Why did we become interested in Retirement Planning?
Before migrating, I worked with the Jamaica Customs Dept. in a supervisory capacity. I migrated in August 2010.
I was very active in my local church organization and spent many years focusing on the children in the inner-city, teaching classes primarily in math and reading. In most instances becoming a surrogate mother/aunt to many.
I am originally from Jamaica and the eldest of 3 children. My father died at the age of 35 years old from a brain aneurism that occurred at work, leaving my mother as a widow and housewife with 3 young children. I was 6 years old at the time and saw the changes that occurred as a result of him not having his house in order. He thought that he had time and had planned to get everything done in another 2 weeks.
Being active in my church family in Jamaica also caused me to see other families and children suffer from the same issues that I had faced because of poor to no planning on the part of the adults in said family. However, at that time there was little that I could do to solve the problem before it happened.
I am now in the insurance industry focusing on retirement planning using insurance as a tool with the seniors in my community and their families since January 2012. We are now licensed in the State of Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey as well as Certified in Long-Term Care.
How Did I Become a part of the Insurance & Retirement Planning Industry?
Upon conducting some research, I was able to understand how Medicare worked and the options that are available to its members.
Further education and training in retirement planning, long-term care planning, survivor’s income, social security & estate planning resulted in the establishment of Lifetime Retirement Solutions.
Recalling the effects of the death of my father reminded me of the importance of having a plan and the harsh effects of poor planning not only on the parents/seniors but the extended family as well.
As a result, we educate our families and communities on the importance of planning using insurance as a tool to meet their financial and retirement goals.

Other Areas of Focus: Social Security Maximization
At Retirement Solutions, we believe in these words and echo their sentiment by providing our clients with a comprehensive understanding of Social Security.

One of the most imperative decisions you can make in regards to your retirement is when to start receiving your Social Security benefit. There are pros and cons to delaying your benefit, as well as receiving it as soon as you become eligible- at age 62. We can help you navigate this process by showing you precisely what to do, and at what time, to maximize your Social Security Benefit.
