If I use Balanced Financial Planning, Inc. to develop a financial plan, am I obligated to purchase the recommended products?

No, absolutely not.  We will offer recommendations which in our professional opinion will meet your needs and objectives, but you are under no obligation to purchase them. In today’s competitive market, it makes sense to shop around for the best available product or service. For instance, if you need to obtain a life insurance or disability policy, we will suggest the kind of policy, which riders and what amounts may be best for you. We will then direct you to a choice of companies that can provide a quality product at competitive prices for you. If you wish, we can help you set-up your brokerage accounts and make the recommended purchase trades with your authorization.
