Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer has proclaimed February 25, 2021, as Independent Insurance Agents Day! At Mason-McBride, we’re proud to be independent insurance agents and serve our commercial lines, personal lines, and group benefits clients!

WHEREAS, independent insurance agents play a critical role in Michigan’s economy by providing quality financial information and guiding individuals, families, and businesses in making important decisions; and,

WHEREAS independent insurance agents are insurance sales agents identified as one of Michigan’s Hot 50 high-demand, high-wage careers through 2024;
WHEREAS, independent insurance agents promote the positive image of careers in insurance through working with local high schools and colleges to expose students to careers as insurance agents; and,

Why Work with an Independent Insurance Agent?
When researching insurance experts, you’ll run into independent and captive agents. A captive agent is an insurance agent that works for one insurance company. An independent agent represents multiple insurance companies, which means their most significant interest is you, not the carrier.
Independent agents have your best interest in mind. We don’t benefit from the carrier selling you a policy; we benefit from finding you the insurance coverage you need at an affordable price. What separates us from the rest is our ability to service our policyholders proactively, our knowledge of the industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to our clients
