Michigan Planners Overview

In 1962, Michigan Planners was born as an independent life insurance agency.  Tony DiLorenzo founded the company with a driven spirt, friendly personality, and solid work ethic.  Over the years, the firm has flourished into a full-service employee benefits firm, serving more than 255 clients.  It stands strong in existence today!

The firm is staffed with 25 employees, spread across two Michigan locations (Washington Township and Traverse City).  Led by Tony’s two sons, John DiLorenzo and Mike DiLorenzo, the service platform is based on the original founder’s belief in hard work and personal attention.

The group health and retirement divisions have experienced consistent year over-year growth, attributable to

  • Timeliness,
  • Personal Attention,
  • Progressive Partnerships,
  • Relevant Service Offerings, and
  • Aggressive Carrier Negotiation.

It is management’s belief that being slightly overstaffed is always preferred over the alternative, in order to maintain excellent customer response time, allow for proper cross training, and provide team members ample time for family priorities.
