Jerry Adzima

Financial Advisor of GWN Securities

Does your “investment advisor” only talk about your investments as if that’s all that matters in retirement?

If you’re nearing retirement, you know it’s more than just how your investments are allocated. Your plan must consist of:

  • Creating a lifetime income plan that includes market downturns, inflation and taxation. And if one spouse passes, what will be the effect on income?
  • Social Security strategies, especially prior to the “Normal Retirement Age”.
  • Choosing a Medicare Supplements/Medicare Advantage plan, which is personalized to your situation, as well as avoiding surprise Medicare penalties from investment withdrawals.
  • Long- and Short-Term Health Care planning. Sometimes a short-term health care need is the most stressful, especially if you’re single.

Jerry seeks to review these major threats to a comfortable retirement and personalized strategies for reducing them. And you want it to be easy to maintain in the future.
