Auto

The simple truth about auto insurance is that it usually comes to mind on two occasions: when we buy it and when we need to use it. Do you have the coverage and deductible that’s right for you? Maybe it’s time to take another look. Are you purchasing coverage for the first time? We can help you get it right.

Our independent agency offers insurance coverage for:

  • Cars and trucks
  • Recreational vehicles
  • Boats
  • Motorcycles
  • Cargo trailers and accessories

Being an independent agency means we work with a variety of carriers. What does that mean for you? Choice—in coverage and pricing—that you won’t always find with other agencies. Contact us for a free assessment and quote on auto insurance.

“When it comes to handling the Human Resource functions for an employer like Sauder Village, I need to rely on vendors who I can count on. For the Sauder Village health insurance plan there is no one else I could think of turning to than Andres Oneil & Lowe. We have approximately 450 employees and with that comes a lot of responsibility to make sure all HR needs are met. With only a department of two, we can rest assured that AOL is taking care of things that we simply do not have time for. From open enrollment to participant changes, AOL has handled everything for us. We hope this relationship can last for many years to come!”

Life

Although death is a fact of life, it’s one many fail to plan for. Having a life insurance policy not only provides peace of mind during your lifetime, it will provide protection for your loved ones and family members in the event of your passing.

If others depend on you for financial support, part of your financial plan should include how you will provide for them in the event of your death. Purchasing a life insurance policy is a safety net that ensures your loved ones’ future financial obligations are met.

Think you don’t need life insurance? Think again.

I’m single, so I don’t have a family to take care of.
Life insurance can be used for funeral expenses and to pay off debts, relieving your loved ones of the financial burden.

I’m young, so I don’t need it now.
When you’re young, life insurance is more affordable. Anything can happen at any time, and purchasing a policy now will protect your family from the unexpected.

My spouse is the primary breadwinner, so my income won’t need to be replaced.
Although it may not be essential to replace your income, your spouse may need help with childcare, housework and more.

We’re financially stable and have ample savings for the unexpected.
Have you factored in estate taxes? Certain policies can help protect assets and retirement funds.

Life Insurance Options

Term Life Insurance

Just as its name implies, term life insurance covers you for a specific period of time, or term, that you choose. Since it offers a death benefit but no cash value, term life insurance is an inexpensive way to protect your beneficiaries for a specified period of time.

Term life insurance is ideal for those who have a temporary need for protection, for those who need a large amount of insurance protection but have limited cash, or for those with specific business needs, such as additional coverage for a key employee.

Renewal term life insurance can be renewed at the end of the term, at the option of the policyholder and without evidence of insurability, for a limited number of successive terms. It can also be converted, or exchanged for a permanent insurance policy, without evidence of insurability down the road.

Once your term expires, so does your coverage. With term life insurance, rates generally increase with age.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole life is the most basic type of permanent life insurance. It provides coverage that lasts a lifetime and also builds up a cash value that you can borrow against, withdraw or use to pay future premiums.

A life insurance policy with a cash value is ideal for those who have a lifetime need for insurance protection, prefer stable premiums over the life of the policy, want a policy that allows them to build tax-deferred values, and value the high degree of coverage the policy affords. While rates for a whole life insurance policy remain stable over the life of the policy, premiums are initially costlier than for term insurance.

Umbrella

Home insurance? Check. Auto insurance? Check. Life insurance? Check. Complete coverage? Not quite. For many individuals and families, a personal umbrella policy provides the extra layer of protection needed for complete coverage.

What is an umbrella policy?
It’s a policy that provides expanded coverage—over and above your other policies—to protect people and assets.

Who needs an umbrella policy?
There isn’t a one size fits all answer. You may be a good candidate if you have a pool, a teen driver or if you frequently entertain.

Why have an umbrella policy?
An umbrella policy picks up where other coverage leaves off. Without it, anything beyond your primary coverage would come from your pocket. With it, you have additional dollars available.

Our local, experienced agents can help determine if an umbrella policy is right for you. We’re here to learn about your individual needs and risks, making a personalized recommendation. Contact us today to get started.

“Our family farming and cattle feeding business had been with our previous company for over fifty years.

We were reviewing and comparing insurance from several different agencies and companies. Melinda Robinson immediately started working and spent countless hours taking line item by line item comparing rates and coverage for the many facets of our operation. She is very detailed and competent and checked each item thoroughly consulting us numerous times with questions making sure everything was covered correctly. She brought many items to our attention that we had not considered previously and then gave us several options for rates and coverage. The finalized coverage and payment plan we chose saved provided substantial monetary savings plus we had much more coverage than with the previous company.

Melinda was very professional and we felt she had our best interest in mind as she worked. We appreciated her immediate attention and diligent work to complete our plan quickly and efficiently while still being very hospitable and easy to work with. After our initial call to the different companies, Melinda had much of her work done for us before any other company, including our previous company, contacted us to even set up an appointment. She was prompt to call back if we had questions or other items to consider.”
