We provide expertise in group medical and dental, disability, life, accident and vision plans as well as Section 125 and 401(k) retirement plans. We also have a law firm, Jackson Lewis, on retainer to handle any legal problems.

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. Our golf and country club group employee benefits program for clubs in the tri-state area has been endorsed by the Metropolitan Golf Association for over 35 years.

Clients we insure include for profit and not-for-profit companies from various industries as well as individual clients. Our goal is to provide personal service. We meet with each client to determine their specific needs and offer solutions to meet those needs.

Services include:

  • Coordination of employee group meetings and on-site presentations

What is an Independent Insurance Agent?

When you decide to buy a car, you wouldn’t purchase the first one you see. What if one day the automobile industry decided to make only one type of car, one make and one model. You wouldn’t have a choice!

The same situation holds true for insurance. You need insurance to drive a car, to purchase a house, to protect your family’s financial future and to run a small business. But if there was only one insurance company that offered only one type of insurance, you wouldn’t have a choice. The only solution would be going to that one company.

With an independent insurance agent, you have choices. Independent agents are not tied to any one insurance company. One of the advantages of using an independent agent is that he or she works to satisfy your needs. You are using an expert for an important financial decision.

An independent agent has several companies that he or she can approach to get you the best coverage at the best price. And your independent agent will know the companies with the most efficient claims departments to recover your losses as quickly as possible.

When you buy insurance, you want an advocate who will properly assess the risks you face and give you an objective analysis of the marketplace, because it’s up to you to make the final choice.
