Chuck DeBenon

CPA/PFS, Financial Advisor

Chuck began his career in the financial industry nearly 30 years ago, after many years as a teacher. His experience in both these areas forms the basis for what we do here at LifePlan Financial—educating our clients about their finances and their long-term financial outlook. Chuck is passionate about helping his clients gain financial confidence through education and long-term support.

Chuck’s interest in financial planning began in 1994, when he and his wife started listening to Dave Ramsey on a local radio station, and he received his CPA license in 1995. When they moved to Texas, they established the first Financial Peace University class in the metro Houston area, and Chuck’s passion for providing others with a financial education took root. In 2000, he became a certified financial counselor through Dave Ramsey’s program, and in 2003, after decades of working for financial giants like Arthur Andersen, he decided to strike out on his own as a financial planner.

Chuck received his Bachelor’s degree in Education from Abilene Christian University, and his Master’s degree in Tax Accounting from the University of North Texas. He continues to educate not only his own clients, but others through Financial Peace University. He is also involved in many local charities and enjoys every opportunity to serve others.

He and his wife, Karen, have been married for 33 years and have four boys together—Kendall, Blake, Parker, and Trevor. They reside in Kingwood, Texas, where Chuck enjoys watching sports, weightlifting, and golfing whenever time allows.
