Planning Services

Tax rules regarding retirement plans are complex, as each plan has specific requirements and stipulations outlined by the IRS. Certain plans are not accessible to everyone depending on their income or age, while others may require withdrawals at a certain age. Some plans are taxed at retirement, while others are tax free. It’s important to understand the implications of your planning choices. At Lear & Pannepacker, we will:

  • Assist with estate planning through tax analysis and charitable giving and trust optimization
  • Assist with planning and correcting missed required minimum distributions (RMD)
  • Calculate optimal Roth conversion strategies including “back door” Roth contributions
  • Determine the optimal retirement plan for you and your family
  • Develop an approach for withdrawing funds from your retirement plan
  • Develop a budget that meets your financial planning goals
  • Develop a retirement plan, updating and adapting it to suit any changes in your life
  • Evaluate your financial situation
  • Identify and assist with insurance needs
  • Review your Social Security account to determine when to begin taking your benefits

Our team offers a wide range of comprehensive or segmented financial planning.  Our reports are targeted to your personal financial objectives.
