Franklin & Associates – Kirk Matenaer & Barbara Franklin

Franklin & Associates was established solely to help individuals, couples, families and business owners with long term care planning and financing. Structured as a non-captive organization, the company is able to provide a multitude of options in both the traditional and innovative approaches to the planning process. The firm’s experienced principals bring over 30 years of experience to these issues and offer the kind of traditional personalized service that seems rare these days. In 2008 Company founder Barbara Franklin was recognized as one of the top 100 Long Term Care Specialists in the nation. Over the years the need for long term care planning has not changed. People are living longer and the cost of care continues to rise. In addition, it’s apparent that public programs like Medicare, Medicaid and the Veteran’s Administration will be unable to deliver a “safety net” for all of the aging Baby Boomers. With clients all throughout the country Franklin & Associates is immersed not only in planning, but also in providing services to policyholders who want to review their coverage or make changes, as well as those who need to access the benefits. Associates talk regularly with policyholders and their family members as well as coordinate with senior service providers. “Guiding our clients and their family members through the claims process and helping them access community and other supportive resources is an important part of our practice,” says Barbara Franklin. As the options for long term care planning expand, it’s more important than ever to consider the “big picture” and to customize a plan to fit individual circumstances. “As the transformation of the long term care insurance industry continues, we are committed to keeping our finger on the pulse of the newest and most innovative options” says Kirk Matenaer. Company representatives are active in the senior services community as both volunteers and board members, including the South Carolina Aging in Place Coalition, Lowcountry Senior Network, the Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic, Alzheimer’s Association and ITNCharlestonTrident (Independent Transportation Network).
