When Do I Need to Get Financial Planning Assistance?
It is important to get financial planning assistance as soon as you begin earning an income. When you are young and your salary has not yet climbed due to advancing in your job, you should be eligible to make the maximum contributions to tax-advantaged retirement accounts that phase out when you have a higher income. You can invest strategically in accounts that give you tax breaks and can take advantage of compound interest to help you achieve financial success.
You should also get financial planning help at any phase in your life if you do not already have a comprehensive plan in place for managing money, saving, and investing. Plans must be age-specific and tailored to your risk tolerance and future financial goals.
Developing a strategy for wealth management can help you to avoid becoming one of the millions of Americans who are saving too little for retirement. Investopedia reported median savings for people age 55 to 64 is just $104,000, even though these workers are likely going to retire soon and a nest egg of this size would result in only $310 in monthly income.
As your life evolves, your financial planning will also evolve, changing as your assets and family change. The key thing is to get started, get a plan in place in case something happens to you, and make modifications as necessary to maximize your chances of financial security. An experienced attorney can help.
What Kind of Financial Planning Help is Available?
Since everyone’s financial situation and money goals are different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to financial planning. It is important to get personalized advice specific to your income, goals for the future, family situation, and risk factors. German Law offers individualized assistance to all of our clients on a wide range of financial issues including:
- Setting retirement goals and using tax-advantaged accounts like IRAs and 401(k)s to achieve those goals. Our firm helps you to understand contribution limits and to choose the right tax-advantaged retirement accounts to get the biggest possible tax breaks for retirement.
- Setting other important financial goals, using the right types of accounts, and automating your savings to make meeting goals easier.
- Reviewing contracts and legal documents before you sign and providing advice on what your rights and obligations are under the contract.
- Reviewing financing agreements, including mortgage loans, to ensure loans are appropriate for your financial circumstances.
- Protecting assets during your lifetime using trusts and other legal tools.
- Facilitating the timely transfer of wealth to new owners after you pass away so you can leave a strong legacy.
