We represent many major insurance carriers (see "Our Partners" section) and as a result, we can be sure to deliver the policies that best meet your own personal requirements. Our focus is to provide senior care services for final expense insurance quotes at no cost or obligation to the seniors and their families.
We are pleased to review a person's current insurance plan and often we can suggest a policy which is more appropriate and less expensive with "A rated" carriers. Call us, and put us to the test; meet an insurance broker that puts YOU first!
We look forward to helping you.
We offer everything from Annuities and 401K's to Securities Trading.
