Mike Martinez



Founder & President

Mike Martinez understands the importance of serving hard-working individuals who value their time and money. As a young teen, he watched his mother lose her job of 23 years when the company closed down. Not only did she lose her career, but she also lost her pension, which she believed was secure. Mike witnessed the struggle his mother went through during this time, not realizing that later in life, he would be helping people just like her.
Mike began his college career in the medical field but switched to financial services, working for a big box firm while he acquired the necessary licenses to be independent. He remembered his mother’s struggles and knew he had an opportunity to help his community in this capacity. Mike never wanted to see his clients go through what his mother went through, so he steadily educated himself on pensions and how to secure them in the long run. The Pension Group was built, and Mike Martinez and his team have been helping people secure their retirements ever since.
Mike now specializes in turning company pensions into private pensions. He understands navigating various types of pensions and wants to help ensure his clients’ futures are dependable. Driven by fierce independence, Mike and his team serve their clients with custom-curated plans built to help get them out of captivity and into the retirement they dream of.
