The Importance of Training for Management Succession
Many business succession plans focus on the succession of ownership but neglect to address the issue of management succession. Whether you expect the management team that will follow you to the corner office to come from inside or outside the company, you should consider training one or several people to serve as interim or successor management. This can serve multiple purposes. First, having trained successor management in the business can work into your short-term contingency plan established to cover your unexpected absence from the business (due to death, for instance). Second, trained successor management can serve as interim management during the transition period during and after your withdrawal from the business at your retirement, while your interest is being transferred after your death, or when you head out for that long vacation you have been yearning for.

Time for a Spring Business Checkup
Business health is just as important as personal health. You see a doctor annually for your checkup, and you should see your branch representative or Business Banking Officer annually for your business checkup, too. Changes take place throughout the year – balances in your deposit accounts fluctuate, lending needs arise, you take on more clients, you hire more employees, the list is never ending.

Healthcare Benefits Available in Retirement
The Government provides healthcare benefits in retirement using three federal programs administered by the state and local counties: (1) Medicare, (2) Medicaid, and (3) VA Benefits. Medicare eligibility is generally automatic at age 65. Medicaid is based on financial need, it is not automatic at any age. In addition to these two programs, you may also be entitled to military healthcare benefits if you or your spouse is a veteran or retired service member. The majority of seniors utilize services provided under Medicare.

Creating Effective New Year’s Financial Resolutions
How many of us can honestly say that we have made, and stuck to, all of our New Year’s Resolutions over the years? For those of you who have, I congratulate you; you have achieved something that many struggle with each year. Recent research from YouGov Omnibus shows that only 1 in 5 Americans has stuck to their New Year’s Resolutions. Whether it is losing weight, creating better work/life balance or taking up a new hobby, often times our busy lives get the better of our good intentions. It can be the same with Financial Resolutions, unless you not only create the plan, but also create an easy way to track and measure (and celebrate) your results.
