Is inflation different for people who are working versus folks who are already retired? I can help you understand the answers to questions like these in plain English, which is often the first step in helping you develop a plan of action to address your financial concerns.

Please feel free to explore and share this website with your friends, family and co-workers, and to contact me if you would like more information on how I may be of service to you. Remember, I can help you develop a financial plan of action and help implement that plan. It doesn't have to be difficult. I look forward to speaking with you!
