Is an annuity right for you?

Is an annuity right for you

Annuities have been in insurance agents' and financial advisors’ toolkits for decades. It’s a product designed to provide a steady income stream for retirees. It’s no secret that annuities have been a popular option, but are they always the best investment choice? Here’s the rundown of the pros and cons of annuities. Let’s see if they could be suitable for your financial strategy.  Firstly, it's crucial to understand that every financial strategy has its place, including annuities. Many people value the relative financial security annuities can provide. However, annuities come with several drawbacks. One major issue is the lack of liquidity – meaning once you invest money in an annuity, you are often limited as to how and when you can get it out. At the very least, they’ll likely have a surrender charge. Some have even more limitations – like how much they can withdraw each year!  Often, these products aren’t fully explained at the time of purchase, leading to confusion and frustration down the road. By the time you encounter an issue, the original salesperson may no longer be available to assist, leaving you to navigate the complexities on your own. So, there can be many challenges annuities offer, but how would investors know? Annuity companies are required to report all details to a third-party service. We can access these tools and provide you with a no-obligation annuity intelligence report. Thi

Planning for taxes on Social Security

Planning for taxes on Social Security

Recently, we've been hearing from people who have been enrolled in Social Security, seeing their taxes go up, and not understanding why. There are ways to keep more of your retirement income, but first, let’s look at how it can be taxed. We know that Social Security benefits aren’t tax-free. In fact, up to 85% of the benefits you receive each year could be subject to tax, depending on your household income. Moreover, 100% of your withdrawals from traditional IRAs and traditional 401(k)s will likely be considered taxable income. When making these withdrawals, we work closely with our clients to ensure they’re taking what they need but not enough to push them into the next tax bracket. We’ve recently encountered individuals who took advantage of high interest rates by putting their money in CDs or money market accounts. The interest on these is taxed at the same federal income tax rate as the money you receive from paid work, which is why people are seeing their income tax rates jump into the next bracket. That's why it's crucial to collaborate with a tax professional to develop a strategy to mitigate that sudden increase, just like we would with IRAs or 401(k)s. Furthermore, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 is set to sunset on Jan 1, 2026, which could exacerbate the problem further. When the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 ends, this means tax rates will revert to their previous higher levels. The act doubled the standard deduction and

  Workers are not new to the idea of saving as much money as possible for retirement. However, there is less conversation about spending the money they’ve worked hard to save, and that shift can cause stress in any retiree's life.  Major worries among retirees include not being able to spend as much as before retirement, not being able to leave money to beneficiaries, facing unknown healthcare expenses, and outliving their money. If you don’t have a strategy in place to help pay for these expenses, you could end up making a mistake that will cost you more in the long run.  For instance, we talked to a client who wanted to add an addition to her home. Her original plan was to take the money from her IRA to pay for it, which would have been close to $150,000 before tax.  If she proceeded with that, she would have increased her tax bracket, increased taxes on her social security, and increased her Medicare premiums. For example, her Medicare premiums alone would have increased by over $5,000/year. However, because we were able to coordinate her strategy with our in-house tax team, we were able to suggest a better alternative strategy and engineer a solution that fit her specific needs. We took about one-third of the money from her IRA, which kept her tax bracket and premiums the same. Then, we worked with her to get a home equity line of credit or HELOC. Finally, we were able to use dividends from her portfolio– which

If you're anything like most Americans, healthcare costs can be a big concern when you're planning for retirement. That's why it's essential to keep them in mind as you're getting ready for your golden years. One common error we notice is people assuming their healthcare expenses will be covered by Medicare in retirement. The truth is, a single 65-year-old could need approximately $157,500 saved after tax to cover health care expenses in retirement, according to a report by Fidelity. And that number jumps to $315,000 for an average retired couple age 65.1  Those figures hinge on various factors such as your work duration, retirement timing and location, health condition, and life expectancy. Nonetheless, it could serve as a valuable target to strive towards. Another common pitfall we notice is the consistent underestimation of the need and the costs associated with long-term care. Although the extent of long-term care required varies for everyone, data from the Administration on Aging paints a striking picture: at least 70% of individuals aged 65 or older today will inevitably find themselves in need of some level of care. Every year, Americans are shelling out a whopping $475.1 billion for long-term care. Surprisingly, Medicaid only covers 42% of these costs. This means you'll probably be responsible for a significant portion of the bill, making it crucial to plan ahead. Another important thing to note is Ohio's latest updates regarding

