Solutions That Work

My Story

I've always been passionate about working with seniors and strive to provide the right solutions to meet their health care and retirement planning needs and budgets.

Life challenges  often come without warning as we found when  my mother-in-law was injured from a fall and needed to move in with us for additional care.

Having experienced firsthand how her health crisis changed all of our lives is why we specialize in helping seniors find solutions to their Medicare and Retirement needs. 

Hi, I'm Michelle Shawn  - Owner of Senior Benefits Network - Offering You Solutions That Work. 

Have Questions?


Medicare is overwhelming for most people!  Here are a few common questions we receive -

"What are Parts A,B,C,D?   Do I need a Medicare Supplemental?  What are the best options?  How much does it cost? What if I'm still working past 65?"    What about penalties?

Do you have questions or feel confused by all the information that is pouring in?  If so,  please take the next step...

Join us at one of our free Medicare Educational Seminars or schedule a free complementary one to one meeting.   

At Senior Benefits Network we value you!  Each person is unique  and often has life and/or health  circumstances that require customized plans to meet their needs.        We listen.  We  clarify.   We educate.
