The Hartford announced today that it is making its award-winning AARP®-branded auto insurance program available through Palmer Hampton Insurance of Cynthiana.
Palmer Hampton Insurance was chosen after satisfying a number of eligibility requirements, which included: demonstrating a commitment to community service; meeting a high-level of business and ethical standards; and completing a training program designed to address the needs of the 50+ population.
“For more than 25 years, the industry-leading AARP-branded auto insurance program from The Hartford has been extremely popular,” said Jim Flynn, vice president, The Hartford. “Much of the success of this program is due to innovative product features and a commitment to truly understand and support our customers. We are thrilled to now be able to offer these benefits through our independent agent partners.”
According to research from The Hartford, the majority of AARP members prefer the advice and counsel of a local agent when making decisions about their insurance. Based on this research and strong customer demand, The Hartford is offering the AARP-branded auto insurance program through select, authorized independent agents. These products were previously only available from The Hartford by phone, the Internet and by mail.
The AARP-branded auto insurance program is designed in consultation with The Hartford Advance 50 Team, which helps to tailor products and services specifically to the interests and needs of Boomers and older adults.
Other unique hallmarks of the program include:
• Lifetime Continuation Agreement — assures that the customer’s insurance policy will not be dropped as long as a few simple requirements are met.
• Standard 12-month rate protection versus the traditional six month policies offered by most companies.
The Palmer-Hampton Agency has been servicing the insurance needs of Harrison and surrounding counties since 1963.
The agency was started by Wilson Palmer in 1963 and Doug Hampton joined the agency in 1973.
Originally known as Wilson Palmer Insurance Agency, in 1976 the name was changed to The Palmer-Hampton Agency.
