Step 1. Assess

Complete Your Financial Inventory in the Software

Identifying what you have, what you’ll need and potential Gaps, Risks and Opportunities is a critical first step in planning for retirement. Having a single view into your financial life (now and in retirement) is empowering. As demonstrated in class, simply click the link below to create an account.

Once inside the software go to the ASSESS module and complete Step 1. In Step 2, you’ll see a summary of everything you entered. Once you exit the software your information will be saved. You can return and re-assess/change or add any information at anytime. The more complete you are with the inventory questions in Step 1, the more complete your summary will be in Step 2.

Any questions, issues or bugs you find, as this is brand new software, please email lynnt@herretirement.com.
