We recognize that the route to retirement is not a single road. It is a journey to the place where all roads converge. We’re here to make sure you reach your destination with confidence.
Journeys from the Past
This company is making my retirement money go further and improving my quality of life. My only regret is that I did not find it earlier!
The team at Five Pathways took the time to present me options and explain what all the options. They answered my questions, no matter how unimportant or insignificant. Everything I have asked to check in to, thay have done. They do what they say thay are going to do. It's been a pleasure working with Five Pathways.
Five Pathways has one of the absolute best customer service teams that I have experienced in a very long time. I have experienced a greedy salesman in the past when I didn't have the knowledge to realize it. Five Pathways is very helpful, thorough, honest, and sincerely tries to help potential clients, but not just to make a sale. They have the highest integrity and is sincerely interested in helping the client "see it like it is".
We have been talking with Five Pathways about fixed index annuities. They are very knowledgeable and took all of our information and found the best fit for our retirement needs. I got all my questions answered, which were many, and was explained things in a way that I could understand which made me feel comfortable about our decision.
I was very skeptical about annuities. Through numerous calls and reviewing all the different options, Five Pathways settled on a policy that meets all my long term goals while providing me with the security I needed to continue my retirement and live comfortably until I leave this earth. Thank you!!!!
Five Pathways was very very helpful. They anticipated our questions before we asked them. They are very knowledgeable and offered many suggestions and different scenarios for what we were inquiring about. It was very helpful to see all the different charts with our info plugged in them. It made it much easier to understand. They really knows their stuff, and we so appreciated their help. We will definitely refer folks to them.
Very professional consultations. Several options were discussed. Educational and took the time to answer all my questions to my understanding.
The team provided us excellent financial services. Their customized care and expertise put us in an advanced position for future wealth and security.
We have procrastinated planning for our financial future because we have often felt pressured when we talk with financial people about this. Working with Five Pathways Financial was painless, as they were willing to offer a variety suggestions but never made us feel pressured. We were very comfortable and open to hear what he had to say and feel like whatever amount of money we might bring to the table (large or small), they would have treated us with the same respect.
The entire team was very knowledgeable and patient and took the time to educate me on multiple financial products. They took complicated topics and made them easy to understand to help us make decisions. Thank you
The team is kind and compassionate while displaying a sincere desire to help individuals with their retirement planning. They have a warm personality that allows one to feel comfortable visiting with from the very first zoom meeting. I reached out to Five Pathways Financial after viewing one of their webinars. I feel fortunate that they are the consultant who reached out to me. They are knowledgeable and willing to help in any manner possible.
Even though we live in different states, I felt very comfortable meeting with Five Pathways by computer the very first time. I have so much admiration for the team because they were very knowledgeable, respectful, and sincere as she spent more than one day walking me through the application process.
I gained a better understanding of annuities and a projection of financial steps are best suited for my specific needs. Great advice based in years of experience
Five Pathways is here to simplify your retirement planning.
We’ll work with you to create a personalized strategy that incorporates all of the paths of retirement planning: Income, Taxes, Investments, healthcare, and Estate Planning.
Retirement Income Planning
You’ve got goals. But goals cost money. Make sure you have an income that works for you in retirement. And while we’re at it, why not make that income guaranteed? We’ll show you how to get the most out of your current assets, pension, and/or Social Security (whatever you might have). We’ll also be along for the full ride, helping to smooth things out when the road ahead gets a little bumpy. There are no shortcuts on the path to retirement, but we do know all kinds of clever side streets.
Your retirement plans may not include the IRS. But rest assured, the IRS has plans for your retirement. Let’s work together to make sure you get to keep the money you’ve earned. We’ll show you how to diversify your tax strategy and maximize your retirement benefits. We’ll make sure that paying taxes isn’t a roadblock on your way to retirement.
The perfect retirement looks a little different for everybody. The ideal portfolio should be the exact same way. Let's make sure your investment outlook is right, while reducing risk, minimizing fees, and potentially creating a higher return. And because we’re fully independent, we only answer to you. Whatever your personal goals are, we’re here to keep your investments rolling in the right direction.
It’s not always easy to talk about aging. It can be even harder to plan for it. We’ll help you make a plan and build a retirement strategy that accounts for all contingencies. Make sure you’re ready for all the unexpected twists and turns on the path ahead.
You’ve worked hard for everything you have. We’re guessing you didn’t do it so you could leave your inheritance to your least favorite uncle–Uncle Sam. We’ll help you minimize taxes and reduce penalties. We’ll also show you those smart backroads that only the locals know about. And we’ll give you full control over who gets what. Make sure the people and causes you care about have the means to follow their own path.

We’ll work with you to create a personalized strategy that incorporates all of the paths of retirement planning by focusing on what is most important to you.
It’s ok to stop and ask for directions.
Don't confuse a portfolio with an actual plan. A few vague directions from an advisor just won't cut it. What you need is a true financial guide–someone who's traveled this road many times and knows the best routes to success. There is no simple path to this destination. That’s why we’ll travel by your side the whole way, making sure that all roads lead to the retirement you imagine.
Annuities are just a product. They are not a plan. So depending on your personal situation, an annuity may or may not be right for you. An annuity can replace an accumulation strategy or create guaranteed growth, and it can even create private pension-like income. But does it make sense for you?
If you’re waiting until you die to use life insurance, you’re doing it wrong. After all, it’s called life insurance—not death insurance. But there are a lot of options out there. So which policy can help you the most in retirement? Well, this depends on your strategy.
Assets Under Management
Imagine you hire somebody to do a job for you. If they do the job well, you’re happy to pay them. But what if they don't do the job at all? Is it still worth the money? This is how we feel about assets under management with a traditional advisor. The market goes up and you pay your fee. The market goes down, you lose money...and you still pay your fee. We think you can do better.
Medicare/Long Term Care
Sure, you have Medicare and savings. But do you have a plan for your long-term care? Spoiler Alert: having kids isn’t a plan...at least not a good one.
Let’s focus on things we can control—taxes, fees, and risk— and stop chasing the things we can’t.
