The personal financial plan includes cash flow, debt management, college savings and planning, employee benefits optimization, estate planning (in conjunction with an estate planning attorney), insurance, investment analysis, retirement planning, risk management, and tax efficiency planning. It is a one-time flat fee, based upon the scope and complexity of the financial engagement, typically between $2,500-$6,000.
