Most meetings are between 30-60 minutes depending on what kind of planning you are looking for. If you do set up an appointment, please bring in any necessary paperwork:
-most current asset statements (bank account, brokerage, investment, TSP, etc...)

( this should include the balance owed, interest rate, and minimum payments)

It's okay if you do not have all of these items. However, the more you have, the better he will be able to assist you with your finances.
