Wesley Mason, Founder, Castle Senior Benefits
My work with insurance companies began in 1991 when I was hired as a crisis response counselor for New Life Treatment Centers, a Texas-based Christian counseling organization. I served as intake director at hospitals in Washington, D.C., Boston, and Atlanta before being transferred to the company's headquarters in Plano, TX in 1996 to serve as Vice-President of Operations. Those years I spent serving in New Life's clinics prepared me well for my work with seniors on Medicare today. I do wish I'd gotten to Texas a little sooner, but my wife and I are grateful we were able to raise our daughter a Texan.
When I began Castle Senior Benefits, my mission was to use my background in education and counseling to create a different kind of insurance experience for seniors. My goal with each senior I work with is to help them understand how the maze of Medicare works so each can find the best plan for their needs. I ask a lot of questions about what's most important to you and go over all of the options available to you. You'll never hear me say "this is the best plan for you" until I know a lot about what your needs and goals are. I love being independent, as I have the freedom to contract with companies that offer good plans at good prices withouth begin captive to any insurance carrier.
I am a native of Los Angeles, but I have lived in several states throughout my career. My wife and I celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary in 2015. I must have some good things to say to the people around me about the work I do, as my wife, daughter, sister, nephew, sister-in-law, and son-in-law have all become licensed since I established this agency and are working with me, allowing us to expand our practice to many states.
