Frequently Asked Questions

Why don't other advisors charge for financial planning advice?


Many times you do not realize that you are in fact paying for advice. Or, maybe you are not taking advantage of it. You could be paying a wrap fee (a percentage of your investments under management), sales commissions, or 12b-1 fees. At Next Play Financial, the fee is agreed upon for our services so you know exactly how we are compensated for the services we provide.




Will you help me with my work retirement plan and traditional and roth IRA accounts?


Yes. As part of the Investment Analysis and Review, recommendations are made for your investments regardless of where they are held. As a fee-only planner, Melanie can objectively review your options surrounding a lump sum distribution from a pension plan versus rolling the funds over into a Traditional or Roth IRA.




Do I have to move my investments?


No. As part of the Investment Analysis and Review, recommendations are made for your investments regardless of where they are held.
