A few years ago, we were probably a financial adviser's worst nightmare. We could only answer about half of
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
's questions as far as where all our money was (many items had been moved, plus we had just physically moved houses and misplaced many documents in the process).
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
patiently walked us through establishing a baseline for what a healthy financial plan looks like today, and what we needed to to to prepare for our future. Within a few weeks, we went from only knowing where about 75% of our money was and should be, to knowing where every penny was and watched our portfolio grow.
He's very versed in the myriad of options available, and was able to provide
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
advice for not only managing our own finances, but how to do that in the context of owning our own small business.
He is always professional, unbiased, and responsive to inquiries.

In early November 2013 I began looking into a Cash Balance plan to enhance my office’s profit sharing and 401k plans. I was using the Third Party Administrator (TPA) Great Lakes Pension for my 401k and I looked at two other companies The Benefit Advantage (TBA) and The Retirement Advantage (TRA). Each of the three companies gave proposals for costs associated with setting up the Cash Balance plans (CBO) and ongoing annual costs associated with running the plans. Upon receiving the quotes, it appeared that TRA was the lowest. We had numerous email correspondences about the process and on November 13th I signed a contract to proceed to set up the plans using TRA. The front page of the contract showed that I would us be executing this agreement with TRA, through their agent

,
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
the financial advisor and Great West, the fund management company.
However, on November 18 (15 days after I signed the contract),
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
wrote that he was unable to get back with me sooner because he was traveling, but he needed to inform me that the fee structure that was quoted would be different than what was presented. My apologies for the lack of immediate feedback. I’m traveling this week in the UP. I understand the concern with the difference in cost between the standard and custom design. I did not present the custom pricing based on the conversations surrounding the $100k contribution goal Dr.
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
expressed. I do not want anyone to think that I purposely did not disclose the fees associated with the custom plan design. With that said, I have reached out to actuarial partner,
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
, Inc. to discuss the reasons surrounding fees and if there is anything we can do to accommodate Dr.
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
. Please see his email below and the attached marketing piece that discusses Standard v. Custom designs. I will follow up with a revised proposal that illustrates the $3000 set up and annuals of $4200. I hope the decision is to continue to partner with The Retirement Advantage and Great West. If I can be of further assistance or additional information is required, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

He attempted to explain that their actuarial partner,
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
set their fees differently for different types of plans. I had my office manager tell
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
to hold off on processing our plans through TRA until we had more clarity about what appeared to be a Bait and Switch. Then, in early December
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
notified me that since
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
would be calculating the actuary tables, they would also have to manage the funds within their own proprietary funds. That is, we would not be able to use Great West. Understand that the fees associated with
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
funds are exorbitant and the company is poorly rated. So, we would have to pay more to have the plan managed as well as pay more for each fund within the plan and endure much higher risks.

I would think that since the original contract is signed between a specific set of parties, and that one of those parties, namely Great West was disqualified by TRA, the original contract, dated November 3rd would be
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
and void.
Regardless, TRA sent me to collections to obtain $3,500 for their services even though they will not be handing any of my moneys.

My husband was arrested for having drugs in the car with him. He was arrested and taken to the Van Nuys City Jail in the Valley. I called the Jail to find out what it took to get him out of jail before he had to go to work in the morning. When the jail employee told me the bail bond was $20,000 I almost cried. Then I did some research and called
Palm Harbor Financial Planners Provider Name Locked
across the street from the Van Nuys city jail. And a very kind bail agent was able to calm me down and walk me through the entire bail bonds process. She was patient and very understanding. She was able to inform me that just because the bail bonds is set at $20,000 does not mean that is my only option. The bondsmen told me that they would be able to get him out of jail within 4 hours, and he would make it to work. But in order to do that I would need to pay the bail bonds company 10% of the set bail. In my case the 10% fee was $2,000. I agreed to go ahead and start the application and get my husband out of this nasty jail house thanks to

agents.

It went well. He put me in a couple of different reputable financial products. I invested some with an annuity for long term goals and in a gas/oil product for my short term goals. I'm very pleased with his knowledge and ability to call back.

T.J. showed up on time in the morning, which is important to us. I would like to also point out, more specifically, he came TO US! We loved that personal touch and going out of his way to service his clients. Everyone else we have worked with in the past has made us come into their office. Insurance and retirement is not a terribly fun thing to discuss so we loved the fact that we get to be in the comfort of our home, T.J. comes in and caters to us and our needs, and we can be more efficient with OUR time and done quicker. We loved it. Service like when doctors used to make house calls. This is not done enough nowadays.
He was very knowledgeable about his business and our needs, clear, concise, and explained every thing in a language we could understand. We were shown multiple companies so we didn't feel like we were guided down a path that wasn't best for us.
They even helped us with retirement strategies and optimizing our retirement nest egg to better suit our needs!
