Bernard Tobin

It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of
Founder and Partner, Bernard Tobin, March 10, 2021.

Bernard began his insurance career in 1963 with Lincoln National Life Insurance. In 1967 he earned his Charter Life Underwriter (CLU) designation. Then he continued with Lincoln National until 1999, ultimately striking out on his own, starting Integrated Planning Strategies, LLC.

Bernard’s success was based upon delivering products and services specifically designed for each client’s needs, completing annual reviews, and making them feel like family.

Bernard was married to Cecile and has three children, 9 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

Jordan Tobin

Jordan joined Integrated Planning Strategies 2016 as a co-owner after acquiring in depth training over many years. Prior to this, he trained as an architect and owned his own residential design firm for many years. When clients ask if the transition was difficult, his response is “My previous training as an architect was the perfect foundation. The design process of architecture is exactly the same as insurance and retirement planning, just the variables have changed.”

“I have as much joy helping a family with their financial needs as designing improved spaces in their homes.”

Jordan is married and has four children and 11 grandchildren.
