Four generations in insurance in California!
With over 40 years' experience in Health Insurance, our agency is dedicated to serving Silicon Valley small-to-medium size business and individuals and families. Primarily we offer group health insurance plans for small to mid-sized employers. We work with several insurance carriers and providers, including but not limited to: Anthem Blue Cross™, Blue Shield of California™, Aetna™, Health Net™, Kaiser Permanente™, UnitedHealthcare™, California Choice™, and Delta Dental™.
In 1974, our founder, Kirk Stoddard, CLU, LUTCF, started as a health insurance broker under his father, Rolph Stoddard's agency in San Jose with Aetna. Rolph was a well respected leading life and health producer for Aetna in San Jose for over 40 years. Kirk's grandfather, Harry L. Stoddard, was a career marine underwriter and marine claims adjuster based in San Francisco. In 1925, he was even president of the Marine Underwiters Association of San Francisco. Recently, in 2014, Kirk's son Scott Stoddard, joined the firm as a health broker and account manager so we now have a fourth-generation in the insurance business here in the Bay Area!
We serve many small to mid-size employers. Our mission is to treat our clients like family and make our customer's buying experience as simple and painless as possible by offering either online enrollment or face-to-face meetings with each of their employees. We are licensed, bonded, insured, and also uniquely bilingual in Spanish!
Kirk also branched out in 1978 and became a Farmers Insurance agent so as to create a truly multi-line agency with the addition of products such as auto, home, life, commercial and workers compensation insurance.
Sue Stoddard, Kirk's wife, joined the agency as a customer service rep in 1980. Licensed in property and casualty, she has serviced the agency's Farmers clients with great distinction and earned high marks for client satisfaction and retention. She is presently studying for her life and health license.
Eric Fusco joined the agency in 2015 as our in-house administrative assistant, to help us with our employer groups in the area of Cobra, HIPAA, ERISA compliance as well as payroll deductions.
