Our Story

Eckhardt Financial Group started when spouses Dick and Jan Eckhardt joined Aid Association for Lutherans (AAL) in 1987, serving the local Altamont area. A decade later, their sons, Ryan and Dustin, joined the family business, adding their expertise in wealth management and tax-efficient strategies.
