Services for Business Owners

Employee Retirement Plan

As a business owner, offering a retirement plan can help you attract and retain top talent, reduce your tax burden, and provide a way to save for your own retirement. With a range of options available, including 401(k) plans, SIMPLE IRA plans, SEP IRA plans, and payroll deduction IRA plans, choosing the right plan for your business can feel overwhelming. That’s where we come in. At Sentinel, we provide the right guidance and support to help you make the best choice for your business and employees.

401(k) Plans: One of the most popular retirement plans offered by employers today, 401(k) plans allow both employers and employees to contribute to the plan. Our flexible program designs can meet your specific needs, and our safe harbor 401(k) plans don’t require nondiscrimination testing. Plus, all employer contributions are deductible as business expenses.

SIMPLE IRA Plans: A great option for businesses that don’t currently have a retirement plan, SIMPLE IRA plans provide a cost-effective strategy for employees to save for their future. At Sentinel, we help you navigate the process so your plan meets your business’s needs.

SEP IRA Plans: Ideal for self-employed workers and small-business owners, SEP IRA plans offer a simple and inexpensive way to save for retirement. Trust Sentinel to provide you the expertise and guidance needed to set up a plan that works for you.

Payroll Deduction IRA: If you’re looking for a way to help your employees save for retirement without the responsibilities of a full benefit plan, a payroll deduction IRA may be the right choice for you. Our team works with you to set up a plan that meets your employees’ needs.

Estate Planning

At Sentinel Financial Planning, we understand that estate planning is a crucial aspect to honor your final wishes and keep your loved ones safe in case of an unexpected event.

Estate planning is not just for the elderly, it’s important for anyone, regardless of age, marital status, or family structure. By taking control of your estate planning now, you can be confident your affairs will be handled according to your wishes when the time comes.

The titling of your property is an important step in the estate planning process, as it affects how your assets can be transferred in the event of your passing. Our team can guide you in making informed decisions about how to title your property, taking into account tax benefits and risk protection.

Various documents make up a comprehensive estate plan, including wills, healthcare directives, powers of attorney, and trusts.
