Tour Our Office

Are you tired of dealing with the stuffy broker wearing a three-piece suit in a high-rise building?  This is Tucson, it is too hot for suits and ties.  If the typical bank, wirehouse or brokerage firm setup is not serving you well and you want to be in an office that makes you feel more comfortable and relaxed so you can discuss your goals, dreams and financial future you have come to the right place.   Silverman + Associates understands the needs of our clients and we strive to make this process the best experience possible for you and your family.  Our intention is to create a safe space where there is no such thing as a silly question without ever feeling like you are being sold a bunch of investment and insurance products.  We treat people like we like to be treated, it is that simple.


Are you taking more risk with your portfolio than you're truly comfortable with?

What is Your Number?


Our unique process can benefit your unique situation.

Our unique process is designed to help our clients achieve simplicity and confidence to and through their retirement years.  It’s focused around 5 key areas of your current financial life.  Because making smarter choices about your money impacts the quality of your life.


We’ll help ensure your expenses can be paid month to month with reliability and predictability for the rest of your life.  This includes:

  • Social Security Maximization
  • Income & Expense Analysis
  • Inflation Plan
  • Spousal Plan


It’s important to make sure that any remaining assets you’ve worked so hard for go to your beneficiaries instead of taxes.  By working collaboratively with a qualified Estate Planning Attorney, our goal will be to help you:

  • Maximize your estate and income tax planning opportunities
  • Protect any assets in trust and ensure they are distributed to your beneficiaries probate free
  • Protect your IRA and qualified accounts from becoming fully taxable to your beneficiaries upon your death


We’ll create a plan designed to help you protect yourself against rising healthcare costs. By working collaboratively with a qualified Health Insurance Agent, our goal will be to help you:

  • Look at all aspects of Medicare, Parts A, B and D
  • Analyze strategies for a Long-Term Care Plan


Once your income plan is established, we’ll create an investment plan for the remaining assets that you do not need to draw from month to month.  This includes:

  • Assessing your Risk Tolerance
  • Adjusting your portfolio to reduce or eliminate fees
  • Evaluate ways to reduce risk while still accomplishing your goals
  • Comprehensive Institutional Money Management


Any comprehensive Retirement Plan will include a strategy for addressing taxes.  By working collaboratively with a qualified Certified Public Accountant (CPA), our goal will be to help you:

  • Assess the taxable nature of your current holdings
  • Strategize ways to include tax-deferred or tax-free money in your plan
  • Strategize which tax category to draw income from first to reduce tax burden
  • Leverage your qualified money to potentially leave tax-free dollars to your beneficiaries 

The importance of using a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® Professional.

As a potential or current client, collaborating with a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ provides you with the reassurance of attaining your financial goals.  In addition to meeting a high standard of education and career experience requirements, CFP® professionals possess credibility at both an ethical and professional standpoint.

Prior to certification, CFP® practitioners must complete a CFP Board-approved financial planning curriculum—mastering almost 100 integrated financial planning topics (investments, insurance, retirement planning, risk management, etc.), while also committing to continued educational classes, including a code of ethics course.

Furthermore, CFP® professionals are required to pass a 10-hour CFP® Certification Exam that tests their financial planning knowledge on an integrated level, and accumulate at least three years of personal financial planning experience.

In the final step, CFP® practitioners concede to a strict code of professional conduct, known as CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.  This clause lays the groundwork for an advisor’s commitment and ethical responsibility to the public, clients, and employers.  In addition, the Code of Ethics prompts CFP® professionals to remain fair and diligent when providing financial planning advice and services, putting your interests first.
