The Shepler & Fear Difference...
In June 2009 Rob Shepler and Dave Fear, Sr. formed the Shepler & Fear General Agency, Inc. (SFGA) and began operations as a wholesale employee benefit agency specializing in small and large group programs. With over sixty years of experience in the industry, SFGA works with health insurance professionals who desire more personalized service with a higher level of industry and product knowledge.
Many general agencies can "spreadsheet" programs of carrier plans and benefits, but SFGA takes a more consultative approach in the way they do business. Finding solutions for specific challenges that employers of all size pose to their brokers is what SFGA does, and does well.
How is SFGA different from other general agencies?
Most general agencies represent a large number of insurers and health plans on a wholesale basis, and provide a valuable service in terms of providing alternatives for agents to show their clients. Additionally many general agencies provide proposal and "quoting" services so that agents can better serve the needs of their clients.
We are general agent distributors for a number of fine carriers and invite you to contact us about how to find a solution for your client's needs using one or more of our carrier partners.
