Our Financial Consulting Team

Benton J. Miller holds an MBA from Cornerstone University and works as a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (SM) at DFCU Financial Partners. He has been educating members about retirement forecasting, college funding, and legacy planning since 2004.

As a Chartered Retirement Planning CounselorSM (CRPC®), Benton uses his education and 11 plus years of professional investment experience to tailor recommendations for members regardless of age, occupation or investment experience by creating a comfortable, understandable financial plan.  He works closely with clients over the long-term to monitor and update their plan to help them meet their goals.  

“The selection of products is very customizable to each client. With an individual financial management approach, I enjoy finding various options to help, no matter how small or large. By getting to really know the members I work with, there are often areas that haven’t been considered, such as tolerance for market risk, life insurance needs, or long term care costs. As we establish a long term relationship together, we can monitor progress while celebrating their individual milestones.”
