Phone: 314-336-0835 Tom’s administrative assistant is Cindy Sparks, 314-336-0836

Personal Statement:  Independent, Objective, Experienced. With over 30 years of experience and being independent, I’m in position to look at each individual without parameters, and provide solutions objectively for each unique situation. In retirement planning, I first address what is the individual’s idea of retirement, then develop a customized social security plan. The difference between getting social security decisions right and wrong can mean hundreds of thousands of dollars. After addressing these critical areas, we start putting goals, assets, liabilities, and income streams into a personalized plan, which is an ongoing process.
