NewRetirement Advisors

Every plan is different. NewRetirement Advisors uses a process that ensures we collaborate on your financial journey.

Retirement Plan Checkup

Discovery Meeting

We will always start by understanding your current situation and goals to determine if we are a good fit to help you navigate the future. After determining that we want to work together, you will enter your plan data and receive as much help as needed to complete the process.

First Consultation

We will review the plan and projections as it is entered. We will confirm that your data is accurate and complete. We’ll assess your plan status compared to your goals and clarify any questions you may have. Your advisor will then analyze your plan data and develop recommendations.

Plan Delivery

We will review a customized plan of action that includes our observations and considerations that we believe will help guide you toward your financial goals.

Comprehensive Financial Plan Review

We will follow the same collaborative process as the Retirement Plan Checkup including a customized plan of action to guide you toward your financial goals. In addition, we’ll look at the plan with some of the following questions in mind:

  • What does my plan look like with a premature death of a spouse?
  • What if I become disabled?
  • What if my spouse needs long-term care?
  • My employer is offering new benefits, what should I choose?
  • What is the best way to plan for children’s or grandchildren’s education?
