– Dennis is a broker, so there are no broker fees.
– He gets you more insurance/coverage for less money.
– Review your insurances frequently for several reasons…..Dennis is local.
– Other insurance agencies that have specific products, they refer to Ascend, because they have so many companies.
– Dennis does all the paperwork on line and saves you so much time and stress.
– If you are over 65, you get Part A and Part B and a Medicare supplement. Anthem Blue Cross is getting away from B, but they’re keeping C and adding D (for prescription drugs).
– If you don’t get Plan D when you are 65, you’ll be charged a fee when you add it later on. (Takes Dennis 5 minutes to do the application, email you form, etc.)
– You can change your Medicate supplement once a year, 30 days before/prior to your birthday.

– He will meet w/ you, determine what you have to work with, tells you to pay off the mortgage, pay your realtor fees, etc.,
– If you don’t have enough, he’ll advise you to work more where you are, or move here, where it costs less to live.
