We decided to launch retirementplansareus.com because the client still needs a place to go to get an unbiased direction concerning their retirement plan. Even though we have been planning retirement plans and retirement exits for nearly 20 years it was important to create a dedicated site to service clients looking for only a retirement plan. I had one state worker who is in CalPERS share her frustration about having multiple places to find her retirement direction. She said well I have a 401k over at Savings plus via Nationwide and in that plan, she said she had a Roth portion and a traditional portion. She then said she has a pension that is within the CalPERS system to confuse matters even more. She said she used to work for a software company in Silicon Valley and she also was a barista for Starbucks while in college, where she has a small 401k, so she is confused when it comes to retirement. She has four retirement plans stretched across the state of California, yet she is concerned with her retirement distribution and has nowhere to turn to just talking about bringing all of her retirement plans together. She said she has moved passed the accumulation phase and is confused about the distribution phase and what it will look like. She believes social security is a part of that equation, but not sure, how that will look or what the payments will look like. We put a plan together for her through our myretirementexit.com brand, which included a consultation.
She is the type of client that is left behind in a merger. Her advisor or someone she has established a rapport with is now gone, due to attrition or overlap in duties. At retirementplansareus.com we wanted to address this problem. We wanted to create a place where it did not matter what plan you had or where it was at, we would bring all of the numbers together in an area and present a plan of distribution from all of the sources. We are still myretirementexit.com, which still consults, coaches, and guides everyday people to their retirement exit, but now we have a service squarely focused on the retirement plan only.
