If you’re new to this website let me help you get started.
First, let me tell you a little about me.
I’m Craig Colley from Chicago, Illinois. I moved to California in 1977. I am married, have a remarkable son and daughter-in-law and four incredible grandkids. I have the privilege of getting up every morning and do my best to make a positive difference in someone's life.
I love what I do and believe it is one of the main reasons why I'm here on God's green earth. (Although they call it blue from space). I started my business back in 1981 and through the years my company has evolved into what it is today.
I primarily work with risk-averse individuals and business owners who are looking to receive a steady income stream after retirement and maximize their Medicare and social security benefits. My focus, specialty and passion is helping people that are nearing retirement in the next 5 to 10 years (or recently retired) with these common issues most people face.
Retirement Anxiety: Have I saved enough money to live comfortably for the rest of my life?
Social Security Stress: When to take my benefit? What are my options?
Medicare Health Plan Dilemma: What age, plan and carrier? What are the costs?
Long Term Care Quandary: It costs too much but I know I’ll probably need it? How can I afford it and am I healthy enough to qualify?
Market Volatility Risks: What are the available options to help protect me from a highly volatile stock market? How do I keep up with inflation over a potential 20-30 year retirement?
401(k) Rollover: How do I rollover my 401(k) when I retire? Can I reallocate some or all of my 401(k) now?
Annuity Apprehension: Are annuities a good deal or bad deal? I have heard they are what social security and pensions are based on. I like those so how can they be bad?
Do I still need Life insurance? Do I keep or cancel my plan or start a new one? Should it be Term, Whole or Universal life?
To assist you with these questions I have designed this website to be an extensive free resource for you, your family and possibly your business as well.
I have posted many articles addressing these topics.
