There are five basic steps in our retirement planning process.
Step One: Initial consultation
This free, no-obligation consultation gives you a chance to talk with a Member Benefits’ financial planner who can assess your situation and recommend the direction you should take.
Step Two: Data gathering
Fill out a data gather package before this face-to-face appointment. Over the course of 2½ hours, you’ll review a sample analysis, sign a service agreement, pay the fee, go over documents, and identify, develop, and prioritize your financial goals and objectives.
Step Three: Analysis and plan development
In about a month’s time, our financial planner analyzes your information, develops strategies, and writes recommendations to meet your goals. You can request up to three scenarios for the planner to consider.
Step Four: Presenting the plan
At this face-to-face meeting, the planner will review the analysis, present the recommendations, and describe the specific strategies included in the retirement plan.
Step Five: Monitoring progress
Schedule follow-up meetings to monitor your progress and make adjustments to your plan as needed. As a Wisconsin public school employee, you are entitled to a free one-hour consultation each year which can be used to review your Retirement Income Analysis.
Our Retirement Income Analysis is a fee-based service. There are no product sales or commissions attached to the service. So you will get an unbiased analysis of your situation.