Given the upcoming presidential election in 2024, we thought it would be a great time to look at data from prior election cycles.  We think minimizing emotions and focusing on data is critical when investing.  As can be seen in the charts below, whichever party holds office has not typically had much bearing on investment performance over time. Source: BlackRock   Given this data, we encourage investors to try to tune out the political noise as best as possible in 2024 while maintaining exposure to the market.  There will no doubt be volatility throughout this election year, but if history is any guide, staying invested regardless of the election rhetoric and outcome is likely to reward patient investors.   Should you have any questions about your individual portfolio, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our team members or your advisor.

It's like trying to pass through a jungle of expenses – health care, taxes, and long-term care costs all taking a piece of the hard-earned nest egg you've been building for ages.

We’ve been working with private and corporate clients for nearly 30 years. Every year at this time, we meet new clients who want to drastically overhaul their finances, and set themselves up for increased wealth in the New Year. We’ve put a list of 5 resolutions that we always share and that you can put to work for you, too. Resolution No. 1 First things first. The base of any good financial plan is insurance because it helps you control risk. You can have the best financial plan in the world, but if something happens to you or your family, you need to be protected to keep your plan in solid footing.  You first want to take the time to make sure all your insurances are in proper order. This includes Life insurance, disability insurance, and even property and casualty. Because we specialize in working with retirees, long-term care is especially important to our clients. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 70% of people aged 65 or older are likely to need long-term care at some point.  Finally, you may want to consider an umbrella policy, especially if you have rental or vacation homes.  Resolution No. 2 Your financial goals, both long and short term, should be driven by your personal goals – whether that’s providing for children and grandchildren, sending them to college, passing the family business to the next generation, or preparing for your own retirement and the traveling you want to do, you should

Strategies to help your favorite charity and your bottom line

The end of the year is the time when people are looking to show gratitude by donating to their favorite charities or special causes that are important to them. But like any financial decision, you should take a moment to see if there are any tax benefits or strategies to consider that can maximize your giving efforts.  The first strategy to consider is a Donor Advised Fund. These have two main tax advantages. First, you become eligible for an income tax deduction of the full fair market value of the asset, up to 30% of your adjusted gross income (AGI) for gifted securities, and 60% of your AGI for cash. It also eliminates capital gains taxes on long-term appreciated assets if they’ve been held for longer than a year. The second strategy that can help benefit a charity – as well as your own finances – is a Qualified Charitable Distribution or QCD. QCDs can be a great option for those 70 ½ or older and allows you to contribute money directly from your IRA to your preferred charity. You’re allowed to give up to $100,000/year. The advantage is that this reduces your AGI, which affects things like Medicare, Social Security, and various other tax credits and deductions. It may even help you reduce your income taxes. It can also help you offset any additional income you have if you’re over age 72. Another charitable deduction that’s available is the Ohio Scholarship tax credit. It’s a $750/person non-refundable credit you ca

Key Takeaways: We are changing our allocations to slightly overweight U.S. quality stocks, seeking to capitalize on the recent market pullback and position for potential upside surprises in U.S. economic growth and corporate earnings.   We are leaning into U.S. high-quality stocks expressing a high-conviction preference for the largest cap stocks in the U.S. that appear to have attractive growth profiles.   We plan to decrease our exposure to Europe, moving underweight international Developed Market (DM) stocks due to weakening corporate earnings signals and more pronounced downside vulnerability to potential rising energy prices and geopolitical turmoil.   We are underweight bonds and overweight cash and short-term instruments that offer very attractive yields. The ghost of September's past haunted markets once again in 2023 and has carried over. This notoriously weak seasonal period - combined with rising rates and declining liquidity - saw stock and bond prices press lower. The S&P 500 Index, for example, is off its late summer highs by almost 10%, and the Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index is down a similar amount from its earlier highs. We are potentially facing an unprecedented third year in a row of bond market losses.  Overall, it has been a challenging year for investors with only the largest stocks doing well while most equity and fixed-income styles are flat to down.

