What our Clients Think!

Sitting Right

Nothing means more to us than hearing we’ve made a positive impact on our clients’ lives. We’re so grateful for all those who have shared their kind words with us over the years. Here are a few that touched our hearts!

“Once I contacted you about applying for Medicare, you helped walk me through the process with phone calls and emails. I was stressing out about applying for Medicare and supplemental insurance, but you made it easy and quick. No stress, and you took the guess work out of it. Thank you for all you did. Great customer service.”

Taking the Pain Out of Travel

With the holidays right around the corner, we’re sure many of you are making plans to visit friends and family — or even make a trip down to warmer latitudes. But whether you’re driving cross-country or taking flight, one thing is certain: Travel can be a pain in the neck. But with a little precaution, you can keep yourself limber and pain-free for the holidays! The Basics Whether you’re driving or flying, proper sitting posture is key. Ideally, your seat should be angled to support the natural arch of your spine, anywhere from 100 to 110 degrees. Your tailbone should be positioned right where the seatback meets the cushion, and there should be about an inch of space between the edge of the seat and the back of your knees. If applicable, adjust the headrest so you can rest your head comfortably in its center. Finally, keep both feet evenly spaced and firmly planted on the ground — unless you’re the driver of course! For Drivers Those behind the wheel have a few extra steps to worry about. After you adjust your seatback and assume the right posture, you may have to slide your whole seat forward or backward to ensure you can comfortably reach the pedals and steering wheel. Ideally, your arms should rest at right angles when your hands are on the wheel. You’ll also want to adjust your mirrors to require as little neck movement as possible. If you are hunching forward to see traffic through your rearview, your neck and back are going to be sore by the end of the journey. Stretch It Out When it comes right down to it, our bodies just don’t do very well when seated for long periods of time — even with perfect posture. On road trips or long flights, find the time to stretch your legs. Pulling into a rest stop or taking one or two laps down the aisle can do wonders to keep back and neck pain at bay.

“You demystified ‘Medicare speak.’ You thoughtfully considered what plans would be most appropriate for my current situation. You considered the viability of the companies I could choose from and their previous track records on premium changes.”

–Janet McKim, customer since 2018

“Moving into the Medicare arena was mind- boggling and intimidating for me at first. Tim Hanbury’s help and guidance made it a seamless and easy process. Tim cared for us and helped us all the way through the process of Medicare and the other options. The net result

is that Medicare is an easy-to-use and cost-effective method of health care coverage. I never spend a dime out of pocket, and I never have a problem with Medicare covering my claims. I must say at the age of 69, I work out every day of my life, I eat healthy meals, I drink in moderation and in the end, I take no medications at all and rarely have to see a doctor. Aging is a pleasant new chapter in my life. Tim Hanbury has been the best advisor that I have ever encountered.”

We hope these tips help you have a merry holiday season! Safe travels!

–Randolph Mathena, customer since 2015
