18 Years Worth of Days Bridging the Confidence Gap Tuning Your Social Security Benefit Saving for College 101

Welcome to Jim Kelly Inc.

For the last 20 years, I have helped families plan for their futures by offering independent comprehensive financial consulting services.  What’s really different about me is that understand how all the pieces fit together.

 Basically, I do two things.

1.      With experience in finance, taxation, insurance and investments, I oversee many aspects of my clients' financial affairs.  I want to be the Chief Financial Officer to some families.  This is a long-term relationship with regular contact in a process designed to help people meet their financial goals.


2.      I assist people with more immediate or short-term interests.  This process is addressed more on my page titled – “Problem Solving”.  Click on the "Services" tab.
