Lots of people start with basic questions like: (1) How much savings do I need to retire? (2) How much to save for retirement? (3) How much do I need to save for retirement?

Financial Planning Medford
Our first step in financial planning and helping you succeed financially is to first get a starting point of where you are today financially. Are you on track to achieve your financial and retirement goals? Many people have no idea in the world. As we know for sure, before you can get to where you need to go, you first need to discover where you are at this time.
In our alignment with keeping things simple, we have produced a series of our own, custom retirement calculators like; a retirement savings calculator, a retirement planning calculator and various retirement planning tools that are super easy to use, yet very effective. Our simple retirement calculators are free to use and they are online, so you can log in and use them at any time it is convenient with you and your schedule.
Many of our clients use these all the time running various “what it” calculations to see how little changes in their financial planning can impact their net results. The first simple retirement calculator we suggest you start with could not be any easier to use. You simply enter in your age, the age you want to retire, the amount you currently have saved for retirement now, how much you invest on an annual basis, your desired yearly income during your retirement years, the approximate rate of return you are currently earning on your investments and the rate of return that you wish you will achieve during your retirement years. That’s it. Next you just click the calculate button.
The results of your inputs pull up instantly. It will clearly show you if you are on track to reach your retirement goals or not, and if not, it will show you exactly how far away you are in funds, years and percentages. If you’re not on goal, the calculator will even show you the four critical areas that you can change to insure you obtain your goals. Based on your findings you can go back and key in some different combinations of amounts and keep going back and forth and discover if you can reasonably make adjustments to reach your investment goals.
It’s really much fun to do. For most people it’s a real shocker. Knowing where you are right now and being honest about your current finances is half the battle.
Note: We work with quite a few high net worth people who love using our plans to grow their net worth and protect themselves from soaring tax rates, creditors, soaring fees and keeping their funds private and off the grid. However, lots of our clients consider themselves to be mostly average.
If you are not on track to achieve your goals, please don’t be discouraged. Today 61% of Americans fear running out of money during retirement more than they fear death itself! Our objective and our job is to work with you and help you get your finances on track and help you create a lifetime, tax-free retirement income that will last as long as you live.
Medford Financial Planners
As financial planners, usually our next step is to help protect you from spending more than you should on taxes and also protect you from what we think will be, future tax rate increases. Did you know that the amount most Americans spend on taxes is the single largest financial expenditure of their life? Lots of people have no clue, yet it is true for most of us. The average American spends more on taxes than they do on their mortgage payments, car payments and college for their kids, etc.
That’s why it is so important for us to focus on this major expense and reduce your taxes as much as you can. We believe that our main financial plan that we happen to call The Barefoot Retirement Plan is the single most powerful way to protect yourself and save on taxes that’s legally allowed in this amazing country of ours. It really is that powerful. In a nutshell, this is how our plan works.
You invest after taxed dollars to the program. Yes, unlike your IRA and 401(k) (which are called qualified plans) where you contribute pre-taxed dollars, our plan requires you to pay the tax on the money before you put them in. On the surface this may not appear as good as your IRA or 401(k) but please keep reading. We will clearly show you how our plan will blow away these other plans, bar none!
You funds then grow tax differed within your account. If you need the funds for any reason at all like emergency, an unexpected expense, an unexpected opportunity or investment, university savings or anything at all, you can simply take your funds out at any time. We will show you exactly how you will be able to access your funds at any time you wish with zero penalties, no fees and no taxes.
Then, when you retire, 100% of your retirement funds that you pull out to live on are completely and totally free of taxes. This is such a powerful thing. At the time this is being written, Bernie Sanders is running for President. He is advocating a 92% top Federal marginal tax rate. Yikes! Plus last week the US debt just surpassed the 19 Trillion mark. (If you look at our National Debt Clock, it will amaze you.) It only took us 13 months to go from 18 trillion to 19 trillion. With the way things are going now, most experts believe that the future tax rates will have no option but to rise sharply.
By setting up a Barefoot Retirement Plan you can 100% protect yourself from needing to pay any taxes on the funds you pull out. This one benefit alone can make or break most people’s retirement dreams.
Retirement Planning Medford
The next task we take in our retirement planning is to get you protected from losing money in the market. Second to taxes, market losses are the next big event that can ruin your retirement dreams and keep you working for much longer than you needed to. Many investors lost upwards of 50% of their funds in the Dot Com crash of 2000. Then, just as soon as many of them were just getting back to where they were before the last crash, we had the mortgage/housing market crash of 2007/2008 and many investors lost another 40% to 50% of everything.
Millions of hard working Americans were just getting ready to begin retirement. When the crash happened and they lost almost half of everything they had spent a lifetime creating, it was devastating. That is why the team at Oklahoma City Financial Planning Pros works so hard every day. We strive to get our clients 100% protected from market losses and crashes, and yes, it actually is possible.
With our unique plan you are completely guaranteed not to lose a single dime due to market downturns, losses or crashes. I cannot even begin to tell you how much peace of mind this makes possible to our clients. Imagine how much easier you could sleep at night knowing that you were totally guaranteed not to lose a penny in market declines. This one feature of the plan can make the difference between you having the retirement of your dreams or being wiped out.
When you get our plan set up, when the stock market goes up, we lock in your gains each year. When the market goes down, you lose nothing and your previous gains are locked in and protected from losses. Our unique plan is smart on steroids.
Wealth Management Medford
We also assist our clients with wealth management to insure they reach their investment and financial goals. One of the strong benefits of our unique and patented flagship program that we offer is that our program gives you the option, if you choose to use it, to leverage your returns and actually earn two different returns, on the same money, at the same time. Yes, we know the first time most people hear this, it sounds too good to be true and may even question if it is legal. We promise you this is squeaky clean and as legal as legal gets.
Until recently plans like ours have mainly been used by wealthy families, politicians and huge corporations. Believe me, they do know the best ways to protect their money from taxes and losses. That’s why they use these plans so widely. Now these plans are more available to the main stream and not just the rich.
Here is a high level look at how the leveraging option could work. Many of our clients choose our blended index option that has a zero percent floor and a 17% cap. So if the value of the indexes’ tracked goes up twenty percent in a given year, you earn seventeen percent on your money, and your gains are always locked in. Or, if the value of the indexes goes down 20%, you maintain your zero percent floor and suffer no losses at all.
You then have the option to borrow the majority of the funds from your account. (You have to do this correctly and we’ll show you how), and you can then invest that money into ANYTHING under the sun that you wish. You don’t have to ask permission from anyone to do this. You are not limited to a list of investment options. You get to choose to put your funds into anything you want or need to, no problem.
Let’s use an example. Say you have 100k in your Barefoot Retirement account. That 100k earns between zero percent to 17% each year. Then you decide to borrow $80,000 from the account and put it into a great real estate deal you found. Since you borrowed the funds from your account and did not take them out, your account value remains $100,000 and you continue to earn the zero percent to 17% on the entire 100k account value.
Additionally you earn whatever return you get on your 80k that you put into your real estate investment. So you are affectively earning two different returns on the same funds at the same time. This is a powerful strategy and can have a very positive impact on your total returns.
We could go on and on about all of the many benefits of this patented plan but we are limited in space here. The best way to get more information on this plan is to give us a call. We’re happy to talk with you and answer any of your questions. More importantly we are happy to schedule a free 15 minute phone consultation with you to best determine if this might be a good fit for you and if so, we can run some numbers and show you exactly what a Barefoot Retirement Plan would look like for you.

Give us a call right now and at least take the first step towards what could be the best move of your life. We’re looking forward to talking with you.
