  • Complete Tax Planning Review including income tax and estimated payments projections
  • Proactive Estate Planning
  • College Planning Analysis
  • Insurance Review (personal & business)
  • Investment Strategy & Portfolio Analysis
  • Goals Visualization

Renewal years will consist of a minimum of 3 meetings to address timely areas of concern and proactively plan ahead.

Pricing Examples:

Example 1:

Julie completed her residency last year and is currently employed as an internal medicine specialist making $175,000/year. Julie still has high student debt and a net worth below $100,000. Julie is primarily looking for guidance on student loan repayment, allocating savings, properly insuring her income and assets, and establishing a strong financial foundation. Julie's fee would most likely be our firm minimum of $3,000/year ($250/month).

Example 2

Mark and Katie are married with 2 kids. Mark is a consultant and Katie is an emergency vet making a combined $325,000. They have saved well, reduced debt, and accumulated a net worth of $750,000. They are primarily looking for guidance with college planning, preparing for retirement, investment management, and tax reduction strategies. Their annual fee would be around $6,900 ($575/month).

Example 3:

Ryan is a self-employed contractor and Anna is a self-employed relief vet. They have combined income of $225,000 and a net worth of $400,000. As they are self-employed, their primary needs consist of solidifying cash reserves, navigating life/health/disability insurance needs, establishing retirement plans, and calculating/paying estimated taxes. They may also need assistance with business valuations and filing multiple state tax returns. Based on increased complexity, their annual fee would be around $5,250/year ($354/month).

    VetWorth works with clients on a fixed-fee basis, providing straightforward and transparent fees that are paid monthly or quarterly. 

    *Typical fees are $3300/yr ($275/mo) for individuals and $4500/yr ($375/mo) for couples & families.
