Expert Planning for the Next Season of Life

Mission Statement – August Edge, LLC:

To exceed expectations for providing planning, services and follow up to simplify client transition through retirement: Day-to-day living, housing transition, insurance and benefit programs, legal and accounting.

August Edge was named after Augie, the father of our firm’s president, Alan M. Stricker. Augie and his wife, Jody, taught their children many valuable lessons, several of which are carried into our everyday business practices: earning trust, caring for and respecting people, building win-win relationships, and enjoying the process

Besides honoring Augie, “August” also refers to the season of life when you have tackled many accomplishments and worked very hard to get where you are. August is a golden time, a time to enjoy the fruits of your labors. We are here to help you prepare for that time in your life, and then enjoy it – worry-free – once you get there.
