A Different Kind of Brokerage House
Pinney Insurance Center, Inc. began as the R. Jan Pinney General Agency of Transamerica Occidental Life Insurance Company in 1972. Since our founding over 40 years ago, we’ve expanded from a regional, single-company agency to a national distributor with thousands of contracted agents and offices in California, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, and Washington.
Incorporated as Pinney Insurance Center, Inc. in 1975, we continue to represent Transamerica and have added over 60 additional carriers. Our goal is to provide our agents and brokers with the best possible product solutions from the nation’s top insurance providers. Headquartered in Roseville, California, we maintain a small-agency feel with personal attention and a can-do attitude, while providing the resources of a national marketing organization.
Our Service Guarantee
You and your clients are partners in our business. We take that commitment – and our service to you – seriously. When you work with us, we offer this 8-point guarantee:
We’ll order your exams and labs within 24 hours of receiving your application. You focus on selling and we’ll do everything else.
We’ll order all Attending Physician Statements upon receiving notice that one is required. We’ll also follow up every 5 business days until the APS is received. You sell, we handle the details.
With your permission, we’ll call your clients as your assistant to get missing or additional information, saving you time and effort. You sell, and we’ll follow up with your clients to make sure your cases are processed quickly.
When you call 800-823-4852 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Pacific Time, Monday through Friday, you’ll talk to a live person and have the convenience of leaving a detailed voicemail for a specific case manager or brokerage director, if you want to. You sell, we help in any way we can.
We’ll provide you with online status reports on all your pending cases. Log on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and see what’s happening with any or all of your cases in two easy clicks.
Every time something changes on one of your cases (or when nothing happens for 5 business days), we’ll provide you with an immediate update via email, fax, or regular mail – just tell us how you want to be updated and we’ll deliver.
We’ll use all our tools, contacts, and agency knowledge to obtain the best possible rating on your cases. In negotiating offers with a carrier, we’ll be your advocate.
We’ll always provide prompt, friendly, efficient, and courteous service to help you succeed in any way we can.
