401(k) and IRA Rollovers

When you leave a job or retire, you have a decision to make regarding your 401(k) money. While leaving those assets in the former employer’s plan is an option, a rollover can be a consideration.

This may include: leaving the funds in your existing plan, if permitted, or rolling them into your new employer’s plan, if one is available and rollovers are permitted. Each choice offers advantages and disadvantages, depending on your specific needs and retirement plan, such as the desired investment options and services, applicable fees, expenses, and withdrawal options, as well as required minimum distributions and tax treatment of applicable options.

Solutions for Businesses

Executive Benefits

The success of most businesses is tied into the talent, passion and work ethics of their key executives. Executive benefit packages can help you attract, motivate, and retain high-caliber employees and keep your company healthy and stable. Our agents can help you fund non-qualified plans, supplemental employee retirement plans, split dollar plans, and more.

Employee Benefits

Selecting the right benefit package is becoming increasingly important in retaining the best employees, and keeping them productive. Our agents strive to know and understand your complete financial situation and provide you with the highest quality of information, products, and services to help you reach your goals. Our clients rest assured knowing that they always have their interests at heart.

Focusing on your objectives, budget and culture, they work with you to custom design funding options for your group benefits, qualified retirement plans, and voluntary benefits plans to address your employees’ unique needs.

Succession Planning

Succession planning allows owners to leave their business on their own timeframe while preparing their company to be transferred to family members, key employees, an outside party, or even a charity. This must be done in a way that helps to achieve personal financial security, maintains harmony, and achieves maximum value for the business.

Key Person Insurance

Key person life insurance offers a death benefit that helps indemnifies an employer for the loss of one of its most important assets - the key person. This can help assure continuity of the business for employees, customers and creditors, and protects against losses in sales, momentum, and credit. It can also be used to help recruit and develop a replacement for the employee.

Funding Buy-Sell Agreements

A buy–sell agreement is a legally binding agreement between co-owners of a business that governs the situation if a co-owner dies or leaves the business, whether by force or by choice. A funded cross-purchase buy-sell plan utilizes life insurance to help ensure that the arrangement is properly funded so that there will be money when the event is triggered.

Funding Deferred Compensation

Deferred compensation is a written agreement between an employer and an employee where the employee chooses to have part of his or her compensation withheld by the company, invested on their behalf, and distributed back to them at a pre-determined point in the future. Deferred compensation can be used as a flexible way to attract and incentivize key employees.
