Randy Hoffman

Randy Hoffman

Founder and President

Randy started his insurance journey in 2000, learning from some of the industry’s best.  He has since taken that training and become a trusted leader and a top rated, well respected advisor in the Independent Insurance Industry.

Randy is the owner and founder of Advanced Retirement Group. He established the company in June of 2005 to assist consumers in navigating the complexities of retirement planning which involves teaching them about conserving their savings and nest egg, Medicare, Medicaid and now today, the Affordable Care Act.

He graduated Cum Laude from Emporia State University with a degree in Recreation Administration and a minor in Business. When Randy isn’t spending time with a client you might find him spending time with his girlfriend, enjoying the outdoors, playing golf, hunting or fishing.

Randy enjoys helping people understand the complexities of healthcare and explaining it in a way his clients can understand and make an informed decision.  He strives to provide excellent customer service, taking care to always do the right thing for his clients. Randy’s philosophy on customer service – “Pick up the phone and call me, I’m here for you”   adds a human element back into a highly automated industry.  


Jan Hatfield

Jan Hatfield

Independent Agent

After retiring from a successful 27-year career in the Aircraft Industry, Jan desired to pursue his second career in a people focused industry.  His desire was to work in an industry that provided him the opportunity to help people and make a difference in their lives by ensuring they have adequate medical coverage which led him to Advanced Retirement Group.  Jan finds great happiness in knowing he is helping others and making a difference in their lives.

Jan loves meeting people and lives by what his Dad often told him, “When you find a job you’re passionate about you will never work a day in your life.”  You could say Jan is as passionate about people as he is about music.  At six years old, Jan’s mother purchased a guitar for him to save her car dashboard from becoming a drum set!

Jan also loves to network in the Wichita community and has a strong passion to help homeless veterans. He is proud to be part of Advanced Retirement Group’s support of Passageway, LTD and multiple other organizations helping our community heroes.
