Professional Background

Scott Klein obtained the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional designation and has experience in retirement planning and full financial services since 1995. His focus is to help his clients and employees of public schools and nonprofit organizations, along with employees & owners of private corporations and businesses. His goal is to help these individuals make informed financial decisions regarding retirement planning, life insurance, college savings, investments and long term care planning.

Scott’s educational approach is easy to understand and not filled with confusing financial jargon. He begins by spending time discussing your current situation, then together we identify what matters to you most. After identifying your needs and goals, we can create a plan that helps identify which investment or insurance strategies can best fit your situation. The end result being a personal financial road map which will guide you through the various phases of your life’s events.
