I'm Joe Skelley. I founded The Skelley Group after an unexpected medical situation in our family left my parents financially devastated. After years of hard work and being financially responsible, this crisis hit out of nowhere and wiped them out, even resulting in them almost losing their home.

Never did we ever imagine that anything like that could happen. They thought they had done everything right. In this case, what they didn't know DID hurt them.

I vowed to never let this happen to our family...or any other family ever again. It became my mission not only to help other families prepare and plan for the unplanned but to expand and help business owners secure better tax advantages and young professionals plan for their future.

My focus is educating people about the reality of what options are out there, what they really provide and how you choose the right ones for your situation that will protect you no matter what comes along.

The Skelley Group Insurance Agency provides you with the products you need to secure your family's future. It is our mission to employ the best products, people and programs in the financial services industry to help you achieve your financial goals.


Not All Life Insurance Is The Same

Many traditional life Insurance policies only payout when you die. Did you know some life insurance policies can also provide access to death benefits while you're still living?


LIVING BENEFITS not only pays when you die, it also can help to take care of you and your family by enabling the owner to access the death benefit in the event you experience a critical, chronic or terminal illness.

With modern medicine, more people are surviving major medical conditions. Unexpected medical expenses can take a financial and physical toll on you and your loved ones. The escalating costs of medical bills many terminally ill patients face create financial hardship ​during these critical times. We want our clients to focus on getting well, not on paying the bills.

Serving The Needs of Federal Employees

Business Meeting

We specialize in assisting federal employees with their benefits and investments. I can help you understand and maximize your return on the following:

  • Federal retirement systems

  • Federal annuity benefits

  • Thrift savings plan

  • Survivor benefits

  • FEGLI life insurance

  • FEDLTCI long term care insurance

I personally work with Federal employees to customize their portfolio so that it provides them the maximum benefit. ​As situations change, we can change the mix so your investments are always delivering.

Here's how I can help:

  • Formulating strategies that protect wealth, reduce risk of volatility and generate income.

  • Explaining pension income options to federal employees and helping them maximize payments with well-informed selection of payout options.

  • Guiding federal employees to appropriate benefits decisions for themselves and their survivors.

  • Providing education and information on distribution options from the Thrift Savings Plan and, potentially, the Voluntary Contribution program.

  • Assessing needs for life insurance during the employees’ working years, at their retirement and during their post-retirement.

  • Helping federal employees to manage risks, including retirement longevity, inflation, market volatility, tax obligations, income certainty and more.



Not all life insurance is created the same. Many Life insurance policies only payout when you Die. Did you know some life insurance policies can also provide access to death benefits while you're still living.


Our mortgage protection insurance is designed to pay off your mortgage in the event of your death to make sure you family can keep their home no matter what.


Final expense insurance allows the named insured to feel safe knowing that funeral-related expenses are covered regardless of the statutes of their estate at the time of death.


With an annuity, you can guarantee income for the rest of your life and enjoy your golden years without worrying about finances or burdening your family.


IUL policies allow you to take money out of your policy when you need it without a penalty, Extend Retirement Cash Flow for up to 30-40 additional years from a traditional 401k, IRA or mutual funds.


With term life insurance, you can save your family from worry by providing them with a cash benefit in the event of your death, giving them the security they need to avoid serious financial problems during a difficult transition.



Tax-Deferred Growth of Cash Value

Because an IUL policy allows the tax-deferred growth of cash value, your funds can grow and compound exponentially over time.

No Market Risk

Due to IUL policy cash values having a “floor,” there is no downside risk to your principal in these plans – even if the underlying index that is being tracked suffers a substantial loss or experiences a high rate of volatility. This means that you can count on having your principal protected for the short and the long term.

No Maximum Annual Contribution Limits

Although you may invest in a qualified retirement plan through your business, these savings vehicles will typically have annual maximum contribution limits. Unfortunately, this can hold you back from accumulating additional funds you may want or need in the future. An IUL policy, however, is not subject to these contribution limits, which means that you can continue funding your IUL policy, even if you have already “maxed out” your other retirement savings options.

Tax-Free Funds for Business Purchases

You can also borrow your IUL cash value for purchasing items and/or equipment for your business. Doing so may be able to help you secure more favorable access to money vs. high-Interest forms of borrowing to obtain the things your company needs, as well as for expanding your business over time.

Continuation of the Business

In many cases, the death of a business owner or key company executive could signify the end of the business altogether if there is not some succession plan in place. An IUL policy could be an ideal vehicle for funding a business buy-sell agreement. With a buy-sell agreement, remaining partners or key individuals can use the funds from the IUL policy to purchase the insured’s portion of the company – essentially keeping the business running in the interim. Depending on your business, there are several different ways in which a buy-sell agreement can be set up.
