BAM FAQs

Real Questions. Real Answers.

General Questions

We’ll analyze your potential sources of income in retirement, uncovering ways to help optimize and maximize your Social Security benefits, pension options and account distributions.
Through our Income and Investment Risk Assessment, we’ll identify how much of your annual retirement income will be sourced from accounts exposed to market volatility. We’ll also review your portfolio allocation, making sure it’s in line with your retirement income goals and personal tolerance for risk.
Investment fees could be pulling down your portfolio’s performance, leaving you short of your growth goals. We’ll conduct a Cost Analysis to show you exactly what your fees are and steps you can take to potentially reduce costs that may be dragging down your investment returns.
Using our proactive tax planning and tax reduction strategies, we’ll establish a plan for when to use certain types of money to minimize tax exposure. We’ll also identify areas where taxation could legally be avoided, potentially making a significant impact on your retirement income.
We’ll look at how the death or disability of one spouse could affect the surviving spouse’s financial situation and implement strategies designed to ensure they can continue in the lifestyle they’re used to.
We’ll evaluate the potential financial impact to your estate if you need long-term care or experience a health crisis and explore your options for paying for medical care.
We work closely with an estate planning attorney to determine what legal documents or tools you need to help with your wealth transfer goals. We’ll also regularly review your existing documents to make sure your money is distributed according to your wishes in a tax-efficient manner.

Many people have a financial advisor and still choose to visit with us for a second opinion. We find that some financial advisors are only focused on investments and/or may be charging high fees. They are not helping clients with other important retirement issues such as saving on taxes, planning for future health care costs and protecting your assets. During your initial meeting, we’ll discuss your potential needs in these areas. We’ll also take a second look at your financial accounts to provide you with a fee and risk analysis. There is no cost for this meeting and no obligation on your part to do business with us.
