Chase joined North Star in 2008 as a Financial Advisor. Although the advising career initially brought him into the industry, Chase was attracted to the challenge of disability insurance; the topic is rarely discussed or addressed due to its confusing options and complex underwriting. With determination and ambition, Chase moved to the Disability Insurance division as North Star’s National Disability Insurance Consultant. As a past Financial Advisor, he understands how to integrate a disability insurance program into an overall financial strategy so it is efficient and cost effective. He works with clients and advisors to ensure that proper consideration is given to the risks of a disabling injury or illness and how it affects the goals of a family or business.

Chase works closely with our North Star advisors to discover possible insurance options and narrow it down to a well-suited, quality product. Working with both your financial advisor and Chase will help you choose and receive a customized protection strategy to meet both your individual, your family’s, or business’ specific needs. Your income allows you to feel secure about your future and financial goals. But most people do not think about the affects when your income disappears. Chase believes everyone should learn and prepare for the chances this happens to you.
