Important Announcement - Our Committment to You

March 13, 2020

As Cohen Financial Services continues to monitor the latest developments with the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the significance of serving you continues to be our top priority.

First and foremost, the health and well-being of you, your family, your friends and our community is of paramount concern.

We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing. Rest assured we are committed to being responsive to your needs as this situation evolves.

Over the past few weeks, fear has spread throughout the world. Fear is a complex emotion. It can help us or hurt us. Most of us live with unnecessary fear and worry about the future and the past. We tend to overthink and allow fear to paralyze us.

However, fear is also useful.  It makes us alert. That is a good sign. We are all taking the necessary precautions to avoid exposure, versus putting everything on hold. This is why we’re not worried long-term. Just know that our social contact is only temporary.  Make the best of this situation. We will recover and things will get better. Our resilience is what makes us one of the greatest societies in the world.

Please know, we are here for you. You can always call (913-338-2577 or 800-747-9420) or email ( If you wish, we have up-to-date technologies to conduct video conferences/webinars.

We encourage you to utilize our digital tools. You can access the “Resource Center” tab on our website ( for timely articles on the coronavirus. There you will see ours and others’ thoughts on the current situation. You also have the availability to view your portfolio 24/7 by going to the “Account Login” button on the website.  Finally, AdviceWorks, our client portal, is at your disposal. It allows you to view your accounts, collaborate with our office and receive and store items “in the cloud”. You may sign up for this under the “Register Now” button on our home page.

As a reminder, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed as follows:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Follow the CDC's recommendations for using a facemask.
    • CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a facemask to protect themselves from respiratory diseases, including Coronavirus.
    • Facemasks should be used by people who show symptoms to help prevent the spread of the disease.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

We all know this, but it bears reminding in today’s environment.

We will continue to monitor this quickly evolving situation and are here to assist you in any way we can.  We truly appreciate our long-lasting relationship we have forged together.
