Social Security: By the Numbers Women and Retirement

Financial Planning

 I believe that working together we can do more than working alone. Together we can protect investments from economic turbulence, build future income, and integrate Social Security with retirement income and tax-planning.  Wayne Fourman is a financial advisor with the May Financial Group, Inc. Serving the Greenville and Dayton, Ohio area since 1983
