At Barndollar Financial, our sole focus is YOU

BARNDOLLAR FINANCIAL’s mission is to educate our clients on the issues that are important to their specific needs. We take our clients’ needs and concerns into account and offer them alternatives for action steps that best fit their situation. Our goal is to establish a long and trusting relationship with our clients throughout their lifetime. We work in a partnership with our clients to make wise decisions. We do this by learning about our clients as people and asking them enough questions to understand their risk tolerance, tax objectives, income and lifestyle needs. Our clients’ problems become our own – problems that we want to help fix. We also continuously monitor their accounts and hold ourselves accountable to our clients plan through our reviews.

Barndollar Financial offers a full range of financial products and services. We believe that income planning, tax planning strategies, retirement planning, and estate conservation should be top priorities for individuals and families of all ages and income levels.

Because many people regard financial strategies as complex and confusing, they often miss out on many financial opportunities. They also tend to take unnecessary risks and fail to adequately protect their assets.

Barndollar Financial specializes in estate planning for all sizes of estates, both large and small. We help clients avoid unnecessary taxes such as income taxes, taxes on Social Security benefits, and estate taxes. In addition, we help clients avoid probate, increase spendable income, and protect against Medicaid spend-down of assets when nursing home care is needed.
