Radio Show

Tune in to our Ask the Expert radio show on WNIS AM 790 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesday of every month. The radio show focuses on financial planning strategies for Federal, state, and military members, as well as private sector and those making Social Security decisions. Michael and John co-host, and they deliver a unique message each show that is designed to be timely and pertinent. Their favorite part of the show is the live call-in questions. They not only help the caller, they help other folks who may have the same question but are not comfortable with calling the station. What makes the show special is that they will answer the question you have, as well as the one you may not know to ask. This is a great opportunity to learn more about our firm, your benefits, and how you can become part of the Mason & Associates family.

Mason & Associates

Mason & Associates, LLC is an independent financial planning firm located in Newport News, Virginia. With over 50 years of combined experience, Michael and his brother, Kenneth, have built a successful practice, offering comprehensive financial planning to all types of employees, with specialized knowledge of Federal benefits. Our success has created the opportunity to expand our practice to include members of the Armed Forces, Virginia State Employees (VRS), Huntington Ingalls Industries personnel, and all private sector employees. We know that the cornerstone of a solid financial plan is a complete understanding of a client’s employer-sponsored benefits package. With this knowledge, we can help clients complement their benefits with private plans.


Mason & Associates, LLC is a financial planning firm for State and Federal employees. We are a branch of an independent broker/dealer and are fully licensed, which allows our advisors the full range of financial solutions available in the industry. Understanding the nuances of various State and Federal defined benefit pensions separates our firm from others. You do not have to be a State or Federal employee to enjoy our exceptional planning services, but if you are, you absolutely want Mason & Associates on your team. Family-owned with traditional values and fully staffed with professional, courteous employees, we are a company doing business the way you always wanted a company to do business.


Mason & Associates, LLC will redefine the financial planning industry, client by client. Understanding that no financial plan can exist without thorough knowledge of a client’s defined benefit pension, Social Security options, and employer benefits must be the starting point for any financial advice. We will manage growth through referrals and change lives through direct relationships, as well as radio-based education. We will never outgrow our unwavering commitment to personalized solutions and to recruiting team members with unquestionable character. We will build a practice that transcends its founders to continue providing consistent financial planning advice for clients and their families.
