Our Process

At Stonebridge Financial Planning Group, LLC®, we always place your needs first. To strive for providing each client with the best possible, independent advice, we follow a cyclical financial planning process to pave the way to a stable financial future.

Step 1 – Identifying your needs: In our initial interactions, it will be of the utmost importance to gain a thorough understanding of your current financial situation.

Step 2 – Defining your goals: After establishing where you are in the present, we start looking into the future. At this stage of the financial planning process, it's vital for us to gain a clear understanding of your values and what you will need over the short- and long term.

Step 3 – Designing a plan, just for you: Using all the information we gathered in the previous actions, we will craft a customized plan to pave the way to your future financial objectives.

Step 4: Implementing your plan: Once we have presented your plan and ensured you understand it and are comfortable going forward, we will put your financial plan into action. You can rest assured that we will assist you in continuously monitoring its progress.

Step 5 – Reviews: Change happens, and this is why we do periodic reviews of your needs to see if it still aligns with your financial plan. This enables us to recalibrate your plan, if necessary and ensure that you are still on track to a solid financial future.

Independent Advice - Just for You

Our Services

Investment Analysis and Planning

As part of the financial planning process, we offer clients comprehensive reviews of their investments as a whole. After establishing your goals and needs, we will find investment vehicles that match your unique profile.

Our Investment Philosophy

Financial Estate Planning

The consequences of incomplete, or inadequate estate planning can be dire for your loved ones and intended beneficiaries. To ensure that your wishes are respected, we offer a financial estate planning service helping you review your wills and trusts to see if they are in line with your financial goals.

We also help you ensure that you have a thorough legacy plan in place for your family.

Retirement Income Planning

If you would like to maintain your lifestyle through retirement, it’s critical to know how much you will need to routinely withdraw from your retirement accounts to supplement your income from. It’s also important to have a thorough understanding of your Social Security and pension benefits. By conducting a thorough analysis of your current financial situation, and your retirement goals, we can develop a plan to help you make the most of your retirement.

Moreover, once you enter retirement, we can help you manage your income distributions aimed to so that your nest egg stays sustainable.

Tax Planning and Preparation

We provide Tax Planning as well as Tax Preparation services.  Tax mistakes can have far-reaching consequences to your financial well-being.  We help you stay up to date with all the tax changes to protect your hard earned savings.

Social Security Analysis and Planning

“When should I start receiving my social security benefits?” is a common question as you approach retirement. While there is no single best answer, we can help you make an informed decision when it comes to your social security benefits. Based on your individual circumstances, our Registered Social Security Analyst® can answers questions regarding the impact of the timing of benefits, working while receiving benefits, taxation issues, special considerations for widows and ex-spouses, and how to help protect benefits for your survivors, along with other questions you may have.

Insurance

Unexpected events, like accidents, serious illnesses, or untimely death, can have a significant effect on the financial well-being of you and your loved ones.

It often happens that clients are under- or over-insured. We offer complete assessments of clients’ insurance portfolios to ensure they are adequately covered. We provide access to Life and Long Term Care policies that are designed to protect your wealth and well-being when you need it most.

Saving for Education

Whether it's for yourself or your children, paying for education is often the most expensive and vital investment you can make to secure a successful future. We can help you select a suitable plan to make provision for this critical expense and to strive to give your children the financial head start you desire.

When Life Takes a Detour

Women in Transition

When significant changes hit your life, it usually involves complicated financial details. Women who find themselves in such circumstances are often faced with weighty financial decisions that will affect their future and the future of their families.

With the guidance of a financial professional, you can avoid potentially crippling financial mistakes.

Women need to be able to rely on a team of financial and legal professionals who will provide much-needed guidance through transitions like these. All too often, thousands of dollars can be lost by not addressing the investment and tax consequences of various legal decisions.

As CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) Professionals and Certified Divorce Financial Analysts® (CDFA®), we are uniquely qualified to work with women in transition and provide the necessary support.

At Stonebridge, we are committed to helping women demystify the financial complexities that accompany significant transitions in life. Working together, we will develop a plan that fits your life and gives you financial freedom and confidence going forward.

Typical questions that arise:

  1. You receive the house in a divorce settlement but who gets the mortgage interest deduction on their taxes?
  2. You may receive the investment account but will you have to pay taxes on it next year while what your former spouse received has no tax consequences?
  3. As a young widow is there a way to pull money out of your husband's IRA without penalties if you need the cash?


This information is for educational purposes only. It is not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, any tax, legal or investment advice. Please consult with your tax, legal or financial advisor prior to making any decision based on any specific information contained herein.

As if the emotional impact of divorce is not enough, the financial impact can even be more significant. One of our specialized service offerings is to help you develop a plan for all the financial aspects during this transitional phase and to help you build a strong financial foundation for the future.

We also offer support during divorce proceedings by assisting in creating Affidavits and Division proposals.
