- Watch the news and market and fear for your portfolio but are too apprehensive and unsure to do anything
- Do not know or cannot find your retirement plan login information for your plan’s website
- Have good intentions to review and research your account, but life gets in the way, you just do not have the time
- Cannot remember the last time you rebalanced your portfolio
- Are invested 100% in the Money Market or Stable Value fund
- Invested in multiple target date funds (aka Freedom, Target Retirement…with a year behind it)
- Consistently chase the “hot fund(s)”

Yes. You can click visit the 'Review Risk Level' above to re-answer a risk questionnaire to determine if your risk tolerance has changed. Additionally, if you would prefer guidance, give us a call or schedule a consultation. It does not take long, but we can coach you through the process to help ensure you do not make an emotional decision that is not in your best interest.
At anytime we can review your retirement picture to help you understand how to improve it. You can request an updated BeOnTrack report, call or schedule a consultation to discuss your situation and questions. Should you be using the Roth? Increase your contribution or pay down your mortgage? We can help.
That's not a problem. While advisors can efficiently manage IRAs and brokerage accounts, company retirement plans (401k, 403b, 457b) are difficult for them. For the vast majority of advisors, you need to be sitting with them to receive advice. Therefore, many people choose to use our service for their company retirement plan so that advice is implemented proactively, not just when they have time to meet with their advisor.
