CONGREGATIONS

Today, many church congregations are needlessly hurting financially. Solomon Ministries informs God‘s people of the financial truths taught by the Bible. We counsel congregations on the often confusing topics such as planning for retirement, healthcare, and legacy planning in a biblically responsible manner with the ultimate goal of supporting God‘s Kingdom.

FOUR FINANCIAL PIT FALLS FOR CHRISTIANS

Solomon Ministries' over 30 years of experience has provided them with a unique insight into the common financial pitfalls in which Christians fall victim. These pitfalls were created by the secular world, but Solomon Ministries equips Christians with proven faith based solutions to avoid financial disaster and provide the security the Lord wishes for his followers.

HEALTH CARE: 

Rising Costs

Due to advances in medical care, better nutrition and generally higher standards of living, more people are living longer. This fact and others have led to the continual rise of health care costs leaving most people one medical catastrophe away from financial ruin. 

RETIREMENT: Investing in the Wrong Places

Investing your hard earned money in the financial vehicles that can give you the highest return on your investment with the least risk is very important. However, just as equally as important is investing your many with companies that share your same Christian values.​

TAXES:

Paying Too Much

Taxes are necessary and provide general benefits to the public. However, it is important to know the tools available to you to ensure you do not pay more than  your fair share. Christians with proper guidance can reduce their tax burden in many areas.

DEBT:

Overextended & Interest Charges

The average Christian can borrow money in the form of credit cards or personal loans very easily these days. Banks have preyed upon Christians tempting them with instant gratification for the worldly goods they want now. This temptation has led many Christians to financial hardship.   

HEALTH CARE: Rising Costs

Due to advances in medical care, better nutrition and generally higher standards of living, more people are living longer. This fact and others have led to the continual rise of health care costs leaving most people one medical catastrophe away from financial ruin. 

Did you know?

  • A person age 65 or older who is covered by Medicare will pay out-of-pocket costs of around $4,900 annually on health care costs.

  • The out-of-pocket costs for the average family of four with employer-subsidized health insurance is around $9,700 annually.

  • Out-of-pocket costs for Americans with employer-sponsored health coverage rose faster than the costs that their insurers paid.

Solomon's Solutions for Health Care

Solution One: HYBRID LONG-TERM CARE PROTECTION

Hybrid long-term care protection is an alternative to long-term care insurance. Insurance companies have developed this option by using life insurance and annuities to provide long-term care assistance. We can help you decide whether a peer partnership plan or using annuities and life insurance is better for you when mitigating the likelihood of a significant long-term health event. 

Solution Two: LONG-TERM CARE PARTNERSHIP PLAN

According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the greatest financial risk seniors have is a long-term care stay. This is why most states have passed a new law called the Long-Term Care Partnership Plan. Solomon Ministries is able to help you understand a distinctive difference between the Long-Term Care Partnership Plan and traditional long-term care insurance.  The last thing you should have to worry about during a long-term health crisis is the financial cost. 

Solution Three: MEDICARE - MEDICARE SUPPLEMENTS - MEDICARE ADVANTAGE PLANS

The Medicare system seems to be an every-changing program. Solomon Ministries can help you with answers to your Medicare questions and concerns. Which one is better for you? You might be able to save thousands of dollars depending upon which one you get. We can help you choose. Solomon Ministries can also help you understand the difference between Medicare supplement and Medicare advantage plan.

RETIREMENT: Investing in the Wrong Places

Investing your hard earned money in the financial vehicles that can give you the highest return on your investment with the least risk is very important. However, just as equally as important is investing your many with companies that share your same Christian values.​

Did you know?

  • Most Christian investors in the stock and bond markets are unknowingly supporting companies involved in the Abortion, Pornography, Gambling, and Unwholesome Entertainment industries.

  • Invest firms rarely adjust their clients invest portfolios as their clients age.

  • Investments in the stock and bond markets without diversification leave investors susceptible to extreme swings in retirement value and inflation.

Understanding how your Social Security income is taxed is also a priority for many retirees. Our experience with benefits helps us discover how we may help you to increase income and reduce taxes.

We offer a complimentary annuity review for all those in our community who want to understand their existing annuities or potential annuities.

There are more options today than ever before for your IRA funds or 401(k) qualified dollars. We provide various options to help grow and protect your retirement dollars. A rollover may be simpler than you thought.

Legacy Planning is an important part of every retirement plan to have an estate strategy to help protect your legacy.  We work with skilled attorneys with expertise in living wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and other estate planning documents to make sure your legacy is transferred to whom you want and when you want.

 
TAXES: Paying Too Much

Taxes are necessary and provide general benefits to the public. However, it is important to know the tools available to you to ensure you do not pay more than  your fair share. Christians with proper guidance can reduce their tax burden in many areas.

Did you know?

  • If you are getting a significant refund from the IRS each year, you are overpaying on your taxes.

  • Common reasons your withholdings might change are marriage, additions to the family, or job loss/gain.

  • Long-term capital gains and qualified dividends are generally taxed at special capital gains tax rates of 0 percent, 15 percent, and 20 percent depending on your taxable income.
