Stuart Benjamin


Stuart Benjamin, ChFC, graduated from the University of Georgia in 1977, joined the MONY Group, and began a career in helping people learn how to make sound financial decisions. This journey has lasted for more than 39 years and taken him through 20 years as an instructor at Samford University teaching, "Retirement Planning Today", as well as numerous educational seminars for such companies as Energen, Alabama Power, Southern Nuclear, and Vulcan Materials. Stuart's desire to serve his clients and see them walk away with a clearer understanding of their assets, and how to use them to their best advantage, keeps him motivated toward continual growth.

When not involved in his business, Stuart enjoys exercising, the outdoors, camping, snow skiing, gardening, and playing golf. His passion for cooking and traveling keeps him and his family well-fed and moving.


Stuart Benjamin is proud to have been recognized as a Chairman's Level advisor for 2016—a distinction based on annual production attained by just 3 percent of advisors affiliated with Commonwealth Financial Network.

Each year, Commonwealth, the broker/dealer–RIA that helps us process investment transactions on your behalf, recognizes Chairman's Level advisors by inviting them to an exclusive gathering of their peers, leading industry experts, and Commonwealth home office staff. Chairman's Level advisors benefit from an intensive learning and networking experience designed to help them hone their expertise, share best practices, and provide ever-higher levels of service, education, and leadership to their clients.
