Jen Higginbotham has joined Independent Retirement Planners, LLC. located in Richboro, in the capacity of Independent Insurance Agent.
A graduate of LaSalle University, Jen previously worked for 11 years as a mental health program coordinator. She was forced to leave her career in the mental health field in 2010 due to a mold-related illness and the need for several years of intense medical treatment. Jen now works with people to help them protect themselves, their families and their income so they don’t have to go through what she went through. In 2013, Jen began working in the insurance field as an independent agent, concentrating her practice in the areas of Health, Life, Disability, Long Term Care, Supplemental Health Insurance and Annuities.
A major focus for Jen over the past month has been the recent changes taking place as a result of the Affordable Care Act and the launch of the Insurance Marketplace. Jen is a registered agent operating in the Marketplace and is currently assisting people to review their health insurance options, both on and off of the Marketplace, to find the best plan to meet their individual needs. Jen’s best advice when asked about navigating the new Marketplace is to “obtain the help of a Licensed Insurance Agent, you won’t be charged for getting help from an agent and a licensed agent is someone that you know you can trust with your personal and financial information.”
