Why Choose Us?


We Put You First

We don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach because life insurance is personal, and your needs are as unique as you are. At the Hanford Agency, our life insurance agents take time to fully understand your personal goals, your family’s needs and your unique financial situation, now and into the future. Taking the time to get to know you means you’ll have peace of mind and security for your family, as well as an insurance plan that meets your unique needs.


We’re Independent

We work with a variety of life insurance carriers, which means you have an advantage in terms of selection, price, quality and the type of plans that can meet your needs. Insurance carriers are not all the same and life insurance isn’t merely 'whole life' or 'term'. There are more options than you probably think. Our experts can explain your options and help you find a plan that will cover your family for the level of comfort that you need.


We’re Local

Established in 1855, the Hanford Agency is licensed in Illinois, Iowa and Wisconsin and has offices in Erie, Geneseo, Prophetstown, Atkinson, Toulon and Port Byron.
