Retirement Income Planning

The move from career to retirement is arguably one of life’s biggest transitions. Partnering with a professional during this change can be invaluable. Affiance Financial can provide guidance for navigating the complicated world of social security, Medicare, pensions, IRAs, and 401(k)s. Saving money for retirement is universal, but figuring out what to do when you get there is another story. Our financial planners will help craft specific strategies that align your efforts with your personal objectives and maximize your hard-earned retirement savings. 

Tax Planning

Our financial advisors take a proactive approach to reducing your lifetime tax liability, so that that your financial goals aren’t interrupted by taxes. With proper long-term planning, we can help you minimize taxes, allowing you to keep more of your hard-earned savings. Tax strategies our financial planning team employs include:

  • Asset allocation strategies for contributions and withdrawals
  • Roth contributions and conversions
  • Tax gain-loss harvesting
  • Charitable giving strategies

We can help structure your financial situation in a way that maximizes your resources, while taking steps to help protect you or your estate from tax liability. 

Education Planning

Our comprehensive financial planning services include helping you prepare for the ever-growing expense of secondary education. Our financial advisors can help you navigate 529 plans, and other options for college savings. Whatever your education goals include, we’ll help you set up a savings plan that provides flexibility and tax incentives that suit your needs. From birth to acceptance and anywhere in between, we’ll look out for your student and your finances.


Risk Management

It’s not a matter of if life will throw you a curve ball, but when. Unplanned events are a natural part of life, but that doesn’t mean that you need to be caught unprepared. Our financial planning professionals will evaluate your unique needs and recommend insurance policies that create an appropriate safety net for life’s unknowns. We coordinate life, disability, long-term care, and critical illness policies to design an insurance portfolio customized to your needs.

Estate and Legacy Planning

Our estate and legacy planning services aim to preserve your wealth from one generation to the next. Our financial advisors work with you to communicate objectives, narrow down intentions, and prepare for legal documentation with an estate attorney. We offer both estate planning and legacy planning services, to help safeguard your current financials as well as your vision for future use. We place a significant emphasis on personalization, taking the time to understand your unique financial situation and to craft detailed plans that put your beneficiaries in a position to thrive.
