Living Benefits Crusade

Why Us


I’m Todd Pickerig the founder of Pickering’s Financial Group. Pickering’s Financial Group was founded after an unexpected medical situation in our family which left my mother and friend, now business partner Troy Wiegand in financial devastation. Troy Wiegand was in an accident with a semi truck and was out of work for over a year and unable to bring in an income. After years of hard work and being financially responsible, this crisis hit out of nowhere and wiped them both out, even resulting in them almost losing their home and future retirement.

I vowed to never let this happen to my family and friends…or any other family ever again. It became my mission not only to help other families prepare and plan for the unexpected 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.

Pickering’s Financial Group 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.


  • 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 and create financial hardship during these critical times. We want our clients to focus on getting well, not on paying the bills.
