File-and-Suspend, Suspended When Special Care Is Needed: The Special Needs Trust Coaches A Fruitful Retirement: Social Security Benefit

In the game of chess, “best moves” are determined by developing a plan to advance toward victory while protecting valuable pieces from loss. Similarly, life’s financial “best moves” are determined by developing a comprehensive plan to achieve goals while protecting valuable assets.

At Fort Wealth Management, we understand that retirees face many important decisions that can affect their long-term financial success. Some of these decisions revolve around making investments that will help create a hedge against outliving their income, the impact of inflation, taxation, and rising healthcare costs.

Because over ninety percent of our clients are retirees with similar concerns, we are in an advantageous position to approach such challenges with experience and skill.
