These are the most common getting started forms. We have prefilled sections with the common information and highlighted the remaining sections for you. After printing, reviewing, filling out, and physically signing the form, you can scan and upload the whole thing to our secure ShareFile client portal by following the steps in our guide, “How to Upload a Secure Document to Marotta.” In doing so, you are either requesting that we open or continue an advisory relationship.

Any time that you are considering opening an account or rolling over retirement assets, the SEC requires that we prominently tell you that the latest copy of our Form CRS is on our website here. For more information about Marotta Wealth Management, you can read our Frequently Asked Questions or review our descriptive brochure.
