Why We Do What We Do
“To connect with people in a way that both empowers and inspires them to better their future.”
This forms the foundation of our beliefs, providing both professional and personal guidance to every member of our company. While our vision, mission, and core values act as a moral compass, it is our “why” that serves as the heartbeat, driving our purpose.
“A future in which civil servants and military personnel can transition to retirement seamlessly, free from financial concerns.”
We understand that seeing our vision come to fruition within our lifetimes is unlikely. Nevertheless, we are wholeheartedly dedicated to working toward its realization. It is our hope that, with time, our passion inspires others to join our cause and contribute to our shared vision of the future.
“To provide unrestricted access to reliable information so that federal employees can prepare for all aspects of retirement.”
This mission helps focus our day-to-day interactions at Dugan Brown. As we consistently provide individuals with reliable details about the federal retirement system, we’re not just sharing information – we’re taking another step down the path that brings us closer to realizing our vision.
Our Core Values
Integrity first • Service before self
Excellence in all we do • Mindfulness at all times
We proudly base our first three core values on the same ideals held by the Air Force—integrity, service, and excellence. Mindfulness, our fourth core value, ensures a conscious application of these principles in all aspects of our work, serving as the linchpin that unifies and propels our cause with purpose and dedication.
