Planning = Direction = Confidence

 

Often times following the loss of a spouse or the breakup of a marriage, household income is significantly impacted. You may be worried about how you’re going to make up for lost income. You worry if you’ll be able to maintain your lifestyle and keep doing the things you like to do. Other common concerns are figuring out what accounts to draw on and the tax consequences of doing so. Making the wrong decision can cost you a lot of money!
