Individual & Family Solutions


Weitz Financial Group provides individuals and families with innovative, cutting-edge products and services to help them grow, protect and conserve their wealth through all stages in life. Taking into account your needs, goals and tolerance to risk, we will work with you to bring clarity to where you're going and how to get there. Some of our key services are detailed below.

Estate Conservation

In conjunction with Advanced Planning Group, a service of New York Life Insurance Company, we evaluate your current estate plan and recommend insurance and financial products to help protect the wealth you have accumulated. The appropriate solutions may minimize potential tax and inheritance problems and help ensure the availability of liquid assets to help pay the taxes and settlement costs your heirs will face.

Retirement Planning

If you are retiring or changing careers it may be time to decide what to do with the funds in your employer-sponsored qualified retirement plan. Ideally, you would like to select an option that meets your retirement needs, minimizes the impact of taxes, and avoids penalties. If you are still in the accumulation phase, we can help you to set up a diversified portfolio to meet your individual needs and achieve your retirement objectives. If you don’t know what your needs or objectives are, then we can help crystallize those visions and get you to act upon those desires. Let us help you review your available options and offer financial and insurance products to help achieve your objectives.

Financial Planning

As a qualified Eagle advisor, Scott can provide personalized financial planning to our clients that is specific to several variables including their income, risk tolerance, values, and family. We work with each client to identify and prioritize their goals, explore options, establish effective strategies, construct and execute a plan, and assess the performance of the plan and make adjustments as needed.

Estate Planning

A well-engineered estate conservation plan can minimize tax liability and ensure that loved ones are protected. We will work with you and your other advisors to assess the impact of state and federal taxes on your estate and suggest strategies to help minimize those taxes while meeting your personal philosophies and family needs.

Asset Protection

There are numerous financial strategies and retirement income plans that can help you accumulate assets for the future, shield your business and personal assets from liabilities, and safeguard asset transfer to children and grandchildren. We can help you figure out what the right course of action is for your specific situation and objectives.

Charitable Planning

Charitable planning allows you to support the organizations and causes that matter to you, while often providing immediate income streams and reducing your tax burden. Numerous charitable giving strategies exist, and we can help you design and execute a charitable giving strategy that is in alignment with your personal and philanthropic goals. Please seek tax advice from your own tax advisors.


Managing your wealth requires a clear understanding of your overall investment objectives. Through Eagle Strategies LLC, our comprehensive investment advisory capabilities utilize a disciplined investment approach that looks beyond traditional asset allocation, while addressing important factors such as risk tolerance levels and investment time horizons.

Disability and
Long-term Care

To execute a sound retirement strategy, asset and income protection are a must. Designing a plan that encompasses managing costs for extended periods of care and disability insurance can help create the necessary balance in a portfolio to ensure stability and protection of assets.

401(k) and IRA

When you leave a job or retire, you have a decision to make regarding your 401(k) money. While leaving those assets in the former employer's plan is an option, a rollover can be a consideration. Working with your tax advisor, we can help you determine the right course of action for you. This may include: leaving the funds in your existing plan, if permitted, or rolling them into your new employer's plan, if one is available and rollovers are permitted. Each choice offers advantages and disadvantages, depending on your specific needs and retirement plan, such as the desired investment options and services, applicable fees, expenses, and withdrawal options, as well as required minimum distributions and tax treatment of applicable options.

Life Insurance

Many people think that life insurance is only for people with families. While it is true that life insurance can help provide for the needs of dependents, life insurance also can be an important part of a well-thought-out estate, business succession or charitable giving plan. And permanent life insurance offers many living benefits as well, such as tax-deferred cash value accumulation. For all of these reasons, life insurance can be important for someone starting out - or for someone who's starting over.

An annuity is a unique financial vehicle designed to help you accumulate money for your retirement and/or turn a lump-sum of money into a guaranteed stream of income payments.

Some of the different types of annuities are:

- Fixed Deferred Annuities
