Our Services

  • Retirement Planning

    At Empowerment Financial Group, LLC, we take pride in providing comprehensive retirement planning services to our clients. We review our clients’ wills, estate plans/trusts, taxes and insurance. Our comprehensive services integrate all aspects of our client’s financial picture in a coordinated effort to provide for financial clarity and multi-generational wealth.

    Wealth Management

    As life changes, you may find that your attitude about risk begins to change. Protecting and preserving your wealth against market downturns should be an important part of your comprehensive retirement plan because a significant reduction to your portfolio could potentially derail your retirement plans.

    Terror-Free Investing

    Every invested dollar has a consequence. Those dollars can be directed toward good or they can be spent to do evil. At Empowerment Financial Group, LLC, we can help you manage your wealth while you make a financial and moral impact in the war on terrorism. We have investment vehicles that screen out companies with active, non-humanitarian ties to Iran, Syria, North Korea and Sudan, nations identified as state sponsors of terror.

  • Social Security Maximization

    Your Social Security retirement benefit represents a lifetime’s worth of savings, time, and work, and is most likely your oldest and largest retirement account. Although most Americans are familiar with the basics of Social Security, very few are able to figure out – on their own – exactly the best way to file so they can get the most out of all they have put in.

    Financial Planning

    A lot of financial service companies focus only on one piece of your financial security. Empowerment Financial Group reviews your entire financial picture, based on your personal circumstances and needs. Over many years in the business of building wealth, the EFG team has identified seven core issues where we typically can add the most value and provide customized solutions.

    Business Exit Planning

    At some point, you are going to leave your business whether you want to or not. Our goal at Empowerment Financial Group, LLC is to help you maximize its value to protect your family. Business Exit Planning is the holistic approach of designing an exit strategy from your business so you will receive maximum value for your life’s work.
