A large part of Leon’s career is spent helping federal employees maximize their government benefits as they near retirement. Working with the Voluntary Employee Benefit Systems (VEBS), Leon teaches benefit classes and meets privately with federal employees throughout New England.
According to Mr. Brueckner, who has known Leon since 1999, “Leon is a natural, honest as the day is long, and a joy to have in the office. Senior Financial Resources is blessed to have recruited him, and his devoted clients are blessed to have him overseeing their savings.”

With over 29 years’ experience serving both New England and Florida retirees, Sherry’s tenure in the insurance industry exceeds even that of our CEO, Thomas Brueckner.
Sherry has helped hundreds of clients solve a myriad of cost and insurability challenges — first by listening, then by exhaustive research — shopping out only those solutions that address both her client’s problem as well as their budget. “No policy solution does a client any good if it’s not in place when a claim is filed; our goal is solving as much of a problem as possible — without making our clients insurance-poor.”
