Chase joined North Star in 2008 from the University of Wisconsin- Eau Claire. Chase has a passion for disability insurance and is a prominent figure in the DI industry.

Income Protection (disability insurance) is rarely discussed or addressed due to its confusing options and oftentimes complex underwriting. Chase oversees the Disability Insurance operations and acts 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 establish 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 effects when your income disappears. Chase believes everyone should learn and prepare for the chances this happens to you.
