You've analyzed the market, identified funding sources and decided to take the plunge. Before you set up shop, take time to make sure you have adequate financial protection. You need a solid financial strategy to help protect you, your business, your family and your employees. Also, consider your retirement and the eventual sale or succession of your business.

To get started, consider a few of the following options:

ANNUITIES

Establish individual retirement annuities for yourself and your employees. Offering this type of benefit may help motivate your company’s employees.

DISABILITY INCOME INSURANCE

Help protect your business and a portion of your own personal income in case you become disabled and are unable to work.

LIFE INSURANCE

Buy life insurance protection and review the other features certain life policies have available for you, your family, business partners and employees.

RETIREMENT PLANS

Design a long-term retirement plan strategy for you and your employees.
