About Veterans Financial Group

Owned and Operated by US Military Veterans

Veterans Financial Group (VFG) is owned and operated by US combat Veterans who are dedicated to serve others.  Established in 2007, with over 50 years in the industry, VFG is driven instinctively to follow its core values of Integrity and Honesty, and to always do what is in the best interest of their clients.

Offering a range of insurance products including whole life, term life, universal life, indexed universal life, annuities, final expense, health, and Medicare, VFG, working in the financial services industry, simply wants to ensure you get exactly the insurance you need and can afford.  We represent many major insurance carriers (see "Our Partners" section) and as a result, we can be sure to deliver the policies that best meet your own personal requirements. Our focus is to provide senior care services for final expense insurance quotes at no cost or obligation to the seniors and their families.

We are pleased to review a person's current insurance plan and often we can suggest a policy which is more appropriate and less expensive with "A rated" carriers.  Call us, and put us to the test; meet an insurance broker that puts YOU first!

We look forward to helping you.
