Business brief: Granite Falls agency offering AARP auto insurance

Aug. 22, 2013 @ 05:30 PM

The Hartford has announced that it is making its popular AARP-branded auto insurance program available through Granite Insurance in Granite Falls.

In a press release, Granite Insurance said it was chosen after satisfying a number of eligibility requirements, which included: demonstrating a commitment to community service; meeting a high-level of business and ethical standards; and completing a training program designed to address the needs of the 50-plus population.

According to research from The Hartford, the majority of AARP members prefer the advice and counsel of a local agent when making decisions about their insurance, so The Hartford has begun offering the AARP-branded auto insurance program through select independent agents, the press release said.

The AARP-branded auto insurance program is designed in consultation with The Hartford Advance 50 Team, which helps to tailor products and services specifically to the interests and needs of baby boomers and older adults.
