I was going to send you an email but it’s more fitting that I write with my new pen – so nice! Thank you for the movie night box as well. I arrived back in Topsfield to get my taxes and books done for the shop and found these gifts. You made me smile.

All the Best,

Anne & Dan T.

Ryan & Marie,

Good luck,

Thank you so much for the fantastic oven glove. I just burned my hand on my oven last week and needed to get a new glove. Happy Holidays!

Dear Ryan,

It was a lovely evening; thank you very much for including us on the guest list. Dinner was delicious and the band was great. We were lucky enough to sit at the employees’ table and to enjoy Walter and Sylvia’s company. Finally, as I mentioned briefly to you and your wife, the oven mitt is great.

We came to Ryan and Summit Financial Partners just as Maureen was retiring at age 66. A big chunk of our retirement savings was in her 401(k) from work. We knew we needed income during retirement but we weren’t sure of the best way to go about creating it. Ryan showed us a solution that allowed us to create guaranteed income for life using the money in Maureen’s 401(k). We loved it. What’s best is we don’t have to worry every day about what the stock market is doing because our income isn’t affected by it. And if our circumstances change, Ryan’s solution allows us to get access to our money when we need it.

When I retired from NStar, I had my 401(k) and my pension. It’s great to have a pension but I knew it wasn’t going to be enough for us to live on. And I was worried about which pension option to choose. Ryan and Summit Financial Partners showed us 2 great solutions. The first would create guaranteed income using the money in my 401(k). It sounded a lot like my pension which is what I liked about it. Jackie and I could use this money along with my pension money to live on during our retirement. The 2nd solution was a way I could take the bigger payout option from my pension and still protect Jackie when I passed away.

I’m a widow so when it comes to planning for my retirement, I’m on my own. I’m fortunate to have a pension so I knew I would have some income for the rest of my life, but it wasn’t going to be enough to cover all my expenses. To cover the rest of my expenses, I sold some property I owned. I figured I would just take what I needed on a monthly basis from the money I received from that. Ryan and Summit Financial Partners showed me a better way. By using part of the money from the property sale, I was able to create guaranteed income, which along with my pension, would be more than enough to meet my day-to-day expenses.

We were referred to Ryan by both of our son’s in-laws, who are also his clients. Eileen and I were within a couple years of retiring and we remembered how devastating 2008 was for many folks we knew who were about to retire. The last thing we wanted being so close to retirement ourselves was a repeat of what happened to so many others when they lost money in the markets. Ryan understood immediately how concerned we were about the stock market. When he suggested solutions that would protect us against those losses and help turn part of our retirement savings into a lifetime income, we knew we had found the right guy.

I first met Ryan in 2009 when I attended one of his workshops. My husband had very recently passed away and I wasn’t sure where to turn and who I could trust to help me make the right decisions financially. I was still working at the time but knew I wanted to retire soon. It’s a good thing I met Ryan when I did because I was going to select a pension payout option that would have left nothing for my kids when I passed away. Ryan showed me that taking a lump sum payout from my pension made more sense because it left me in control of my own money, and gave me the best chance of passing some of that money on to my kids.
