Having a trusted contact person is important

If we think you may be a victim of fraud, we will contact you. Fast action can help resolve issues quickly. A trusted contact person is someone you authorize us to contact in limited circumstances, such as if we're unable to reach you and have concerns about activity in your account. This person should be someone you trust, such as a family member, friend or professional (such as your attorney). Your trusted contact person will not be an authorized party on your accounts and your account details will not be shared with them. 

Connect with me today to add a trusted contact person to your account.

Taking required minimum distributions

If you invest in traditional IRAs or employer-sponsored retirement savings plans, it’s important to know that they are not shielded from taxes indefinitely. When you reach age 73, you must take required minimum distributions (RMDs) to avoid tax penalties. Contact me today to learn more about your options.

Are you due for an insurance review?

When is the last time you have had your life insurance policy reviewed?

Will Social Security be there for you?

Like most people, you probably have a lot of questions about the role Social Security will play in your retirement. The answers to these questions depend largely on your earning history and when you plan to start taking benefits. Understanding the concepts behind Social Security can help you make well-informed decisions that will optimize the amount and timing of your benefits and the impact on your overall retirement plan. For more information, review the Social security fundamentals white paper or contact me to discuss your retirement plan.

When to start taking Social Security benefits

Social Security can be an important part of your retirement income stream. The decision about when to begin taking the benefits you have earned may have important consequences. Start them early and your monthly income will be lower than if you wait until your full retirement age. Delay them and your monthly “paycheck” will be larger. Please contact me for help determining when it may be appropriate for you to start taking social security benefits and to explore strategies for maximizing benefits for married couples.

Planning for your goals while preparing for the unexpected

Insurance is foundational to your financial health and well-being. As you consider life insurance options, it’s important to have a protection strategy based on your current situation, and flexible enough to change over time. As your financial advisor, I can help you assess and manage your protection needs, and determine the steps we need to take to safeguard what is most important to you. Together, we can protect you and your loved ones from financial hardship, should the unexpected occur. Contact me today for a complementary protection consultation.

Prepare for the unexpected

When unforeseen or sudden events happen, whether it’s a business opportunity, a family emergency or even a natural disaster, consider an RBC Credit Access Line, through the Royal Bank of Canada, for flexible financing and immediate access to liquidity when you need it most. This short-term, securities-based line of credit allows you to use your investments as collateral and borrow money instead of selling your assets. Contact me today to learn more about RBC Credit Access Line and be prepared for the unexpected.

 

Wondering what to do with excess 529 savings?
