ALL ABOUT US
Daily Money Manager
My name is Bill Merrill, and I have resided in southeastern Connecticut for over thirty years. I understand the challenges many people face when trying to manage day-to-day finances. That is why I became a Daily Money Manager - to help seniors and their caregivers pay bills and deal with other money matters.
I have worked in accounting for businesses and school systems for forty years. I know the ins and outs of the banking and insurance industries and can use my experience to help you.
