Retirement Planning Services: While you are still working, we can provide access to Merrill retirement outcome tools to analyze how likely you are to achieve and maintain your desired retirement lifestyle. Then we can recommend long-term strategies designed to help maximize the benefits of your retirement funding sources while potentially minimizing taxes. After you retire, we can help develop investment strategies designed to generate income and assist you in monitoring your spending to help reduce your risk of outliving your resources and eroding your legacy.
Wealth Transfer Strategies: Working with Bank of America trust and estate planning specialists and your attorneys and accountants, we can help you find strategies designed to help minimize estate taxes and address philanthropic and other trust and estate planning services. These strategies may involve such elements as trusteed IRAs, insurance, trusts, gifting and family partnerships.
Services for Business Owners: We understand that your life and your life's work are inextricably linked and can help you integrate your business and personal finances. Among the services we offer to help address your needs both at work and at home are investing strategies, key-person insurance services, retirement benefits services, business continuity and succession strategies and wealth transfer strategies. Additionally, through a Merrill Lynch Wealth Management Lending Officer*, we can offer you access to Bank of America's expansive array of banking, credit and lending services, including home financing.
Strategies for Women Clients: Members of our team have a nuanced understanding of the needs of women, many of whom will take full responsibility for their finances at some point in their lives as sole earners, after a divorce or as widows. In collaboration with their attorneys and accountants, we can develop wealth management strategies tailored to their changed circumstances and help them continue to look to the future.
Online Capabilities: We are here to help you pursue your goals and make your busy life easier. Merrill is everywhere you are - from sitting on your couch to traveling abroad. Access your accounts how, when and where you want. Explore what MyMerrill can do for you:
