A financial plan for retirement: What's the cost?
Eight financial planners from across the country were asked to say what they would charge a couple in their late 40s or early 50s who want a comprehensive plan dealing with retirement, as opposed to estate planning, taxes and insurance. You can see from these quotes that the cost and scope of work done varies widely among planners. This suggests people should be able to buy a plan that matches both their needs and their budget.
