It's easy to brag about Wiegers Financial & Benefits!
Established 25 years ago by Cliff and Deb Wiegers, the company grew from humble beginnings to a level of success that puts it on par with some of the largest financial planning companies in Canada!
Their approach to working with clients is personal and they are dedicated and committed to getting to know their clients and what they want and need, both at the beginning of the working relationship and as their personal and professional lives change or as their businesses evolve. This commitment is reflected in a process that involves regular contact and a client/advisor relationship that is both comfortable, familiar and special in an industry not often associated with warmth!
Award Winning Community supporters!
Wiegers Care for Kids actively fundraises year-round and has already hosted five major fundraising events, raising over $800,000 for the Jim Pattison Children's Hospital
Wiegers Financial & Benefits came highly recommended.
Many of the Trusted Saskatoon partners are already long-standing clients of Wiegers Financial & Benefits, in fact, they were nominated by Trusted Saskatoon Salon owners, Laddie & Shelley James of Hairstyle Inn Salons - that in itself is a great testament to the high standards and level of care that the Wiegers team bring to the table!
Don't take our word for it - hear from more of their happy clients here!
"The people at Wiegers take care of me personally as well as the group benefits at Reed Security. They're helpful, friendly and always offer a variety of options. I'm also impressed with their community values and the huge dollar amounts they continue to raise for the Children's Hospital. They care!" Virgil Reed, Reed Security, Trusted Saskatoon Alarm & Security Professionals.
"My wife and I have been accessing investment advice, long-term planning and portfolio management from Wiegers and company for several years. I have found the services to be personalized and tailored to the needs that we have, which wouldn't be the same for people of a different age. Attention is paid to our financial circumstances and our advisor, which in our case is Cliff Wiegers, keeps in touch personally or through others at the company. You have more confidence that people are taking care of the financial affairs under their watch in a careful way when you know that they do not resent making personal contact and obviously see it as an important part of making sure that they understand your needs. They take the time to discuss things which is not always case with service providers. Whether times for investment are good or bad, the need exists for competent guidance and we have received that. It is good to deal with a local company that is also linked in with large financial organizations which offer a range of products that may fit the particular client. I have appreciated the personalized service and attention we receive from the company." Eric Cline, Saskatoon
We are proud to promote and give the thumbs up to Wiegers Financial & Benefits as Trusted Saskatoon Financial and Insurance advisors!

The Trusted team work for the public, we do that by finding great local businesses, verifying they are as good as we have heard, and contracting them to uphold the 5 Trusted Guarantees. These businesses are the best and when they found out about Janice, a hard working single Mum in Saskatoon who had been ripped off from a local contractor and left living in a building site with her 10 year old daughter ...they STEPPED UP !
Here is Janices's Story Part 2 ...including the first video of the property so you can see for yourself whats she' dealing with. ( here is a link to Part 1 so you can read the full story)
JANICE's BUILD a Trusted Rebuild
After the initial meeting with Janice last week, the next step was to get a Trusted Contractor in to look at Janices's house.
Dave Andercheck from JABA Construction, is a well recognized business leader and expert in construction , he and his team met with Janice so he could look over Janice's bomb site of a home, he was shocked at the mess and terrible workmanship. He is now compiling a report so he can lay out just what needs to be done, and from there we can start planning the rebuild, and what we need in regards help & materials from the amazing Trusted partners across Saskatchewan and their suppliers -
Thank you also to Aaron Loraas- from Loraas disposal for donating bins and garbage fees for the project , Rona for their huge donation and Winroc for many of the materials , and of course the new heated roofing system donated by Heated roofing in Colarado!
TrustedSaskatoon.com Talk to the Experts – Trusted Finance Show - Questions for a Trusted Saskatoon Insurance Broker
Q: Courtney Saliken: What's a good insurance policy? Is one needed? What do you look for in them?
A: Great questions Courtney. If you have a mortgage, your mortgage agreement states you must have Fire Insurance. This is one of the coverages under a Broad Homeowners Policy. For more extensive coverage, you can purchase a Comprehensive Homeowners Policy. This includes additional coverages, such as Accidental Damage – by falling object in interior or by spillage and staining (i.e. you spill wine on your carpet); Mysterious Disappearance (i.e. you notice your wedding ring is gone but cannot prove how it went missing); Water Escape Due to Melting of Snow and Ice on Roof (snow melts and water enters the interior of your home causing ceiling or wall damage).
It depends on what coverages are important to you and it is something you should review with your insurance broker. Coverages I would definitely look for are Sewer Backup Coverage - has to be stated on your policy to be covered (not an automatic coverage); $2,000,000 liability (basic is $1,000,000). Some people decide they do not want to pay the premium for Sewer Backup Coverage as they do not have articles of any real value in their basements which can be a very costly mistake; I have seen damage amount to over $100,000 for the costs of cleaning up after a Sewer Backup Loss (tearing out and replacing drywall and carpet, etc).
If it is not cleaned up properly you can have a mold issue, which would not be covered under your insurance policy. Increased liability can help protect you if a tree in your yard falls onto the neighbor’s house and causes damage; or if you are renting an apartment and cause a fire that burns the entire building down. Many tenants think they do not need insurance as their personal property is not worth very much, but liability coverage alone is a great reason to get tenant insurance. A basic tenant policy can cost less than $20 a month.
Q: Mike Maille: Is there a type of insurance for people with chronic illness such as Chron’s disease?
A: If a client has Crohn's disease prior to having coverage in place, it would be considered a pre-existing condition and would not be eligible for coverage under our Health Plans we sell as this is a medically underwritten plan. In the event the client was coming off of a Group Benefits Plan through work, we would be able to provide them coverage under our Conversion Plan; the Conversion Plan offers continuous coverage without completing an additional medical questionnaire. However, we are only able to offer this plan within 31 days from being terminated from their employer benefits plan and are only able to convert the coverage they held previous (additional benefits would be subject to medical underwriting).
Most Personal Health Plans are medically underwritten at the time of application, and any pre-existing conditions are not eligible from coverage, but will provide coverage for any conditions, etc that may develop in the future.
You may also be able to look into coverage through the provincial health programs such as the Special Support Program; you can visit their website to learn more athttp://www.health.gov.sk.ca/special-support
I would suggest you apply for both the Blue Choice Personal Health Plan and Special Support Program. The Blue Choice Plan will provide coverage for anything the client may develop in the future and the Special Support Program may cover off cost relating to the clients current medical expenses such as medications and treatments for Crohn's.
