We understand this is an important time in your life. As a fiduciary financial advisor, we are ready to help you avoid costly mistakes and make a successful financial plan.

• Time frame on deferrals
a. When do they start in the future?
b. How do we compliment this with retirement income and taxes?

What do I do with my 401(k)?
• Roll into an IRA?
• What if I leave my 401(k) with my employer? Is there a benefit?
