The Company

Economic Security Planning, Inc. provides the nation’s most powerful and comprehensive financial planning software tools and hands on calculation services to households and financial planners.

Our unique, widely acclaimed, and highly affordable products have been developed by Boston University professor Laurence Kotlikoff — one of our nation’s leading economists and the company’s founder.

You can use our patented tools on your own or have us use them for you. Either way our goal is finding safe ways to maximize your sustainable living standard. So whether it’s saving, insurance, Social Security, retirement, career, divorce, housing, or job decisions, we can help.

What We Don't Do

We aren’t lawyers, divorce mediators, or CFPs or other types of credentialed financial planners. You will likely need help from such professionals in writing up your agreement and doing other paperwork involved in filing for a divorce.

But either before—or as you work with these divorce specialists—you will need to agree on a settlement. But making a deal requires understanding how you each will fare. This is where Analyze My Divorce Settlement comes in. Our software is uniquely able to assist you in really knowing what you are getting before you sign.
