'Fiduciary' Rule Reveals High Cost of Hiring the Wrong Financial Professional

August 11, 2016

It’s surprising, but true - some financial professionals, like securities brokers and insurance agents, were only recently required to act in the best interest of their clients.

Traditionally, securities brokers and insurance agents were required to act under what’s known as a “standard of suitability,” meaning that as long as a particular investment or insurance product was right for the client it didn’t necessarily need to be the best choice from the options available. It’s something of which the public was generally unaware, compounded by confusion over the various roles and requirements of the different types of financial professionals, and the legal responsibilities of each. Yet it had the potential to impact an individual’s or couple’s quality of life in retirement. For instance, if a financial representative had two similar insurance...

Tompkins Financial Advisors Outline Projecting Retirement Income Needs

August 11, 2016

If you want to retire comfortably, how much do you need to save before you can leave your job? You've probably heard that you'll need to replace a certain percentage of your income to sustain your lifestyle in retirement. Financial experts estimate that percentage could be anywhere from 60 to 90 percent, or even more. Reducing your income by a certain percentage will take into account the fact that there will be certain expenses you'll no longer be liable for, such as payroll taxes, in retirement. “It's a simple, common-sense approach, but it doesn't always work because each of us have specific needs and plans for retirement,” says Bill Murphy, CFP®, a vice president and senior wealth advisor with Tompkins Financial Advisors. If you want to travel extensively once you retire, for example, you might need 100 percent of your income. While it's advisable to use a certain percentage of your income as a benchmark, it's...