Are you frustrated with your bank savings interest rates? We have a few options to get your money working harder for you.    When it comes to building a robust and diversified investment portfolio, there's more to consider than just individual equities and real estate. CDs and bonds are often overlooked but can be invaluable assets in any investor's toolbox, especially at today’s historically high rates.    Generally speaking, the S&P 500 return is 10% annually on average since 1957, according to Seeking Alpha1. But in a year with market uncertainty, constant volatility, and rising interest rates, a smaller return with reduced risk may be a preferable option to some. Because of elevated interest rates, there are both CDs and bonds that are paying in the 5.5%- 7.2% range2. And the Fed’s future path is uncertain – these rates may increase over time.      CDs are fixed instruments, so any rate increase won’t affect those you hold now. But you can stagger your purchases and build a CD ladder, which allows you to layer new CDs at increasing rates so that you may be able to benefit from rising interest rates.    This is possible because all CDs have a term – a fixed contract date – and different interest rates will be offered for different durations. CDs also have the advantage of being FDIC-insured up to $250,000.     That brings us to our other strategy, bonds. The FDIC insura

We have received questions recently regarding the U.S. Dollar and countries like Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) potentially developing alternative currencies and financial institutions. While we agree that the U.S. fiscal and monetary situation has deteriorated over recent years, and it is likely that China and Russia in particular are pushing to find alternatives to the U.S. Dollar and financial institutions, we do not view this as an imminent threat to the global economy or your investment portfolio.     The U.S. Dollar dominates global trade flows and we do not expect this to change in the near term. It’s estimated that the total value of global trade in 2022 was $32 trillion. The U.S. Dollar was 88% of those trades1. That is only down from 90% in 19881. Further, a reserve currency like the U.S. Dollar must be deep enough to support such large demand, be overseen by a country that can support large current account deficits, has a clear rule of law, does not impose capital controls, and supports property rights. To us, none of the BRICs demonstrate this resiliency. As such, we believe the U.S. Dollar remains the world’s reserve currency for the foreseeable future.     We think maintaining a diversified portfolio of U.S. and International stocks and bonds is the best defense against any potential actions by these countries, which is how we have invested your

When we think of economic indicators, our minds typically go to the state of the housing market, inflation or unemployment rates. Nevertheless, as of late, there have been some surprising economic drivers originating from unexpected sources.  To understand this sensation, look no further than Taylor Swift’s “Eras” tour and the “Barbie” movie. The blowout success of Swift’s tour combined with the record-setting box office success of the “Barbie” movie is showing up in microeconomic aggregates.   The Federal Reserve’s historic rate hikes haven’t brought on a recession yet. Right now, we’re sitting in what’s known as a “Goldilocks economy,” where it’s not too hot and not too cold. Currently, it looks like consumers are prioritizing experiences and entertainment over buying things. That’s evident when looking at Swift’s tour, which is estimated to generate $4.6 billion in consumer spending in the United States alone1. Fans of Swift are spending money on hotel rooms, merchandise and dining out at restaurants. Some fans are dolling out money for custom outfits, manicures and hairstyles. Businesses are also creating special Swift-themed items for fans to buy. Fans are even visiting local museums, which led to The Country Music Hall of Fame having the best month in its 65-year history. The museum sold 114,000 tickets the month Swift had her Nashville

In a major shift, a new IRS ruling has tightened the regulations surrounding irrevocable trusts and the step-up basis. In the past, families have been utilizing irrevocable trusts to protect their assets from spend-down to still qualify for benefits like Medicaid and VA Aid. Also during this time, it was not clear if assets passing to beneficiaries through an irrevocable trust would receive a step-up in basis, which eliminated any capital gains taxes that would otherwise be owed.  Historically, assets that individuals sold or transferred during their lifetime have been taxed as capital gains, based on the appreciation in value that occurred over time. The capital gains owed are predominantly calculated by comparing the asset's value at the time of purchase with its value at the time of transfer. An exception to the obligation of capital gains taxes comes when the owner of the assets dies, and the assets pass to their beneficiaries. The beneficiaries receive a step-up in basis, therefore they inherit the assets as if it had been purchased at the current fair market value instead of the value of the assets at the original time of purchase. This eliminates any capital gains, and no taxes become due. The new IRS ruling has tightened the regulations surrounding irrevocable trusts and the step-up in basis. According to the updated guidelines, assets held within certain irrevocable trusts will no longer receive the benefit of a step-up in basis upon the grantor's

