Kevin Steklof, Steklof & Co.
At Steklof & Company, I help my clients achieve financial security through the planned use of Life Insurance, Disability Insurance and Long Term Care Insurance. I also work with business owners protect the value of their businesses and to create benefits packages to reward and retain their employees.

Sometimes clients are concerned about what type of insurance their family or business needs or for how much they should be insured. As a CLU (Chartered Life Underwriter) and a ChFC (Chartered Financial Consultant), I have the tools and experience necessary to recommend the appropriate solutions.

I have been serving the Rochester community for over 30 years. My goal is to deliver the appropriate insurance at a competitive price while also providing exceptional customer service.
