Financial Representative

1857-2007: A History of Excellence
 
Northwestern Mutual has been helping clients achieve financial security for 150 years. As it celebrates this milestone anniversary, look at some of the reasons for its success:

Many people look back on their lives with regret; not for the things they have done, but for the things they have left undone. They find they are more successful than they thought they would be and saved less than they intended. They find themselves in situations that are more complex and less predictable than they anticipated.

That is where Rick Kiefner comes in. Rick takes the time to get to know you and your preferences. He can help you anticipate and prepare for the bestand worst scenarios. The relationship Rick Kiefner establishes with you enables him to focus on your needswhat you want for your family and what you are currently doing.

Domestic Partnership Issues
If you're in a long-term relationship, you and your partner or significant other likely have shared goals and fiscal responsibilities. Yet, unmarried couples don't have the same benefits and legal protections automatically granted to married spouses.

 

Rick Kiefner understands the financial hurdles that domestic partners face from interwoven finances and joint assets to fewer rights for federal, state and employer benefits. Along with legal and tax professionals, Rick can help you protect what you value most and recommend solutions to bridge the gaps and meet your long-term financial goals.
