Our Trusted Partners

From Medicare Advantage plans and Medigap policies to life insurance and annuities, our partners offer personalized retirement solutions for consumers across the country.

How Our Partnerships Work

When you express an interest in finding a Medicare insurance solution — either by calling the number on the website or filling out a form — RetireGuide.com connects you with one of its partners for a free, no-obligation consultation.

Senior Market Sales

Your physical and financial health are often closely intertwined — especially as you approach and enter retirement.

Here at RetireGuide, we believe that finance and insurance professionals should listen to their clients and identify solutions tailored to their specific long-term goals.

That’s why we forged a partnership with Senior Market Sales (SMS), a leader in the insurance industry.

Our relationship with SMS allows us to give consumers who are interested in exploring their Medicare and insurance options the opportunity to work one-on-one with a trained, licensed professional.

Our partnership is unique because, while the experts from SMS are available to help you navigate various situations, RetireGuide retains complete editorial control over the information it publishes.

The site operates independently from SMS, which allows the RetireGuide team to provide you with unbiased information. Our comprehensive guides and carefully researched pages are free to all our visitors. If consumers are interested in taking the next step, our partner is here to help.

Why Our Partners?

If you’re interested in exploring your Medicare options or purchasing an insurance policy, you can fill out a form or call the phone number on our website. You’ll be connected to a Medicare customer service representative or insurance agent on behalf of RetireGuide for a free, no-obligation consultation.

If you have questions about Medicare Advantage or Medigap, an experienced professional will assess your current health care needs, out-of-pocket costs and future financial outlook.

You’ll get straightforward answers and a clear explanation of your options so you can make the best decision for you and your family. An agent will guide you through the entire Medicare enrollment process and serve as a touchstone if you have questions or need to update your coverage in the future.

Because our partners work with highly educated agents trained across multiple product offerings, you can explore other insurance products — including life insurance and annuities — with confidence.
