The presentation is being held in conjunction with Money Smart Week, a public awareness campaign from April 9-16 that is designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. The campaign was launched in 2002 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; more information about the week is at http://www.moneysmartweek.org/

A Certified Financial Planner and a Master Registered Financial Consultant, Kurinec joined Downers Grove-based Bentron Financial Group in 2004. Since then, he has helped people at or near retirement through investment advising, estate planning, risk management and watching out for their overall financial well-being.

In 2012, after his mother, Jeanne, lost her life to cancer, Greg and his two siblings founded “Jeanne’s Journey for Hope” to help other families battle the disease in its many forms. Over the next decade, the foundation raised over $150,000 to help families pay hospital and medical bills or as income replacement if the disease has resulted in a loss of employment.

The founder of Bentron Financial Group is Dr. Jim Flanagan. He has been advising people at or near retirement age for nearly 30 years and has become a nationally renowned expert on financial issues that affect seniors.
