About Us

In 1984, James Francis started in the Insurance industry after looking for a career change. James began selling Life Insurance, Health Insurance, Long Term Care Insurance and Medicare Supplements out of his laundry room where he made a small desk. Those early years were a lot of doorbell ringing all over Chicagoland and out in the farmlands of Illinois. Business hours started at 8am and went all day sometimes six or seven days a week.

In 1993, as his business grew, he outgrew that little desk in the laundry room. It was at that time that RetireMax Insurance Agency was created! He upgraded from the laundry room office to a 70 square foot office that he rented. Within a few years that building was sold, so RetireMax was on the move again.

In 1995, RetireMax found an 800 square foot office with a store front location in Midlothian, IL. That same year, the agency expanded by adding a division for home and auto insurance. Joe Francis, James' son currently oversees the Home & Auto division as well as the Commercial lines division!

In 2017, RetireMax moved into their Orland Park office location providing the largest office yet!

Good people to deal with and very knowledgeable! Very prompt and courteous . She took her time with me to make sure I knew the difference in different policies. Also very patient as I was undecided for a bit. I would definitely recommend this agency and I will.

Best Insurance Agency !!! Everyone is experienced and willing to help get the job done. I only wish other companies were this concerned with customer satisfaction

Jen provided some of the best customer service I have received recently. All of our questions were either anticipated and addressed in advance or resolved immediately. Our rates were cut nearly in half!

Easy, friendly and fast service! My experience with RetireMax was awesome, they deserve a 5 star rating for sure! I've worked with other insurance companies in the past and I would say this experience was by far the fastest, friendliest and I found most affordable! Jen made it so easy for me to purchase a renters insurance plan. Thanks, Jen for all of your help and providing a renters insurance policy so quickly! I appreciate you taking the time to go over unfamiliar terminology and plan options that I didn't know existed. I will continue to use RetireMax in the future!
