Holiday Hours: Memorial Day and the rest of the Week

In observance of Memorial Day, Financial Independents, Inc. will be closed on Monday, May 29th. 

The NYSE (i.e., the Market) is also closed.  

Our office will also be closed the rest of the week: Tuesday, May 30th – Friday, June 2nd, due to Advisor vacations.

On Monday, June 5th, we will resume regular business hours Monday - Thursday, 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Eastern Time, and Friday by appointment only.

For URGENT issues, please text or call the office at: 517-484-4884. We will be checking for messages regularly and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

Summer Hours – June, July & August

What? We will have modified appointment availability during the summer.

Why? There are two reasons – all good!

1.    Addition of another Advisor, Michael Maisner – We recently announced that Mike joined our firm, and we want him to take appointments like our lead Advisor, Kathy Colby does. This will allow more appointment availability with two Advisor schedules available to you.

2.    Staff changes and process improvements – We are providing training to the rest of our staff to accommodate recent changes and process improvements. This will allow us to provide increased service and response times to you.

How Can You Help? Unless you have something urgent, please schedule your Annual Review appointments for later August/early September.

Helpful Information: When calling the office (517-484-4884), we do have a new phone system and you will need to press 1, 2, or 3 depending on the reason for your call. Keep in mind, due to staff changes and in-office training, you will likely need to leave a voicemail message. We will be returning these calls as soon as we can and ask for your patience during this time.
