I've been working with Andy Barkate for over a decade. I've learned a lot about annuities and retirement through him and through research of the products he offers. Like all financial decisions, it's important to read the materials, ask questions and research your options. I'm very pleased with our relationship through the years and have recommended his retirement classes to numerous co-workers and friends.

I appreciate the individual attention you receive from Andy. He listens to questions and concerns, and discusses them with you. While some things fall into some general broad categories, he does not take a one size fits all approach to his recommended actions, they are very much tailored to your individual needs and open for discussion and changes. Not a high pressure approach at all and allows you to make any decisions necessary, when you are ready. Readily available and dependable to get back to you if you initiate contact. Highly recommend Andy.
