Law Enforcement/Emergency Responders Law Enforcement Officers and Emergency Responders literally put their lives on the line every time they go to work! As a former Law Enforcement Officer (Police and Corrections) and Emergency Responder (EMT - Volunteer Ambulance Corp in Westchester County) himself, John understands the pressures that go with the territory and vividly remembers what a thankless job it can be sometimes. Whether you're trying to allocate your Deferred Comp Plan, determine how much you should be putting away for your financial goals (college funding, retirement, a first or second home, a special trip/vacation...) working with an advisor can make all the difference. Creating your personalized financial plan can help you determine your financial direction. J. Pink Associates can help. At J. Pink Associates, a big part of our mission is to give back to our community by being a resource for financial matters among other efforts (like our "Cocktails for a Cause initiative). No one has a bigger impact on the safety and welcoming feeling of a community than Law Enforcement and Emergency Responders who spend their working hours (and more often than not, non-working hours, through various volunteering efforts) contributing to the communities they live in and serve. We recognize and are deeply grateful for that passion.
