Insurance 101


What are some of the advantages of an independent agent?

Insurance is not a simple product. That's why it is important for you to have a relationship with an experienced, educated insurance professional to guide you through the insurance-buying process and be there for you whenever the need arises. Only independent agents represent more than one insurance carrier and can offer you choice—something that name brand captive agents and toll-free/online insurance representatives cannot.

Independent insurance agents know the insurance industry and care about your needs. They take time to develop a personal relationship with you and find out how to best protect your belongings, your lifestyle and your loved ones. Then, they will review the policies of several different companies and help you select the best possible coverage at the best possible price.

While insurance policy terminology can be confusing, an independent agent can be an asset and bring you peace of mind. Independent insurance agents can answer all your coverage questions, talk with your insurance company directly in a time of need and can get the process rolling when a claim needs to be filed—whether that be with your insurance company or an at-fault driver's insurance company after an accident—and can help make sure you receive a prompt and fair settlement.
