Who We Are

Reliance Retirement Services

Our Founders

Brothers and business partners, Dana and Tyler Dunkelberger are second-generation retirement specialists. They were raised in a small mid-western town in Iowa by their father who has years of industry experience. Before entering the financial field, they were both professional waterskiers and traveled extensively around the world.

Collectively, they have experience in retirement strategies, insurance, income planning, and estate planning. The combination of their professional knowledge and sincere concern for clients’ welfare allows them to meet both their immediate and long-term needs.

The firm is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA), the National Ethics Association, and the Better Business Bureau. They are most proud of their awards including Outstanding Customer Service. 

Reliance Retirement Services offers more than 12 years of experience in retirement strategies. We assist our clients in planning for retirement and protecting their finances during retirement. Our goal is to simplify the retirement planning process so that clients are able to achieve their financial goals.
