Assess Your Current Finances
Before you create a financial plan for retirement, it’s important to take a holistic look at your financial life and take stock of what you already have. This allows you to see how far along you already are toward achieving your retirement goals. Knowing both where you are and where you want to be are essential to creating a solid financial plan for the future.
During this phase of retirement planning, your Advance Capital Management adviser works side-by-side with you to gather all of your financial information, including insurance and annuities, retirement accounts, investments, assets, and liabilities. We’ll use that information to develop a workable financial plan that’s designed to put you on a path toward your retirement goals.

That’s okay—lots of people feel this way. With a trusted Advance Capital Management adviser in your corner, you have a wealth of knowledge and experience working for you.
Completing this step often brings a huge sense of relief and helps address concerns about retirement.
