“I talk to a lot of people new to retirement or approaching retirement. It’s usually a shock when we can help them understand how their benefits and health insurance decisions can play a role in keeping them active in retirement. Things like health management courses, staying connected to activities at a gym, mental health activities, your basic health priorities. It’s a great feeling when you can help people on this path by getting the benefits they need or didn’t know existed.”
