Protection & Privacy
How Are My Assets Protected?
Your assets are held in a separate account, in your name, at an independent, third-party custodian, typically Charles Schwab Institutional or your employer’s retirement plan custodian (i.e. Fidelity, Vanguard, TIAA-CREF, etc.). These accounts are protected by SIPC insurance plus additional coverage through companies such as Lloyd's of London up to limits detailed by each respective custodian.

Do You Have Access to My Money?
We do not hold client funds directly; they are always held with separate and independent custodians. All deposits to client accounts should be sent directly to the custodian, or if processed by our office, must be made payable to the client’s account and NOT “Total Wealth Planning” or owners or advisors of the firm. Because we are operate a commission free environment, we are often able to help clients manage “held away” accounts like a 401k/ 403b plan. In these special circumstances, the SEC deems that we have “custody” and subjects us to special regulations to ensure the security of client funds including surprise annual audits by an independent CPA firm, Flynn & Co.
Do You Carry Professional Liability Insurance?
Yes, we carry Errors and Omissions insurance, Cyber and Data Privacy insurance. Additionally, we have an extensive internal code of ethics to return client accounts to 100% from any mistake originating from our office.
