Additional Resources

There are so many resources included in Retirement Connection, that often a few may slip past you and may not be noticed. Did you know that the guide also includes:

Care Management and Emergency Response Systems


Nuggets of Knowledge

"Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best. "
– St. Jerome

This quote is printed in the hallway of our office. Two years ago when interviewing Barret, we asked "what do you want us to remember about you after you leave and we meet with other applicants". He shared this quote and what it means to him and how it is reflected in his work ethic. He continues to live up to the expectation.
