From start up to elephant trainer: one Midwestern company’s dance with Wall Street and K Street to improve the lives of 72M working Americans – (and 11M Brits to boot). Join us as Michael Kiley, CEO of PAi (Current’s reigning Next Generation Best Place to Work), brings you along his journey from a being a small startup firm in rural Wisconsin to becoming the back office for Wall Street goliaths like American Funds and Bank of America Merrill Lynch and shaping retirement policies that impact the lives of millions, not just in the United States, but also in the UK.

Each year, many Americans lose significant income, savings and assets because of long-term care expenses. Long-term care insurance is designed to help protect against the high costs of long-term care if you or a family member can no longer perform activities of daily living without the need of assistance. Health insurance or Medicare will not pay for this type of care. For many, long-term care insurance is an important part of planning for their long-term financial security.
HealthChoice also provides CareOptions services to all State, University of Wisconsin and UW Hospitals & Clinics Employees, Annuitants and their family members at no charge and no insurance purchase required. To use this service, request an information packet and it will contain the CareOptions member access information.
The MutualCare Custom Solution policy offers additional built-in benefits that include:
- If, prior to age 65, you sustain an injury requiring home health care, assisted living facility or nursing home care, your policy will pay up to two times the maximum benefit.
- Cash benefits that can be used any way you choose – you simply receive the full monthly cash benefit you select to pay for anything at all… family travel expenses, lost income, housekeeping services or other out-of-pocket expenses – there’s no need to collect or submit bills.
- Cash beginning with the first day of need – no elimination period to satisfy.
- Many other additional benefits and features listed in the information packet.
The CareOptions Program can assist you or family members with issues related to wellness, illness, disability, or aging. As an additional convenience, the CareOptions service can help you and your family members create Living Wills (advance directives for health care) as well as allow you to conduct care provider searches and medical information research seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
We urge you to investigate this plan for you and your family.

This is a place that takes your very good to great and then goes deeper before you go higher. This place is called Greatest! Sounds enchanting and unreal, but in fact it is not. Greatest is the place where maturity, security, confidence and peace dwell. A common daily occurrence is an acute awareness of your greatest asset: time, coupled with new joy and marketplace growth. You are invited to step in to Greatest.This workshop environment fosters fresh exchange of leadership thought. “Like a well-tuned athlete, you already know how to run the race.
