We’re told in Proverbs (13:22) that a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children, but with today’s tax laws, is it possible to leave a legacy to your children or grandchildren that will not be shared with the government?
Yes, there is!
Bet the title of this post has you wondering what that old adage about the weather has to do with Insurance.
Brought on by Spring storms, March winds can mean anything from a gentle breeze to huge gusts to tornadoes. April showers sometimes mean flooding and those May flowers for June brides lend to thoughts of insuring your love.
Our office will be closed Monday, Dec 24th & Tuesday, Dec. 25th as well as Monday, Dec. 31st and Tuesday, Jan. 1st in observance of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
We will resume normal business hours (9am - 5 pm) on Wednesday, Dec. 26th and Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2019.
As we move through the holidays and into a new year, we hope you'll take some time to browse the many blog posts we've shared over the past year or so and that you'll find a wealth of information beneficial to your life, home, auto and/or Medicare insurance concerns.
When faced with life, home or work changes, we certainly hope you'll give us a call and let us service your insurance needs. It's especially important to insure those new toys you got for Christmas! (ie; boats, jet skis, ATV's, jewelry, artwork, etc.)
Meanwhile - Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
We look forward to serving you in 2019 and beyond....

Purchasing a new home can be fun and exciting, it can also be fraught with fears, insecurities and too many things on your ‘to do’ list. Many people get all caught up in the excitement and forget one of the most important aspects of buying a new home–Insuring it!–then, in a panic, accept the first quote they receive, not understanding the basics of a home insurance policy.
Don’t be one of them.
On the heels of Memorial Day in May and Flag Day in June, July is the month of patriotism since the 4th is the day we celebrate the birth of our country as a nation, independent from English rule.
Even though our break from the British Empire came in 1776, Insurance was sold in the Colonies as early as 1735 in South Carolina. In 1772 Benjamin Franklin along with more than 70 business owners formed a mutual company called “The Philadelphia Contributorship for the Insuring of Houses from Loss by Fire.”
In our previous post we explained what Riders and Endorsements are and gave some examples of these on a P&C policy. Today we’ll talk about riders on Life Insurance products.
Remember, a ‘rider’ is a temporary addition to an insurance policy that can be added or removed that does not change the original benefits stated in a policy and an ‘endorsement’ is a permanent change to increase benefits to an existing policy and both result in additional premiums.
Whether you think of moving as a grand adventure or one of the most stress-filled undertakings you ever endure, changing locations is something many of us do at least once in our lifetime. We’ve compiled a few tips to help you transition a little more smoothly.
Last year we talked a couple of times about safety and travelling. We gave you some Hurricane Evacuation Tips and Vacation Preparedness Tips. We also shared Holiday Safety Tips, Fun in the Sun Safety Tips and Tips for staying safe at Festivals.
As all of these tips revolve around travelling – even though that may not be far from home – I thought it would be great to condense the above-mentioned tips into one, easy-to-find article.
