Meet Margaret

Meet Margaret

  • 72 Years old, recently widowed, three grown children: 1 local and 2 out of state
  • Margaret’s recently deceased husband, Roger, was the financial one in the family and Margaret never really got involved until now
  • Has life insurance proceeds and several investment accounts she inherited from Roger that she doesn’t know what to do with

How I Helped:

  • Introduced her to a support network for recently widowed spouses to give her a sense of community when she was ready
  • Identified what goals or bucket list items she wanted to pursue and developed financial plan around those things
  • Coordinated a hybrid in-person/virtual meeting with all children, the estate attorney and CPA
  • Consolidated all Roger’s accounts under one roof and showed her strategies she could use for her life insurance proceeds to create a guaranteed income stream and payoff all debts
