About trinity

Experience, Planning,


Trinity Insurance and Financial Consulting, Inc. is a privately held independent insurance agency owned by Nelson Tate. I am a business professional with over 30 years of successful sales and marketing experience. I began my insurance career in 1989 with Allstate Insurance as an Agency Development Manager recruiting and assisting agents in opening and operating sales offices in the Chicago metro area. In 1995, I opened an Allstate Insurance agency in Lake County, IL. and in 8 years built a client base of 1000 policy holders and agency earned premiums in excess of $1.0M. 

In 2003, I left Allstate to establish, own and operate the Maranatha Insurance Group. Maranatha was a successful independent agency organized to meet client’s needs in the areas of Auto, Home, Business/Commercial, Life /Health Insurance and Financial Services. In 2012, I sold the Maranatha Insurance agency and accepted an opportunity to work for Aon Hewitt in Lincolnshire, IL. Aon is a leading global professional services firm providing a broad range of risk, retirement and health solutions. 

While at Aon, I enrolled over 1,000 retirees in Medicare and prescription drug plans; reviewed plan documentation relative to CMS guidelines and managed client’s Health Reimbursement accounts. I was contracted to provide coverage through preferred carriers such as Humana, United Health Care/AARP, Aetna, Mutual of Omaha, BCBS, and Silver Script, licensed to sell in eight (8) states - IL., NY., SC. LA., GA., TX., MS. & CA; AHIP (America’s Health Insurance Plans) Certified through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

In March 2018, I decided to retire from Aon and join the Medicare ranks. My wife allowed me to retire but she told me that “I could not stop working” so on June 1st, I established “Trinity Insurance and Financial Consulting, Inc.”

Trinity offers a variety of insurance products and services as well as risk management and financial consulting for individuals and families and numerous types of businesses, civic, social and religious organizations. In an effort to address the person and business concerns of every client, we partner with companies that are financially sound and that share our dedication to quality service and fairness in their business practices.


What is a Medicare
Insurance Broker?

Someone recently asked me, what is a Medicare Insurance Broker? Well, a Medicare insurance broker is an independent agent who gives you an unbiased opinion on your Medicare plan options. We are appointed by many different insurance companies so that we can find the right fit for you. As a Medicare broker we will be unbiased and able to recommend a plan that fits your individual needs and budget. Also, you pay exactly the same rate for your insurance if you use a broker plus YOU PAY ABSOLUTELY NOTHING for our help!!!!
