The Wheatley Agency was founded in 1972 by Kenneth P. Coyle, Sr., CLU, a retired United States Navy veteran. Prior to starting the Wheatley Agency, Ken was a manager at CIGNA (formerly Connecticut General) for 18 years. From there he formed his own independent agency, specializing in employee benefits, and established the Wheatley Agency with business partner Howard Trieber. Ken built the Wheatley Agency through hard work and grew by developing strong business relationships. Ken’s motto: “Meet Your Clients’ Needs and Provide Superior Service.” After almost 40 years, we still hold to these basic principles.
In 1980 Kenneth P. Coyle, Jr., CLU, ChFC, joined the Wheatley Agency. Ken, Jr. helped the agency continue to grow, expanding the client base by offering new insurance products and developing new programs.
Located in Garden City, NY, the Wheatley Agency is a full-service insurance agency. We provide expertise in group medical and dental, disability, life, accident and vision plans as well as Section 125 and 401(k) retirement plans.
Understanding that employers can not afford to provide all the coverage needed by employees, we provide voluntary benefit plans. These plans are paid for by employees through payroll deduction. We offer many options including: term, universal and whole life, cancer, specified disease, critical illness, accident, dental and vision care, short term disability, long term disability, long term care and medical supplement plans.
