Canton, OH – Seaman Retirement Planning was established in 1957 by Tom Seaman, a family man with a strong sense of fiduciary responsibility. With nearly five decades of successful financial planning and management behind it, Seaman Retirement Planning has become a respected member of the business community in Canton, Ohio. His sons, Jim and Pat, now run the company and hold to its long tradition of helping their clients towards safe and successful wealth management. Not only does the duo work with clients to develop strategies that could guide them into a successful retirement with a steady income but also work within their community to help educate others on the importance of careful planning. Their educational seminars are offered in both formal and informal environments in order to reach the most people in the Canton area. The fall session kicks off with “Annuities—The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly” on October 9th at 91 Wood Fired Oven.
“We live in Canton, our family is here, and the future of our family is here,” explains Jim. “All of us at Seaman Retirement Planning want to see this area thrive and know that our parent’s generation is well-taken care of during their elder years. That’s why we hold these seminars—if we can make people aware of what they need, what their options are, and how to prepare then we are doing our jobs.”
As Investment Advisor Representatives, they are held to a fiduciary standard to always put their clients first. To them, this means that they must continue their own education so that they can successfully serve clients and prepare them for retirement as they would for members of their own family. As the laws change, new financial strategies must be adopted. The duo explains that as responsible financial planners they must stress building plans that include a diverse investment pool that can safely grow wealth combined with the annuities that will provide a livable monthly income. These strategies are proven to safeguard wealth and allow for that wealth to be stretched out over a lengthy period of time.*
“The statistics on retirement planning are pretty grim,” says Jim. “Most people are not prepared for decades of retirement and most don’t realize that income taxes don’t stop just because you’ve stopped working. Both of these have to be factored into a retirement strategy or else there will be a deficit at a time when you need a surplus most.”
