Hourly Planning: full range of solutions
The fees for our Hourly Financial Planning services are based on the actual time needed to complete your plan. We will meet with you in person, converse by e-mail or phone, spend time analyzing your situation and doing the research needed so that we can create the specific solutions and recommendations needed to address your questions and create a plan for you.
You will meet with us at a Get Acquainted Meeting so that we may provide you with a firm quote of the fee. Our hourly rate is $220, and typical plans range from 8-20 hours.
Life tends to become more financially complex as it marches on. Accumulating more accounts and investments. A progressing career offering better but more complex benefits: stock options, RSUs, deferred compensation, an HSA, and more. Additional financial goals to accomplish. We see that reflected in the quotes we give for our hourly financial planning services.
If you are starting out with your first opportunity to invest in a company 401(k) and are wondering how to balance saving for a house, paying down student loans, and saving for retirement, you will have a fee quote below our typical range.
Conversely, you might be planning for retirement and have more complex needs: perhaps a dozen different accounts and pensions requiring election planning help. You might like to create a retirement income stream while coordinating income sources like deferred compensation plans, stock options/RSUs, Required Minimum Distributions from IRAs, and Social Security Maximization strategies. While we help a lot of families like this, you can see this fee quote has the potential to be above the typical range depending on the complexity of your situation.
