Our History

Seaman Retirement Planning was established in 1957 by our father, Tom Seaman.  Tom graduated from the University of Notre Dame and played football under legendary coach Frank Leahy, where he learned a strong work ethic and family values. He saw the need to build a firm that would cater to the personal financial advice of people planning for their retirement or already retired.  With eight children and 26 grandchildren, his passion was family and as a family business he felt strongly about taking care of clients as though they were family. Tom passed away in 2014. His son's, Jim & Patrick, continue his legacy with a dedication to their clients by providing trustworthy advice, analysis, and products that are always in their best interest.


Why We Are Different

Based on state laws, when a professional acts as a fiduciary for the client they are held to a higher ethical and disclosure standard and MUCH higher disclosure standard. Fiduciary responsibility exceeds that which is normally required of ordinary business relationships because the fiduciary is in a position of trust. As a fiduciary, we are required to act for the benefit of the client, and place the interest of the client before our own.

We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and professionalism in our relationship with you, our client. We endeavor to know and understand your financial situation and provide you with only the highest quality information, services, and products to help you reach your goals.