For older Americans, leaving retirement savings to their grandchildren without also leaving them a big tax bill is becoming harder under new rules that took effect in 2020.  Previously, heirs other than spouses had decades to draw down inherited retirement accounts. After the rules change, now they must do it within 10 years.  To maximize their family’s after-tax wealth, grandparents are changing their estate plans and creating new trusts. The timing change also has grandparents making a series of Roth conversions or big generation-skipping lifetime gifts. These choices make sense with the amount of money and taxes that are at play. According to the Investment Company Institute, Americans held $12.5 trillion in IRAs as of March 31, 2023 and 52% of households headed by someone 65 or older have one.    By choosing to leave a Roth IRA, you avoid some of the problems of the accelerated tax hit from an inherited traditional IRA since those can cause a big tax bill, especially if distributions fall during the heir’s highest earning years. Minor grandchildren may also need to file a tax return to report the IRA payouts, and the income could be taxed at the parents’ rate.  However, because of the 10-year payout period, there is a risk that your heirs will spend the money quickly.  Other options to consider when planning your legacy is to start making lifetime gifts to grandchildren as soon as they are born. That can look like pay

The idea of saving as much as possible during your career while making wise investments to have a comfortable retirement is nothing new for workers. But if you don’t consider a tax strategy with that plan, it can derail any retirement.  Many workers are able to get company stock either as part of their compensation or through the company’s 401(k) program and these are the stocks you want to pay attention to so you don’t lose money in taxes.  Typically, when people retire, they roll all of their 401(k) to an IRA and everything you paid for that company stock inside the 401(k) and all the appreciation through your working years will be taxed at your personal income rate when you take money out to supplement your retirement.  Instead, if you use the Net Unrealized Appreciation – or NUA – rules, you can roll the stock out of the 401(k) and pay ordinary income taxes only on the cost basis, or what you paid for the stock through the years. Then, if done correctly, you can have the appreciation of the stock taxed at the much lower capital gains rates. For most people, this could cut your tax bill almost in half. For example, let’s say that you have $300,000 of company stock in your 401(k), that you paid $100,000 for. You roll the stock out of your 401(k) to a non-IRA account. You will pay taxes on the first $100,000 at your ordinary income rate, but the additional $200,000 would be taxed at your capital gain rate, which ca

Postnuptial agreements come to Ohio

Postnuptial agreements come to Ohio

May 04, 2023 Category: Postnuptial, Prenuptial, Agreements, Nuptial, Finance

Most people have heard of a prenup – or prenuptial – agreement, but a new law in Ohio will now allow for a postnuptial agreement.  A prenuptial agreement is an agreement a couple enters into before marriage describing how their assets will be divided on divorce or death. However, once you were married, you could not amend or terminate the prenuptial agreement or enter into any agreement regarding the division of assets. Until now, all other states besides Ohio and Iowa allowed for an agreement after marriage to either amend the prenuptial agreement or have a whole new agreement describing how assets will be divided on divorce or death. But now that Senate Bill 210 has been signed into law, married couples in Ohio can go forward with a postnuptial agreement.  There are a couple of scenarios that a postnuptial agreement could lend itself to.  For example, at the beginning of a marriage, the husband and wife were about equal in finances and agreed in a prenuptial agreement that each would keep their own assets. Then they have three children and for twenty years the wife stays at home raising the family and the husband grows his business to be a very valuable asset. The wife might want some part of those assets since she lost the opportunity to grow her assets.  In that case, a postnuptial agreement could provide that she shares in some of the growth of the husband’s assets. In another scenario, let’s say parents want to give a
