The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Founder, Victoria L Collier, Says It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year For A Retirement Account Financial Assessment
Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier describes the basics of a retirement account financial assessment and acknowledges that most people think it’s enough just to have a retirement account.
DECATUR, GA, December 16, 2019: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm’s website entitled “It’s A Great Time Of Year For A Retirement Plan Financial Assessment.” Ms. Collier encourages readers who have a retirement plan to seriously consider a thorough financial assessment.
Collier writes, “Holidays can often stir up quite a bit of financial distress along with the joy of the season.” She adds, “Especially for those who are nearing retirement and have not actually sat down to determine long-term financial needs.”
“As we draw to the end of another year and look toward the start of another,” says Collier, “this is a good time for people who haven’t established any kind of legal plan for long term needs to take that next crucial step.” She elaborates, “Find a reputable and experienced attorney who will do a financial assessment to determine if your situation is a good candidate for asset leveraging. In a thorough financial assessment you need to consider your tax strategies concerning retirement accounts.”
According to Collier, “Most people who have retirement accounts think that is all they need. And, when a crisis happens, they spend down their assets needlessly.” She goes on to say that, “If you work with an attorney to establish a plan before a crisis occurs, the financial stress is eliminated, and your retirement assets get to be used for your retirement.”
