Life Insurance is the only investment that matures at the very time that it is needed most
Tom Plemmons truly understands the value and importance of life and disability insurance. At the age of six his wife’s father did not come home and her life was forever changed. Later, his brother David would nearly die and was condemned to a lifetime on disability. He has also dealt with multiple suicides in the family, including his brother Chuck. We all deal with death, but the way that we prepare makes a huge difference for our family and our loved ones. It’s the difference between a life of financial security and loving memories and a life of financial difficulties for the ones that we love.

He would go on to earn his MBA with a Master’s in Marketing and International Business from the University of South Carolina.
