Who We Are:
Founded in 1975, Senior Benefit Services™, has grown to become one of the largest senior insurance organizations in the nation. As the life and health insurance industry constantly changes, we make it our mission to continually educate and empower our team of agents and staff to meet the needs of our clientele, while providing the exemplary service that has come to be expected of SBS over the last 40+ years.
What We Do:
Senior Benefit Services™ represents over 50 of the top-rated life and health insurance companies that you may already be familiar with. In each household we sit down in, we strive to educate our clients on the financial risks they may face due to life-changing experiences such as transitioning onto Medicare, retiring, or dealing with unexpected health complications.
Why Choose SBS:
Aside from the expansive portfolio of plans and products that we provide (which gives you the freedom of choice – based on your needs and budget), we make it our priority to ensure you and your family receive the service and ease of mind that should come along with your insurance coverage. Plans change, needs change, and each person’s situation is unique. That’s why we’re committed to walk with you through all of it. We don’t work for the insurance companies – we work for you, for life.
To be the most trusted brand in the nation among Medicare beneficiaries for assistance when choosing their Medicare coverage year after year.
