Most homeowners insurance policies do not cover damage caused by flooding. This is important to check when getting flood insurance quotes. If your community participates in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), you can buy flood insurance coverage directly from the federal government through the National Flood Insurance Program.

Personal & Business Auto

Auto accidents can happen, even to the best of us. Auto insurance can help cover repairs to your vehicle and medical costs in the event of an accident. Think of it as your firewall against economic disaster should you be found at fault for property damage or injuries to others. 


Protect your business with commercial insurance.  Select insurance coverage against loss or damage to your property, employees and assets. Commercial insurance offers options designed to cover your business in case of employee injury, accidents and many natural disasters—including coverage for property damage, legal liability, business auto, employee-related risks, loss prevention and more.


Since your home may be the biggest investment you ever make, it is important to understand your home insurance coverage options. 

Homeowners insurance may cover losses to covered property caused by weather, non-weather and sudden or accidental loss. Check with your policy for details


In today’s financial environment, it’s important to know that there are some things you don’t have to worry about. Life insurance can be the foundation of financial security for you and your family. It can be the base upon which other insurance and investment decisions are built.

General liability

With so many terms, acronyms, and coverages, it can make your head spin. Fortunately, we have answers. General liability (GL) insurance helps protect a business in the event physical injury, property damage, or personal and advertising injury occur as a result of the business' operations.


Wind and water combined are devastating. After your roof is damaged or shingles blow off during a storm, water can enter your home and ruin everything it touches. That's why having Wind Insurance (often called a Windstorm, Wind and Hail, or a Hurricane Policy) is so important. It covers what your Homeowners Insurance won't. For people in 19 states, this is a costly reality.
