The Bucket Approach
The Now, Soon, Later Approach is an asset allocation strategy that guides our advisors in determining how we invest our clients assets. The goal of the approach is to match an investment risk and return to our clients’ personal situation and profile. The approach is influenced by their phase of life: Accumulation, Preservation and Distribution. The ultimate result is a Now Bucket with liquidity, a Soon Bucket with limited to no downside risk and a Later Bucket with growth potential.

What is a fee-based advisor and why is it important? Holding ourselves to a ﬁduciary standard is a key component of our approach, as we have a responsibility to our clients to do what is in their best interest. This means determining risk tolerance, completing income gap analysis, allowing us to work with a broad range of investment vehicles to accomplish goals and charge appropriate fees. We are a Registered Investment Advisory Firm and are therefore able to minimize the fees through the development and management of our in house portfolios.
Storen Financial is a Fiduciary. This means we act on behalf of our clients, putting our clients’ interest ahead of our own, and upholding a duty to preserve good faith and trust.

Is there an age where Social Security is not taxed?
How are Indiana State and Local taxes calculated?
For new residents of Indiana, there is a learning curve on understanding State & Local taxes. Indiana has a flat rate for the State of 3.23%. So if you have $10,000 or $1,000,000 of taxable income, you are taxed at the same rate. In addition to this, each individual pays a county tax and each County can set their own tax rate. County rates range from .35% for Jefferson to 3.38% for Pulaski. There are a few exceptions to the rule, but an Indiana taxpayer is subject to County taxes based on where they lived on January 1st of the tax year. Click here to see more FAQs.
How much retirement income is taxed in Indiana?
Like a lot of other States, Indiana does not tax Social Security Benefits. Also, Indiana gives a full or partial deduction for pensions that originate from Railroad Retirement Board, Office of Personnel Management and Defense Finance and Accounting Service (Military Retirement). If one is not lucky enough to be receiving retirement from one of the listed entities, then your retirement income will be fully taxable to State and County. To keep from owing to Indiana on your Tax Return, please ask the Administrator if they will withhold State taxes on the benefits. If they do, then as a rule of thumb, we tell clients that 5% withholding will cover most taxpayers in the state. This covers both State and County rates. If someone knows that they live in a county with a rate greater than 1.7%, then take the percentage up to have withheld 6% or 7%. If the Administrator will not withhold State taxes, then Quarterly Estimates may need to be sent in. Like the Federal, Indiana can charge an Underpayment Penalty if more than $1,000 is owed at the end of the year.Click here to see more FAQs.
