Our Mission Statement

Established in 1936, Merit Insurance has grown to become one of the largest independent insurance agencies in the state of Connecticut. We provide our clients with personal service, superior Employee Benefits, and Personal and Commercial insurance products, and Surety, and Risk Management services. Our relentless focus is on flexible and stable Risk Management programs that match the needs of our clients.

Our Guarantee

We will correspond openly, honestly and as frequently as you request based on our Merit Service Plan Agreement to ensure you are always kept abreast of all issues concerning your company. Whether it is a resolution to a problem, status updates of industry issues or just regular periodic exchanges of ideas to address emerging needs, we will ensure that you receive timely and accurate information to make informed decisions for your business. Regardless of the medium, our goal will be to make certain your communication needs will always be met.

Key Objectives

  • Understanding our clients’ needs.
  • Maintaining a proactive approach to risk management. Identifying client risks and exposures and providing the most complete coverages available.
  • Focusing on value; price does not necessarily equal value.
  • Using only the most stable and responsive insurance carriers in the marketplace that meet the highest solvency and service standards. These carriers include The Hartford, Travelers, Chubb, OneBeacon, New London County, Peerless, Harleysville, HealthNet, Oxford, Anthem, Cigna, and Aetna among others.
  • Focusing on employee training and continuing education.
  • Offering 24 hour service. A Merit Insurance professional is available anytime, anywhere.
