RETIREMENT INCENTIVES/BUYOT

We cannot comment on what does not exist. If and when the legislature passes a bill, the governor signs it and the mayor says okay, will we be able to comment.

 

CORONA VIRUS IMPACT

In the interest of protecting our clients and ourselves during this turbulent period, we are discontinuing face-to-face appointments until further notice.  We will use the available technologies of ZOOM, Face Time, FAX, email and phone to provide the best possible services under these circumstances. Payments may be made through your online banking, Zelle and Venmo.   If you are not up to date with the technologies we will need to reschedule you when some degree of normalcy returns (if any time is available).

NEW PROCEDURES FOR RETIRING

Different forms are now submitted differently than before Covid 19. Some forms are mailed, some are emailed and some are uploaded.  We can help you get it right.

VIRTUAL CONSULTATIONS

You will need a computer and a 3-in-1 printer (COPY-SCAN-FAX)

Please have available: stapler, highlighter, post-its, paper clips
