Beth Monnat joined Edwards Group in 2018, bringing with her more than 30 years of work experience in Social Security and Medicare. Previously, Beth spent 27 years with the Social Security Administration in Chicago. Since 2006 Beth has worked almost exclusively on Medicare Part D at local non-profits providing individual counseling, leading educational seminars, and giving presentations. Beth loves the educational aspect of the Edwards Group firm as well. “When I worked out in the community I would hear about the workshops at Edwards Group. Everybody always talked about how much they learned from them. This is one of the things I really liked about the firm before I came to work here.”
She met Elder Care Manager, Melissa Coulter, and Attorney David Edwards at a community event for seniors. From there, as the Elder Law and Elder Care part of the firm developed, it seemed Beth made a natural addition to the team. In her first open enrollment period with the firm, she saved 42 clients a combined total of more than $40,000 dollars by switching their Medicare Part D plans!!
Born in New York, but raised in Chicago, Beth’s been a part of the Springfield community since 2001 when she moved here to be closer to family. When asked if she’s a Cardinals fan or a Cubs fan, she says, “I basically grew up in the bleachers of Wrigley Field.” With the addition of Beth to the Edwards Group team, it looks like the scales have tipped in favor of Cubs fans around the office. (Shhh! Don’t tell David.)
In her free time Beth enjoys spending time with friends and family, including many nieces and nephews. She also enjoys traveling to Hawaii, going on cruises, and scrapbooking.
