The OAR planning process includes 3 steps:

We first understand what is important to you in your retirement plan by discussing your retirement goals. We then gather comprehensive data using a cross disciplinary approach reviewing your entire financial situation. This includes a deep dive into your financial statements, Will and other estate documents, employer based retirement plans, employer based insurance, private insurance, health care insurance, Social Security benefits and possible inheritance and or other sources of future income. We gather the most recent 3 years of tax returns to understand your current and future tax liability. In addition, we analyze your current budget to understand spending habits and discern needs versus wants. This approach puts into focus your current financial and estate landscape.

We utilize our best in practice software to analyze your current investments uncovering investment allocations, cost, and risk. In addition, we use industry leading financial planning software inputting your goals and data to design a tailored plan that will achieve your goals for years to come. 

Based on the outcome of our analysis, we design an implementation strategy that comprehensively address all aspects of your financial and estate plan. This includes a clear investment plan to carry you through retirement identifying ways to efficiently transfer wealth to the next generation by limiting your taxable liability and eliminating or simplifying the estate probate process.  We plan for long term care needs in retirement by reducing your financial risk for nursing home care.
