Centrally located in downtown Decatur, Sams/Hockaday & Associates has been serving local seniors with Medicare insurance and retirement planning since 1981.
As Medicare enrollment approaches, many of our clients tell us about the dozens of mailers they get, the telemarketing phone calls, emails… it’s overwhelming. When are you supposed to enroll for Medicare? How much will it cost? What if you’re still working?
Rest assured that we keep up with Medicare so that you don’t have to. When you meet with one of our qualified, local insurance agents, you’ll experience the hands-on, personal service we give to ensure all of your Medicare and retirement planning needs are met.
We don’t follow a one-size-fits-all approach – your needs are unique, which is why we’ll get to know you, your risk profile, your preferences, and your budget. Only then will we educate you on your options and make our best recommendation to fit your needs.
Major cost savings
Here at Sams/Hockaday, we don’t just sell one company – we represent dozens of them! This gives us the opportunity to price shop the entire market to get the most competitive price. We often hear from clients that we’ve been able to save them hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars per year.
We don’t just sell insurance – we’re there to help you with the claims process, which can be confusing and complicated. When you need to go on claim, we will find the proper forms and deal with the insurance companies so that you can focus on healing.
Friendly, local office
Because we’re local, you can experience the friendly, face-to-face assistance we give. Many of our clients have formed long-lasting relationships with the agents in our office. We are truly a family here at Sams/Hockaday – something that you just don’t get when dealing with advisors over the phone.
While most older adults come to us for Medicare help, we don’t just stop there. We are a full-service agency that helps fill the need for many different types of insurance and investment opportunities. Whether you need better health coverage in retirement or you want to ensure your nest egg is secure, we have solutions for it all.
Our team is truly passionate about helping our local adults understand Medicare. It can be confusing, which is why we take an education-first approach. You can trust us to explain the parts of Medicare, how they affect your health coverage, and what your options are without feeling like it’s just a sales pitch.
In-home assistance available
Because we’re local, we can come to you if you’re not able to come into our downtown Decatur office. Many of our clients enjoy the in-home appointment option, and we are always happy to accommodate to your schedule. It’s a great feeling knowing that you have support just a phone call away.
Caterpillar, ADM, Ameren, and other local retiree programs
If you’re retiring from a local company, you can be confident that we’ve helped others in your situation. Whether you’re getting a stipend from your employer or are required to purchase from a particular group or company, we know how the system works. We will walk through the uncharted territory to help you save time, money, and headaches.
