Our true purpose?
Making your life better through insurance.

Our Company

Schiff Insurance (John J. & Thomas R. Schiff & Co., Inc.) is an insurance agency focused on property, casualty and life insurance for commercial and personal purposes. We are a group of independent agents devoting our individual and collective resources to our client’s best interests.

Jack Schiff Sr., our founder, sold his first insurance policy in 1938. Today, his high standards define our best practices: work hard and care about your customer. We appreciate that competition will improve coverage while advances in technology will benefit better underwriting. The heart of insurance, though, will remain in the trusted value of the independent insurance agent’s commitment to serve you diligently and wisely.

Our goal is to ensure that you sleep well knowing your risk management objectives have been met. More than just dependability, you’ll find strength in our service and empowerment in the program of protection your agent provides. It’s about you—your business, your family and your financial security.

Personal Insurance

The financial hardship caused by a catastrophe, whether it’s in the form of natural disaster or negligent behavior, can be a major disruption to your life. Being unprepared only compounds the stress.

You buy an insurance policy to minimize the financial impact of this misfortune. Our independent insurance professionals provide the comfort and strength of a well thought-out solution to protect what you hold dear.

Engineered for You
You are unique. You deserve an agent who will understand your family’s personal priorities, goals, and life-style. They will work with you to develop an appropriate strategy of coverage terms and limits that covers your unique exposure to risk.
Installed with Confidence
We will negotiate with insurance companies to find the best value in terms of coverage and limits. We will facilitate the coverage being issued and provide council to ensure that the contractual covenants required to keep the coverage effective are fulfilled.
Serviced for Value
Life does not remain static once your coverage is issued. Instead, life evolves, things change and so do your exposures. Our agents remain a constant for you, fully invested in your best interests: protecting your assets. How? By checking in with you periodically and fine-tuning your strategy to keep your coverage in concert with your life-style.
Distress Minimized
Your insurance coverage will provide the funds necessary to replace or protect your assets with as little negative consequences on your lifestyle as realistic. Using a financially sound company with a dignified claims process and adopting life-style practices that minimize your exposures are simple preventative measures that ease the trauma in the event of misfortune.

Our Life Insurance

Life insurance is an extremely useful tool that has a variety of applications depending on your needs. The life insurance agents from Schiff Insurance are your trusted resource for developing a program to suit your specific needs. Life changes and business adapt, consider your life insurance agent as a partner to keep your financial protection in step with your growing business and lifestyle.

Most commonly, families rely on life insurance to protect their finances in the event of a wageearner’s death. This can provide protection for your mortgage, childcare costs, estate or even to fund a retirement.

The business applications of life insurance are equally valuable. Insuring your ability to keep your business intact in the event of a partner’s death or incapacitation is vitally important. Key Person coverage and/or a Life Policy in conjunction with a Buy/Sell agreement are an essential component of any business’s protection strategy.
