A million bucks isn't what it used to be! The benchmark of wealth in the 1960s would require $8.5 million today. You should still have a goal to save up $1mm, not so you will be wealthy (the 1% average $8.5mm) but so you can AFFORD to retire one day. Never fear, our advisors are here to show you how it can be easy when you have a plan.

$1M is not what it used to be

Is employer sponsored health insurance an endangered species? For small businesses, it is already going extinct. For large employers, they have some serious considerations to weigh but it is cheaper to pay penalties than to pay for their employees health insurance. Check out this NY Times article to see more about why we think so. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/05/01/upshot/employer-sponsored-health-insurance-may-be-on-the-way-out.html?_r=2

Prior to The Affordable Care Act, there were 47 Million Uninsured in America, now there are 41 Million Americans without health insurance! Six million people purchased insurance successfully through the Marketplace as of the 24th of March. The deadline is today but no one is getting through the website since you can't even login to a created account or you can leave a number with the Marketplace for them to callback "sometime after April 1st", according to the phone message. The bad news is this program is becoming a typical federal initiative, overpriced and under-effective; all of this for a 13% reduction in uninsured Americans! The good news is, FSI can help with professional advice and guidance!

This is a brief but highly informative article from the head buyer of bonds in the first round of Quantitative Easing by the Fed Reserve Bank. He readily acknowledges his concern that this policy is only good for Wall Street and Mega Banks, the same ones who caused the mess in the first place! I will give you one guess who will be left holding the bag when the bubble bursts this time. Fill in the blank: ______ Street

Testimonials

Their knowledge of financial services and strategies is only exceeded by their enthusiasm and willingness to serve us in ways that are genuinely beneficial to us.

Dwayne & Liz - Atchison, KS
Isaac is a true professional in his field. His detailed research of and in-depth analysis of various financial strategies speaks very highly of Isaac and Mutual Savings Association. This sets him apart from other financial planners that we have talked to.

Bob and Juanell - Lansing, KS
What a pleasant and honest gentleman. Isaac won my trust over immediately and he began to guide me on the path of determining that my retirement plan wasn't just a dream, but a very plausible reality.

Victoria W., Fort Leavenworth, KS
I much appreciate the way I have been treated and the excellent conduct accorded me. Seems to me it would be no over speak to say I have indeed found that Marlene isn’t the only champion at Mutual Savings Association. Thank you for your champions!

Alfred K., Leavenworth, KS
FSI, Mutual Savings, and their clients. I would also like to mention Steve, what a fine young man! As he continues to work with Isaac Steve will be a great asset to Mutual for many years to come and he will be putting truck loads of money in Mutual customers pockets.

Richard B., Bonner Springs, KS
I appreciate the hard work, effort, time, and energy the staff put into the work they do! I love the staff of Financial Strategies because they are very knowledgeable and genuine. They have really helped my family and I pursue financial freedom.

Diamond H., Kansas City, KS
Fantastic! Have done everything we asked, answered all the questions patiently, couldn't be happier.

Donald H., Levonworth
To whom this may concern, as I have done banking with mutual savings for quite some time. I had the pleasure of using one of the banks many resources. I was helped by Steven Tarchala with Health Insurance needs and obtaining a policy at my affordability. It has been three months now and I have used the insurance numerous times. I just wanted to let someone know what a wonderful outstanding job this young man sis. I believe he is a valuable asset to the bank. This young man I believe went above and beyond to help me with my needs. I have personally thanked Steven but I would like the people who need to know at the bank that this man is outstanding.
