About Russ Swallow


Russ Swallow, LIA, CSA
Health Insurance and Employee Benefits

Russ is a Licensed Insurance Adviser and Certified Senior Advisor.  He has been helping clients with their health insurance and benefits planning needs, business and personal, since 1970.

Only a small percentage of insurance professionals practicing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts may legally call themselves an Insurance Adviser or Insurance Consultant.  Licensed Advisers have passed an extensive written state examinarion and fulfilled further experience requirements as determined by the Massachusetts Division of Insurance.

His business card calls him The 3700 Year Old Man because he’s been involved in a benefits decision (health insurance, disability insurance, whatever insurance) at least twice a week, for more than 37 years.  Do the math, that’s 3700 times.
