Congratulations! You have taken the first step in your Retirement Journey, to gain knowledge.

Experience Matters. Since our founding in 2000, Horizon Financial Services, Inc. has remained focused as an Oklahoma based Financial Advisory Firm devoting specialized advice to K-12 and Career Tech employees, their families, and friends. Our guidance has accompanied thousands of Oklahoma Educators on their journey to, and beyond, retirement, and we remain at the forefront of our industry in education, financial products and advocacy. Focusing our experience in the areas of Oklahoma Teacher’s Retirement, Social Security and Tax Advantaged Retirement Accounts has given our clients the cornerstone of knowledge required to make their financial decisions.
In 2001, after the President signed into law the Economic Growth and Tax Reconciliation Act (EGTRRA),we began offering clients the Governmental 457(b) Retirement Plan as a preferred vehicle to start saving for retirement. In 2003, we co-founded the Oklahoma Educator Recruiting & Retention Plan where districts utilize the flexible capabilities of the Governmental 401(a) Retirement Plan to structure matching retirement plans and other salary alternative plans. In 2009, we faced sweeping law changes to the Governmental 403b Retirement Plan prompting our districts to turn to us for direction and management of these new burdensome regulations. In 2013, growing numbers of Educators considering retirement created the need for our annual statewide retirement workshops and webinars which are now considered a must see before retiring. Today, we are engaging our network of clients and employers on the need to offer Exchange Trades Funds (ETF’s) and eagerly awaiting the Department of Labor’s new regulations affecting retirement plans.
