My conversation with Brad [KGA Financial Consultant/Vendor Partner] was excellent. He provided me detailed information about the process of signing my daughter up for health plans since she will no longer be eligible for the BC family plan once I retire. We then spent the second half of the call going over some of the decisions we have made about retirement. A huge shout out to KGA and Boston College for offering this invaluable service.
