PUBLIC SECTOR PENSIONS
Get Your Personalized Pension Report 
See What Your Annual Pension Will Be In Retirement
If you are a member of a public pension plan in any of the 50 states, we can create a customized pension report specific to you. You will see what your annual pension would be at any age in retirement, your estimated social security (if you are eligible), what your reduced pension income would be if you wanted to retire early, how inflation will impact your pension & retirement income and what your retirement income gap will be in the future. 
Is Your Public Employee Pension Enough For a Comfortable Retirement?
A Pension is a Great Perk and Might Provide a Nice Padding For a Comfortable Retirement, But is it All You Will Need?
Pensions are a complex and tricky subject. They are well liked by public sector employees and often considered the golden standard of retirement benefits. However, they can also provide a false sense of security and safety leading recipients to believe that supplemental saving and investing is unnecessary. However, beware that this can be a dangerous outlook...(Click To Read More).
Just How Are Our State Pension Systems Faring? 
State Funding Ratios Over Time
See the evolution in funded ratios for state pension plans from 2001-16. The video report shows how the funded status of defined benefit pension plans have evolved over a 15 year period. A funded ratio is simply a measurement of how much a pension plan has saved relative to the benefits it has promised, the percentage is calculated by dividing the market value of assets by the actuarial value liabilities (i.e., the net present value of promised pension checks)(Courtesy of The Reason Foundation).
SUPPLEMENTING YOUR PENSION

OUR FOCUS
Retirement Income
Will You Be Able To Truly Retire?
What if you could supplement your pension with a second guaranteed, pension-like income stream that would last your entire life? That’s exactly what we do for our clients. We have many options available for retired first responders and those that are nearing retirement to create supplemental retirement income streams using assets they already have, such as a 457b or an IRA. We all know that public pensions are not quite enough to sustain living expenses in retirement; and we see public employees now more than ever having to work second careers in order to make ends meet in retirement. We love the opportunity to help our brothers and sisters better plan for retirement and to ensure that they have adequate retirement income. 
Maintaining Cash Flow
It Is Crucial To Have Increasing & Sustainable Cash Flow That Outperforms Inflation & Is Protected From Market Losses
Our retirement strategies can offer guaranteed, pension-like income (to supplement your government pension) that can increase each year to help offset inflation. This helps to ensure that your income is not losing value over time and that you can maintain the same standard of living 10, 20, or 30 years from now. 
Filling The Income Gap
It Is Important To Understand What Your Retirement Income Gap Will Be & Take Proactive Steps To Bridge The Gap
Many public pensions no longer offer a cost of living adjustment benefit. With inflation averaging 3% per year, how are you filling that income gap?   The average first responder is living for 20-30 years in retirement. Will your pension have the same buying power in 20 years? 
Legacy & Estate Planning
Leave A Legacy For Your Loved Ones & Ensure That Your Estate Is Protected
We make sure that you are properly insured for any situation to include death, disability, critical illness, chronic illness, and incapacitation. We can also assist you in obtaining a death benefit for your children, grandchildren or other family to provide a substantial legacy for your loved ones and to also ensure that your final expenses are covered.

ATTENTION: FIRST RESPONDERS THAT ARE RETIRED OR WITHIN 10 YEARS OF RETIREMENT
Who Else is Going to Have Your "6" in Retirement?
The sad reality is that public sector pensions are not looked upon favorably by politicians or the general public. This coupled with pension funding deficits do not perpetuate feelings of hope and peace of mind for the future.

Now that your 25 year career has ended or is coming to an end, have you fulfilled your true passions? Are you working a second career that you truly love? Are you simply working at a job in order to supplement your income or to pay for costly retirement benefits?

What if you could supplement your pension with a second guaranteed, pension-like income stream that would last your entire life? That’s exactly what we are doing for our clients.
