I was introduced to Al at one of his workshops. I was so impressed with his overall knowledge of financial preparedness for retirement and social security. I wanted to remain conservative with my savings and Al helped me to understand some options that really appealed to me. After meeting with Al, I felt comfortable with the decisions I made because he took the time to explain everything to me and he answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed. I’ve been with 1st Choice Financial Services, Inc for over five years and I’d highly recommend either Al or his son Kevin for your financial needs. Their staff is also very helpful and courteous. If you want nice people that you can trust to help you, give them a call.
My husband & I are very pleased with our experience with 1st Choice Financial Services, Inc. Most of our experience has been with the founder, Al Deitrich. Al is very responsible, answers questions & gives understandable explanations so his clients can make good decisions. He truly cares about his clients. He has integrity.
Been a client for 20 years…..Al and his team are great to work with
We met Al Deitrich at a Social Security seminar he was hosting in Lancaster. Not only did Al teach about SS, but he also reviewed many other areas that we needed to consider as we planned for retirement…things we had not even thought about! We had a couple one-on-one follow-up meetings with him, so he could learn about our financial concerns and needs. In these meetings, Al also reviewed the investments we had in place. Ultimately, Al presented us with a “Retirement Plan”. This Plan suggested we retain some of the investments we had in place, but others could be replaced with products that First Choice Financial could offer which were more in line with our needs and came without Market Risk! I was so impressed with Al’s knowledge of the Financial Services industry and his knowing which products were the best fit for our needs. I was most impressed with his desire to listen and develop a Plan for us that would bring us peace of mind as we approached retirement. It is quite evident that he has a passion to bring his clients a sense of security when their retirement does arrive. I am now a widow. I have not yet retired. But, I take great comfort in knowing that, with Al’s help, I will be financially secure when I do move into that next chapter. Thank you, Al!
Al Deitrich maintains a strong depth of knowledge around all aspects of retirement. What I have come to appreciate about Al is that he carefully listens to and understands my questions and concerns. And equally important, he makes sure that I understand his responses. Al has always kept my best interests at the forefront, and has enabled me to feel confident and comfortable with the financial directions we have taken.
Al and Kevin are great Advisors in helping us in areas to help sustain us in the future. Sometimes it takes an extra person or two to help you understand the fine lines and rules that we do not always know or see. They are very trustworthy and professional. The staff is equally professional. They are always there when you need them. They look at your situation as an individual and put a plan together just for your own needs. We highly recommend them.
Al and everyone there was professional and caring. They helped review and set up a plan that fit me and my family
After my husband passed away I realized I did not have a clue about how to secure my financial future as a widow. I attended a few workshops by different advisors on Social Security and Retirement and was very impressed with Al. My first appointment with him confirmed my initial opinion. He took the time to listen to all my concerns about having enough income during retirement, what my goals for retirement were, and my confusion about my options for taking Social Security and a Medicare Supplement plan. He laid out some options in an easy to understand plan to guide me through my retirement. I feel comfortable and confident that my investments are now tailored to fit my individual circumstances. I would highly recommend 1st Choice Financial Services.
We very much appreciate the guidance Al has given us choosing low risk investments and continuing to monitor their performance and advise us accordingly. In addition, both he and Kevin are always available when it’s time to review an investments performance and make appropriate adjustments to the allocation percentages.
For six years, we worked with Al and First Choice Financial Services. After attending one of Al’s informative seminars, we met with him on a one to one base. Al is very knowledgeable, and qualified, working with us in our financial planning, giving us the peace of mind concerning our financial decisions and knowing that the guidance we received will benefit us in our short term and long term goals.
