National Safety Month
Observed annually in June, National Safety Month focuses on reducing leading causes of injury and death at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. At Rocco & Associates, we want to focus this month on what it takes to keep your financial lives safe as well. While there is no magic cure for market risk or avoiding volatility, there are several other financial planning strategies that will increase your asset protection. One, and often the most overlooked, is liability insurance. If you saved 15% or more on car insurance in 15-minutes or less, did you sacrifice the protection that you need? One auto accident over your coverage limits could drain your savings and force you to rely on your retirement accounts more heavily. This concept of asset protection also goes for your life, health, homeowners, and even long-term care risks. As part of our service to our clients, we audit these policies at no additional cost, providing recommendations where appropriate. We hope you will join us this month as we help our clients protect their assets!
Let’s get running!
This year, Rocco & Associates will be the presenting sponsor for the First Annual Fairfield Police Sunset 5k Race and after party to be held at Penfield Beach. All the proceeds from the event will go to support two town agencies that are integral to our community: the Friends of the Bigelow Center for Senior Activities and the Fairfield Police Union Scholarship Fund. The festivities will start at 6:30 p.m. and we will be offering a traditional 5k race, a one-mile fun walk, and a Kids & Cops scamper. This summer spectacular will include food trucks featuring Colony Grill, Taco Loco, Sierra Nevada Beer for anyone 21 and over, activities for kids, entertainment, and family fun. For more information on the race and to register, please check out fpdcops.com/5k. Hope to see you all there!
