HRCCU launches insurance agency through partnership with Insuritas
CORINTH, NY AND EAST WINDSOR, CT (July 22, 2021) — HRCCU recently partnered with Insuritas, a full-service digital insurance agency platform, to begin offering insurance brokerage services to HRCCU’s more than 24,000 members. The new insurance agency, HRCCU Insurance Agency, launched as of June 30, 2021. It is engineered to offer personal and ancillary insurance products following HRCCU’s convenient, digital-first model.
“As part of our strategic planning process, we continually examine additional financial services we can make available to our members. After careful analysis, we determined that through the creation of a CUSO to provide insurance offerings in collaboration with Insuritas, we could provide our members with new options that further position them to work toward their financial goals and manage their financial risks,” said Paula Sheely, Chief Retail Officer at HRCCU. “Affordability, convenience, and quality of insurance offerings are some of the benefits the agency will provide.”
HRCCU Insurance Agency will include more than 40 carrier partners and will offer products including auto, home, life, renter’s, pet, identity theft, and travel, among many others.
