Financial security begins by building a plan you can trust

At RBC Wealth Management, we understand your financial goals are unique — that’s why we provide customized advice. No matter where you are in life, you can depend on our investment management expertise to build a plan that helps you achieve your financial goals. Explore our website to learn more about our customizable solutions designed to strengthen your financial security.

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 us 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.

An empowered approach

Our goals-based wealth planning approach is designed to ultimately help you achieve your vision and live empowered. Working together, we identify strategies to help grow your wealth, fund your lifestyle today and tomorrow, protect what's important to you and create your legacy.

Our approach features four financial pillars to help guide you through your life stages:

Accumulate wealthAccumulate and grow your wealth

Working toward tomorrow, define your goals, plan, save and invest. Review your finances regularly. Build and maintain an emergency fund of at least six months of expenses.

As you approach retirement, take advantage of catch-up contributions and align investments to offset inflation.

In your encore years, review and understand the probable outcome of your wealth plan and consider consolidating accounts to simplify your financial life.


Fund your lifestyleFund your lifestyle

In the early stages, avoid or eliminate unproductive debt. Fund but defer health savings account spending until retirement.

Approaching retirement, create a retirement plan for your paycheck as well as a budget for your expenses.

In your later years, plan for your distributions and manage your spending to cover your needs.


Protect what's importantProtect what's important to you

At first, evaluate and consider your options for various types of insurance, ranging from health, disability, life and long-term care insurance.

Closer to retirement, re-evaluate your insurance needs and use credit strategically.

Enroll in Medicare at 65 and claim Social Security at 70. Avoid selling assets in down markets. Discuss your care wishes with your loved ones.


Create your legacyCreate your legacy

Establish a will, power of attorney, health care directive and revocable trust. Check your beneficiary designations. Consider a charitable giving plan that aligns with your values.

Near retirement, revisit your estate planning documents and beneficiary designations. Have plans for housing and care needs.

After retiring, check that your estate plan aligns with your wishes. Understand your estate and gift tax thresholds.


It all starts and ends with you
