Our Services

To develop a financial strategy for your future, it’s important for your financial professional to see a complete, 360 degree view of your financial picture, including how your retirement assets are integrated and work with one another. We can work in concert with tax professionals or attorneys in our network to advise you on specific aspects of your financial strategy.

Retirement Income Planning, Wealth Accumulation, Asset Protection, Tax Minimization Planning, Long Term Care, Estate Planning, IRA Legacy Planning, Trusts, Life Insurance, Annuities, Probate, Charitable Giving, Income Planning and IRA & 401(K) Rollovers

Asset Maximization

Our main objective is to assist clients in navigating today’s complex marketplace to help accomplish their investment aspirations and goals. The recommendations you’ll receive are custom-tailored to you, factoring in your risk tolerance, goals, time frame, and income specifications.


New Generation Retirement® is a holistic approach to retirement planning consisting of a five-step system that we complete together.


One essential part of planning for your retirement is determining your tax liability and developing a strategy to minimize the amount of taxes you pay. We recommend customizing a retirement plan that is able to help take advantage of any possible tax credits and deductions.

Social Security

Make sure you maximize your Social Security benefit.

If you’re like many retirees, your Social Security benefit represents years and years of savings and hard work, and may be part of the foundation of your retirement income. Though many Americans have some basic familiarity and knowledge on the topic, far less are able to determine — on their own — the best way to file so they are able to maximize their benefit and carefully integrate it into the rest of their retirement plan.

At Crescent City Retirement Group, LLC, we help our valued clients develop a clear understanding of their Social Security benefit, and both educate and inform them on the optimal time to start accepting their benefit. According to the Social Security Administration, delaying your benefit may potentially increase your benefit amount by as much as eight percent per year.

There is a lot to know about Social Security, and it is important for you to be educated so that you head into retirement with a plan on exactly how you will rely on your benefits. Our firm is committed to helping you get the most you can out of your benefit, so you can take one step closer toward the comfortable and enjoyable retirement you’ve been working so hard for! In order to ensure you are maximizing your Social Security benefit, you should have a firm understanding of this complex matter.

We have put together an informative brochure that helps answer the following questions:

  • What is your Social Security benefit amount?
  • When is the best time to start accepting your benefit?
  • Are there different options if you are married?
  • Does earning additional income while you are on Social Security impact the value of your benefit?
  • Do you pay tax on your benefit?

Please contact us to receive your brochure today!
