It’s That Time of Year

The holidays are upon us.

You’re supposed to be reviewing your personal finances and setting company goals for 2024. But in reality, you just want to go on vacation. This holiday season, get ahead of your advisors and family members.

So…the next time someone asks if you have an estate plan with a strong life insurance strategy in place, be that person that can quickly end the conversation with that tacit smile that says, “Yes.”

40 years of trust by thousands of families and business owners.

Conducting a comprehensive life insurance review is one of the most important exercises you can complete.

Having an estate plan with an up-to-date life insurance strategy is integral to everyone’s future. Over the holidays, ask yourself:

  • What would happen to my family and business if I were no longer here?
  • Am I using life insurance to get the most out of tax planning?
  • Are there ways to improve my plan or are there new plans worth considering?
  • When was the last time I had a complete life insurance audit?

Why Us?

At Risk Resource, we believe that everyone deserves peace of mind from planning ahead. We know that not everyone has complete and updated business and estate plans. Without a holistic plan in place, life can feel like a house of cards. Their families, businesses, and the families that depend upon their businesses rely on them. They know that life has uncertainties, but feel reluctant to take action because the task of planning can seem daunting. It doesn’t have to be that way.

Our mission is to protect families and businesses from life’s challenges through thoughtful planning and insurance strategies. We do this through time-effective yet thorough succession and estate planning while utilizing comprehensive life insurance solutions. This allows us to ensure that our clients can live life to the fullest knowing their loved ones and all that they’ve worked hard for are protected. We believe that every life is precious and that planning for the unexpected is an essential part of responsible living.
