When your children are ready to join a college, if not planned ahead of time, educational expenses may
create a huge burden on your financial situation. You may choose to have Coverdell education savings account
(ESA) or the well know 529 Plan. But, there are certain limits and tax consequences of choosing either one of those.
So, please contact us to make the best choice for your children's educational financial future.
* Prior to investing in a 529 Plan investors should consider whether the investor's or designated beneficiary's home state offers any state tax or other state benefits such as financial aid, scholarship funds, and protection from creditors that are only available for investments in such state's qualified tuition program. Withdrawals used for qualified expenses are federally tax free. Tax treatment at the state level may vary. Please consult with your tax advisor before investing.

A 401(k) is a retirement savings plan sponsored by your employer.
It lets workers save and invest a piece of their paycheck before taxes are taken out.
Taxes aren't paid until the money is withdrawn from the account. 401(k) can be an excellent investment tool to
accumulate abundance in your retirement. 401(k) needs careful analysis of an employer's match, cost of transactions,
and list of securities offered.
Fixed annuity is a financial contract to accumulate capital on tax-deferred basis.
In exchange for a lump sum of capital, a life insurance company guarantees the principal investment besides
crediting you a guaranteed fixed rate of interest. Generally, capital is added during the "savings phase"
and received through the "distribution phase". Annuities are huge investment tools but one must consider
its tax consequences, withdrawal penalties, and other administrator fees.
* Fixed annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes. Gains from tax-deferred investments are taxable as ordinary income upon withdrawal. Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the issuing company. Withdrawals made prior to age 59 ½ are subject to a 10% IRS penalty tax and surrender charges may apply. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
If you max out your contributions in 401(k)s and IRAs, then variable annuity can be a way to enhance your
retirement savings. Each person has different financial needs and goals, and thus,
it is very important to consider all factors before finalizing on an annuity contract.
Variable Annuities have the potential to provide more returns than fixed annuity but has much more risk too.

They have fees and charges, including mortality and expense risk charges, administrative fees, and contract fees. They are sold only by prospectus.

Gains from tax-deferred investments are taxable as ordinary income upon withdrawal. The investment returns and principal value of the available sub-account portfolios will fluctuate so that the value of an investor’s unit, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original value

IRA Rollover Roth
Your existing IRA can be rolled over to another provider without any taxes, if rollover happens in 60.

penalties based on your age. One must be separated from one's employer to roll your 401k into a Roth IRA.
