Savannah Wealth Group - What We Do

 

Retirement Planning

Retirement is typically one of the top financial goals you'll work toward.  It may be furthest out, but a good financial plan starts with figuring out how much you'll need to live on during your retirement years, putting a strategy in place to get there, and then addressing your shorter-term needs.  Having the freedom to live your way during retirement will depend, at least in part, on having a plan that aligns with your personal goals. Regardless of the types of retirement products you currently invest in, you don't want to bet your entire nest egg on just one. 

 

Some individuals may need as much as 70% of their pre-retirement income to maintain their current lifestyle during retirement. Savings from pensions and other retirement plans will have to make up a large percentage of their retirement income. Saving through an employer plan may help your employees (and you) achieve this goal.  If self-employed or an employer sponsored plan isn’t available a Traditional or Roth IRA, SEP IRA, SIMPLE IRA or Solo K may be an option.  Reach out to one of our Wealth Management Advisors so we can assist and prepare a plan for your financial future. 

 

 

 

Long-term Care Insurance

What is long term care?  Long term care is a variety of services and supports to help meet personal care needs over an extended period of time.  Long term care may involve non-skilled personal care assistance, such as help performing everyday Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), which are: bathing, dressing, using the toilet, transferring (to or from bed or chair), caring for incontinence and eating.  Long term care services may help you maximize your independence and functioning at a time when you are unable to be fully independent.  The plans you make today could impact your future lifestyle, and the quality of life you experience.

 

You should consider long term care insurance sooner than later as there is a clear advantage in securing long term care coverage at a younger age. You are more likely to be healthier which will enable you to qualify for premiums that are generally lower.  The earlier you begin planning, the more options you may have to continue living life on your terms.  Should a serious illness, an accident or injury cause you to need assistance with your daily activities, or should you have a severe cognitive impairment, a plan can help you prepare to receive the care you want — in the setting you choose. It can also help protect your assets, retirement funds, and your estate from being depleted to provide care.

Disability Insurance

Chances are you have insurance on your life, but what if you became sick or hurt and unable to work?  Just imagine what would happen if your income suddenly stopped.  Disability income insurance coverage can help replace a portion of lost earnings and can help provide return-to-work benefits.   Think of disability income insurance as a strategy that can replace a portion of your income to help cover your expenses if you become disabled and can’t work. 

 

If you are a business owner, the responsibility of owning and managing your business rests on your shoulders. In the event of a disabling illness or injury, disability income insurance can provide support.  While you recuperate, disability income insurance protection can help cover day-to-day business overhead expenses for up to two years, and can provide the funds for the purchase of the insured’s share of the business in the event of total disability.

 

It is not uncommon for people to assume that most disabilities are the result of accidents. In reality, the majority of disabilities people suffer are due to various forms of illness.  No matter what your personal situation is, we can tailor an income insurance solution suitable for your needs.

 
 

Life Insurance

Do I need life insurance?  In general, if anyone is financially dependent on you or if you need a way to provide funds for your final expenses, the answer is yes.  Life insurance is one of the most effective ways to help protect the financial security of your family or business against the economic loss that may result when you die.  However, your life insurance may help you achieve other financial goals, such as providing cash for emergencies, preparing for retirement or ensuring that you leave a financial legacy for the next generation.

 

It is important to assess the financial needs of your family in order to determine the appropriate amount of coverage to help protect their standard of living.  The income you earn may be the single largest financial contribution you make to those who matter most in your life. Consider the amount you can expect to earn over the course of your career.  

 

Once you have determined the right amount, the next step is to decide which type of coverage is right for you. There are two basic types: term life insurance and permanent life insurance. For many people, some combination of the two is the best fit.  Purchasing life insurance can seem like an overwhelming task. With access to so much information just a few mouse clicks away, sifting through all of the terms and data can be challenging. In fact, one of the top reasons people give for not purchasing life insurance is that they are afraid to make the wrong decision.  It doesn’t have to be so confusing.  

 

Our Wealth Management Advisors can help you understand the benefits that each type of policy offers, and help you determine the coverage that is right for you.

 

 

Medicare Insurance Planning

 

The transition from group/individual health insurance to Medicare can be very confusing.  When you first enroll in Medicare and during certain times of the year, you can choose how you get your Medicare coverage. Most individuals qualify for Medicare at age 65.  There are 2 main ways to get Medicare; Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage(Part C).  

 

Original Medicare includes Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance).  If you want drug coverage, you can join a separate Part D plan.  Medicare Part A & B have deductibles and coinsurances but typically pay 80%, leaving you paying those deductibles and 20% coinsurance.  To help pay your out-of-pocket costs in Original Medicare (like your 20% coinsurance), you can also shop for and buy supplemental coverage.  You can typically use any doctor or hospital that takes Medicare, anywhere in the U.S.

 

Medicare Advantage is an “all in one” alternative to Original Medicare. These “bundled” plans include Part A, Part B, and usually Part D.  MA Plans may have lower out-of-pocket costs than Original Medicare.  In most cases, you’ll need to use doctors who are in the plan’s network.  Most plans offer extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover— like vision, hearing, dental, and more.
