A FINANCIAL WELLNESS PROGRAM
More than 88 million employees are responsible for managing their own retirement assets. However, it’s estimated that these same employees lose $100 billion every year due to investment mistakes! (1)
Investing right is hard. And it takes time to research, analyze and re-allocate. Employees have a job to do and lives to live…they don’t have a lot of time or interest to figure this stuff out. With so much money at stake (trillions), the demand for help is huge. That’s where the Retirement Solved financial wellness platform comes in.

“Analysis consists of looking at the same thing as everyone else and thinking something different.”
Many employees are really confused when it comes to figuring out “how much” and “how to”. In this 2nd step of our approach, we use data-driven analysis to discover if employees have enough of the “right stuff” in their retirement plan.
We call the program, Is My 401(k) Okay?
The personalized 401(k) assessment provides a comprehensive review of your 401(k) and then for only $79/year our cloud-based tool will manage your employee’s 401(k) or 403(b) and answer the below questions.
Everyone who participates in our e-classes or on-site workshops is also offered a complimentary 1-on-1 assessment from one of our affiliated advisors.
“There is no success without action.”
After the complimentary assessment with one of our affiliated advisors, employees can choose to continue the process. Additional analyses (including income/Social Security optimization, portfolio and tax analysis) are completed. Based on this information, an affiliated planner will build a customized plan. The number one goal of the 3rd step in our approach is to give employees the best possible “sustainable” retirement outcome. In this process, our affiliated advisors are a bit like mad scientists, experimenting with the data and math to come up with just the right “keep more” formula. The strategy has such a powerful impact that it can extend the life of a portfolio by 10 or more years.
“If you know you’re on the right track, if you have this inner knowledge, then nobody can derail your plans.”
Finally, affiliated advisors turn knowledge, analysis and strategy into action by guiding employees to proper conclusions and overseeing the implementation and ongoing review of their plan.
All of our affiliated Hybrid Retirement Advisors are carefully vetted and trained as “hybrid” retirement specialists which means they are licensed to implement balanced, objective plans with a proper mix of investments AND insurance solutions. We believe that extremist views can sabotage a retirement…while this “Middle Way” leads to wisdom and to having more in retirement. Our affiliated advisors are committed to putting your employee’s best interests above all else.
“I told my investment advisor I was planning to retire in two years and all he said was, ‘Good.’
I attended a Retirement Solved workshop at my office, had an assessment of my 401(k) plan and spent another 8 hours with a retirement specialist outlining my entire retirement plan. Now I have the knowledge and confidence to retire in 5 years. This is a heck of a lot better than ‘good’!”
We help your employees through three stages or retirement preparedness. Typically, we work with people in pre-retirement (ages 35-50), people getting ready to retire (ages 50-65) and those making the transition to and living in retirement (ages 65 and up).
For those nearing retirement, we offer a variety of important services to support the transition from accumulation of income to proper tax efficient income distribution. Unlike many other advisors, we focus your withdrawal strategy on minimizing taxes to as close to zero as possible. We also help people maximize their Social Security benefits and minimizing how much these benefits are taxed. Regardless of the stage your employees are in, Retirement Solved is best positioned to help your employees prepare and prosper in retirement.
