Reach Your Goals TodayContact Us



Estate Planning Solution’s mission is to help business owners, families and individuals, minimize taxes, reduce expenses, and become stronger financially by making decisions within the context of a personal, written financial and retirement income plan.


Since 1994, our goal has been to help business owners, individuals, and families become stronger financially by helping them make appropriate financial decisions and select relevant financial products and services to implement them.


Addressing your financial concerns and providing a “macro” (am I doing everything that I should be doing?) and “micro” (is what I am doing appropriate for me?) assessment of your financial picture. Contact us today to schedule a no cost, no obligation consultation.


Maximizing Your 401(k) – Your Greatest Retirement Asset

For most workers, their 401(k), 403(b) or 457 plan is their largest retirement asst. And, for many, knowing how to allocate monies to the various plan options can be a source of frustration. The problem with 401(k)’s and similar plans, from my perspective, is that their success is linked to market growth. But, the market does not always go up.

We have partnered with Active 401K, who provides personalized allocation recommendations for participants in 401(k)’s and similar plans. Here is how it works: participants fill out a questionnaire based on their age, goals, and risk tolerance, plus certain market indicators, they receive specific allocations to the available investment options in their plan.

If you have any questions or require assistance, call our office at 623-537-3657.

Remember; investing always involves risk of loss and past performance is no guarantee of future results.
