Retirement Certainty Scorecard™

Indicate the degree to which you agree or disagree with the statements below.

I have a clear, written and actionable retirement plan that shows my current financial position (Point A) and my ultimate future (Point B) and sets a path to get from A to B.

I know that I am utilizing independent advice and strategies which specifically fit my individual situation.


I review all of my investments each and every year based on how the market and economy are responding and make adjustments and/or rebalances at least annually or as needed.

I am confident that my estate planning documents and beneficiary designations are all set up to maximize the benefits that my family receives.


I am well qualified or utilizing professionals that are well qualified to give the best possible advice for my retirement, investment, estate and tax planning.

Core Purpose and Values

At Campbell Wealth Management we only have one goal. To make sure that all of our clients are able to retire with 100% certainty. It’s a lofty goal, but one that is undeniably appealing and achievable. So how do you get from retirement uncertainty to Retirement Certainty? It’s not easy, but it can be distilled down into five steps, which we call our Certainty Philosophy.

5 Steps to Retirement Certainty

  1. The Life Plan
  2. Retirement Income Strategy
  3. Investment Strategy
  4. Health Strategy
  5. Legacy Strategy


Retirement Certainty is not a guarantee. It is not a financial plan or even a certain type of investment. Retirement Certainty is nothing but a feeling. A feeling of confidence that comes from knowing you have taken the necessary steps to a confident retirement.

For over 20 years, we have worked with thousands of people approaching or in retirement. Through a myriad of different scenarios, we’ve found that there are concrete steps you can take to build a retirement that you are truly certain about. We’ve also noticed that most people, pre-retirees specifically, haven’t taken those steps. As a result, they end up feeling uneasy, anxious and even scared about their retirement. Those are not good feelings to have when you’re preparing to retire.

What many forget, however, is that you have control of your own destiny. You can put yourself in the best position, and feel 100% certain that you will not only be comfortable, but confident in retirement.

Remember the five steps you must take to achieve Retirement Certainty. Understand them, follow them, live and breathe them and you will live a life filled with excitement, achievement, confidence, comfort and most importantly CERTAINTY!
