A Change of Leadership at The Thompson Agency


Effective January 1, 2014 

Frank Thompson has assumed the Presidency of The Thompson Agency.  A 34-year veteran of wholesale insurance product marketing, he is no stranger to its escalating challenges. Under his leadership we will continue to inspire your trust with integrity and unparallelled marketing support.
Did you know that over 42% of Main Street Americans have no Life Insurance?  That represents 52 million American adults with household incomes between $50,000 and $250,000, and of those who do own life insurance, 40% recognize that they need more. The average American only has enough life insurance to cover 3.6 years of income.  A majority does not believe they have enough life insurance to meet their families’ long-term needs.  -- 2010 U.S. Life Insurance Study, LIMRA

So, do you think there's a market for Life Insurance out there?  We do, and it is our mission to help you find it and serve it.  Meet our Team

Life Insurance for People with Health Issues

Not everyone is a tri-athlete...

We all have health histories, and several of our Life Insurance companies have experience in adjusting premiums to compensate for additional risk.

Here's our 5-step approach:

1. Don't assume your Client won't qualify for Life Insurance. We've had success in obtaining affordable life insurance coverage for people with histories of: 
    EKG Tracing
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disorders
  • Stroke
  • Sleep Apnea
  • Hepatitis C
  • Depression
  • Smoking
  • ... and more
2. Call The Thompson Agency at 800-842-8289 for a confidential discussion of your client's needs and concerns.
3. We will initiate inquires on your behalf to test the waters on your client's insurability.
4. We will determine the probable outcome before you apply for the insurance.
5. Apply for Life Insurance based on our preliminary assessment.
