PLC Insurance has been around sine 1961, and though we have grown since our start as a small agency, we still hold true to the core beliefs that started PLC. The goals of PLC Insurance were, and still are, very simple:

  • Excellent care for every client.
  • Provide solid advise and consultation.
  • Educate our clients and their employees about their insurance.
  • Support the community.

We feel that part of being a great insurance agency is giving you the knowledge you need to understand your coverage and exposures. This gives you the information needed to make educated decisions about the insurance you will ultimately purchase. We want you to feel comfortable with the insurance buying process, and with the agents at PLC Insurance. Our benefits division’s business is creating total compensation and benefit solutions that fit with our client’s corporate goals and culture.  Our job, quite simply, is to help our clients be the most competitive they can be.

The world has seen drastic changes since 1961, but the core beliefs at PLC Insurance haven’t budged an inch. We invite you to leave the worrying to us, and do what you do best. 

For more information about our services please visit our website www.plcins.com, or contact Jan Fernandez at Jan@plcins.com or 206.849.7906.
