At PlanningWorks, our team works cooperatively with our clients’ other advisors, such as attorneys and accountants, to find the best strategies to each client’s financial problems or concerns. Our clients’ goals and interests always come first, and we find satisfaction in providing them with confidence regarding their business and financial lives.

Insurance is no longer only about PROTECTION – but also RETIREMENT. In the past, when riskier alternatives promised higher returns, insurance was used primarily for financial protection against foreseeable events like death, disability, and health care expenses. As those alternatives have proved much riskier than believed, many have refocused on the lifetime financial benefits of insurance as a retirement planning vehicle. Insurance is now seen as being an essential and proactive part of every financial portfolio. Insurance is helpful in getting to the end comfortably, not just for the end itself.


We help crystallize your goals and take action to get there. We protect what’s important to you and your family on a tax-favored basis, while ensuring you do not outlive your income.

At PlanningWorks, our role is to provide the foundation, through insurance, for families and businesses to maintain and grow their savings and businesses. Through careful investigation of needs and resources, and ongoing review, we assemble the building blocks for clients to live comfortably, and without worry.
