Sandra Keir, CERTIFIED FI NANCIAL PLANNER Practitioner
Chelsea Financial Services
OVERVIEW OF SERVICES
Sandy has dedicated her career to helping women business owners, professionals and corporate executives prepare for a financially secure retirement. Retirement doesn’t happen suddenly, it occurs in stages, and I find that women start to anticipate retirement in their early to mid 50’s and wonder, “Have I saved enough money to retire?” “How much income will I need to do the things that are important to me?” That’s when they decide to seek the advice of a retirement planning professional.
The retirement planning process doesn’t need to be long and complicated. I follow a three-step process to prepare you for a financially sound retirement. The first step is to get to know you, find out what’s important to you and understand what you want your retirement to look like. Then we’ll take an inventory of your savings and investments and run a plan to see if you’re saving enough now or need to save more. Next, we’ll bring all of your investments under one roof so we can manage them and make any changes that are necessary. Finally, when you actually retire, we build an Retirement Income Plan that allows you to do the things that are important to you, help you decide when to take Social Security and review your Medicare plan options. We’ll closely monitor your budget and cash flow throughout retirement, review it with you regularly and we’re always available to consult with you on important financial issues.
If you’re starting to think seriously about retirement, call or email me and let’s set up a time to talk.
