About Rick KellyRick Kelly has spent most of his career helping pre-retirees and retirees achieve and sustain secure retirements. He is a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA)® and licensed life, health, and annuity agent. He advises based on the motto, “Defense wins a secure retirement, so secure the four pillars first! Don’t worry, be comfortable, confident and secure!”
Using a conservative approach to wealth creation and preservation, Rick has managed hundreds of millions of dollars in assets across multiple generations of families.

Rick’s passion and mission now are to help Boomers, retirees and business owners thrive in retirement regardless of market conditions! The market crashes of 2000-2002 and 2008 devastated the lives of way too many retirees. Yet, there were many retirees who thrived. Rick’s Retirement Certainty Planning helps retirees thrive.
