About Rick Machtinger

BBA MBA CFP®

Rick Machtinger is an associate of Desjardins Financial Security Independent Network. He is licensed for Life and Health Insurance in the Province of Ontario.

Rick has been in the insurance industry since April 1991.  Rick has always focused on building a financial plan to help his clients meet their unique needs and prepare for life’s unexpected challenges.  Whether it be that you live too long, die too soon, or get sick or hurt along the way, Rick always places the needs of his clients first.

In the summer of 2018, Rick ruptured his patella tendon from a fall and was on disability for about 6 months.  During his rehabilitation, Rick gained an appreciation for what it was truly like to be disabled.  He also discovered the only company in Canada that specializes in supplemental living benefits coverage, which complemented the insurance industry’s current offerings.  Upon further investigation, Rick determined that fewer than 20% of all financial planners focus on what can happen to their client’s financial welfare should they become sick or hurt.  As a result, Rick is changing the focus of his practice to revolve around living benefits or income replacement.

In short, if you suffered an accident or sickness, would you be okay?
