Individual 401(k) Plan Advising

& 403(b)

& 457

Responsibility is on YOU to manage your workplace retirement plan, but YOU aren't the expert. 

Luckily we are!

Did you know that earning or saving an extra 1% in your plan can mean the difference between retiring comfortably, retiring early, or maybe it has you afraid of running out of money?

For example, you have $50,000.  If it earned 7% for 30 years you will have $405,824 (compounding monthly).  But if it were 8%, it could grow to $546,786!! 


How would your plan look differently with an extra 1% each year?

Your 401(k), 403(b), or 457 portfolio includes a variety of investment options. These are designed with risk tolerance and age in mind (as with any investment plan) but a completely hands-off approach may result in missed opportunities for growth for your hard-earned retirement funds.

Are you asking yourself these questions?


Which investments in my 401(k) should I choose?

Am I contributing enough to reach my goals?

What if the market changes, do I change my investments?

How often should I adjust or rebalance by 401(k) investments?


Each question is critical and without answers could cost you thousands in lost potential. Your 401(k), 403(b), or 457 portfolio includes a variety of investment options that can be confusing and complex. Implementing a complete hands off approach often results in missed opportunities for growth and results that may not be in line with your financial goals.
