MAPLE GROVE, MN--(Marketwire - Nov 6, 2012) - TopLine Federal Credit Union is introducing the TopLine Insurance Agency, LLC, a full-service in-house independent insurance agency, offering home and auto insurance.
"The most well-known credit union tradition is to offer low-cost auto and home loans to members, paired with superior personal service," says Harry Carter, president and CEO of TopLine . "We're simply adding auto and homeowners insurance to the mix."
To introduce the new service, TopLine will be hosting free, no-obligation coverage comparisons at each of its five branches with TopLine Insurance Agency agents during a week of open houses, Mon., Nov. 12 through Sat., Nov. 17. Plus, those that stop in can add their name to a drawing to win one of several prizes, including iPads, HD TVs and VISA Gift Cards, while enjoying free refreshments and giveaways.
"It's the right time for us to add an insurance agency for our members," adds Carter. "We've long offered life, disability and long-term care insurance through our investment services division, which has always been a good value. Now we're happy to also offer a wide range of auto and home insurance options, all with the credit union hallmark of premium personal service."
The TopLine Insurance Agency will offer home and auto insurance options from up to 20 separate insurance companies, including well-recognized brands like Metropolitan, Progressive, Safeco, Travelers, and The Hartford. Also included will be options from companies specializing in business insurance, recreational vehicles and even collector vehicles -- making it a truly full-line independent insurance agency.
"Adding auto and home insurance is a natural extension of what we have been doing for years," says Carter. "Our experienced insurance representatives -- offering individualized, personal competitive comparisons and customizable coverage -- will mean that we can help our members find the best and most appropriate coverage for their situation."
"TopLine's one of just a handful of credit unions in Minnesota featuring a wholly-owned, full line independent, in-house agency," adds Carter. "It's one more important way to demonstrate the real credit union difference: as a banking cooperative our customers are also our owners, which means their best interests always come first."
