Complimentary Financial Review

At Summit Planning Group, we believe that the first step in creating a successful financial plan is a comprehensive financial review. We'll discuss where you are now, as well as upcoming life changes and your retirement goals. With an analytical eye, we'll review your existing portfolio, looking for areas of high risk and potential ways to improve your portfolio to give you the best chance of achieving your dreams. We will point out ways to improve your portfolio diversification, reduce your tax bill and protect you from the unexpected. Life insurance needs, retirement plans, IRAs, anticipated retirement income and cash flow are all areas that will be reviewed with the goal of making your money work most effectively for you.

long term care planning service from summit planning group near syracuse ny

Long-Term Care Planning

Long-term health care is the greatest health expense older Americans face. This is true because it is the only major health care expense that Medicare supplements or individual health insurance will not cover.

Based on our own 2020 survey, nursing home care in upstate New York cost upwards of $170,000 per year. Faced with such exorbitant costs, many people can only hope to qualify for Medicaid. They are then forced to deplete their assets and dispose of possessions that they have earned through a lifetime of hard work.
