We specialize in helping individuals develop their personalized retirement strategies. If you are approaching retirement or already retired, we can help. We create personalized strategies to meet your needs and overcome the obstacles you’re challenged with in retirement.

At Ascutney Financial Group, we strive to educate our clients about all the financial concepts and products available to them. We try to take the mystery out of insurance products, estate conservation, and preserving wealth.

We know there are many challenges facing the retirees and one of the biggest concerns for some is outliving their money. Longevity risk can derail anyone’s retirement strategy, so we focus on money management, as well as filling your income gap in retirement.

client solutions
How can Ascutney Financial Group help with your financial strategy?
Every client has unique financial needs. Even if you don’t see a service you’re looking for on our site, give us a call and ask us anything you’d like.

Now, more than ever before, creating a strategy for your income in retirement is crucial for a successful future. Things are always changing, with emerging technology, changes to the economy, and even how you choose to spend your money.

We’ve found that the majority of pre-retirees that visit us don’t have a pension, and one of their main concerns is outliving their money in retirement. There are a lot of companies out there, and not all are created equal. Here at Ascutney Financial Group, we carefully look at all the options to find the right solutions for you.

We believe that a secure retirement isn’t impossible to achieve. We take the time to talk you through the entire process. We will work with you to build the right strategy to create income throughout your retirement years.

You deserve a retirement that lets you live the lifestyle you’ve always imagined, and we’re here to help you achieve that goal.

We know that protecting the wealth you have accumulated during your retirement years is one of the most important goals you have. This is not an easy task as there are many areas to protect against. We will work to create a personalized strategy that takes market losses, liability losses and long term-care expenses into consideration.

At Ascutney Financial Group, we’re here to help you create an enduring legacy for the ones you love. We believe that a sound estate plan should ensure that your assets are passed on to your intended beneficiaries, while paying the least amount of taxes possible and avoiding probate.

With the costs of tuition rising, planning effectively for paying college tuition has never been more important. While working with us, we can put together a strategy that will help bring you financial assurance when your family is ready to take on that next life adventure.

Understanding the Social Security system can be a daunting challenge. With so many different options, on when and how to file, it’s hard to know which is the best filing strategy. We will help guide you to your optimal filing strategy, based on your specific situation.
