The Buckley Insurance Group is a family-run agency located in Brick, NJ operated by Derick Buckley and Kerri Buckley. Our goals are simple, we want to help our clients clearly understand their choices when it comes to Medicare, Health Insurance, Life Insurance, and Retirement Planning options. We work with many carriers in 37 states because we fully understand how beneficial it is for our clients to have multiple options for both plans and carriers to find the coverage they need and the budget they can afford. We are very proud to say over 50% of our new clients come from referrals and we are an accredited business with the Better Business Bureau.
Derick started his career back in the late 1980’s on Wall Street where he worked for over 13 years. During that time he became a bond trader and VP with HSBC Bank, working and living in New York, London and Hong Kong. After the tragic events of 9/11, where he lost 17 friends, he realized any thoughts of going back to that environment or career were no longer the path he wanted to take.
Once Derick learned about the Senior market, how Seniors struggle daily to understand Medicare, how many Seniors over-pay for their insurance and how retirees truly need a trusted resource to help them with their retirement goals, he got licensed to sell insurance and began his own company. Since then he has never looked back or stopped trying to find ways to help Boomers and Seniors. Derick published his first book in 2017 "How to Survive the High Cost of Retirement in NJ". It is a collaboration between other local experts such as CPAs, Attorneys and Financial Professionals to offer tips and solutions for those nearing or already in retirement. He also has been involved with the local community and sits on the Board of Directors of the Brick Police Athletic League. He is a former Board Member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County.
Kerri has an extensive background in Human Resources. She worked in the financial district in New York as well as locally at a major hospital and local school system. Kerri recently got licensed in 2015 and now shares the same passion as Derick to truly help Seniors and make an impact in our community. Additionally, Kerri sits on the Board of Directors for the Brick Chamber of Commerce.
Derick and Kerri were married in 1995 and they have 2 lovely children. Their son, Connor, loves the Yankees, Giants, and Rangers but his favorite team is the Chelsea Football Club (we still have no idea how that happened). Connor attends Georgian Court University and aspires to work in the sports industry. Their daughter, Sydney, found her true passion at the age of 2 ½ and danced competitively through High School. Sydney currently attends TCNJ and is pursuing a career as an elementary teacher with a focus on helping special education students.
