What Rich's clients are saying
Rich Schlueter knows all too well of the devastating impact long term care issues can have on a family. Rich watched his mother experience great emotional and financial strains as a result of his grandmother living in a nursing home for 15 long years after suffering from a stroke. The effects on the family are still very real, after many years and another generation.
Influenced by his own family experience along with his talents for risk planning and client education, Rich became a Specialist at Newman Long Term Care with the goal of helping people make informed long-term care planning decisions. Having been involved with the integration of long term care planning into the overall financial plans of hundreds of families, Rich recognizes the importance of preparing for the certainty of uncertainty.
Before joining Newman Long Term Care in 2012, Rich spent 14 years with a financial planning firm after graduating with honors in 1990 from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minn. As VP of Insurance Services and Manager of Central Planning Services, Rich supported as many as 15 advisors and 7,000 clients. During these years, he also earned his Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU), Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC), Fellow, Life Office Management Association (FLMI) and Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) designations.
As a long term care insurance specialist, Rich brings his clients a strong background in financial planning. This experience allows him to see and understand the many different aspects of his clients’ plans and to develop an appropriate long term care strategy for each unique situation.
