You should call this office if you or your spouse: 

  • Receive a large employee bonus or award 
  • Become unemployed 
  • Change employment 
  • Take an unplanned withdrawal from an IRA or other pension plan

  • Have significant stock gains or losses 
  • Get married 
  • Separate from or divorce your spouse
