About Beneficial Insurance Solutions

Beneficial Insurance Solutions is a small, independent insurance brokerage where personal service & long-term relationships are more than just catch phrases.

We like to get to know our clients, have a little fun in our work and do our best every time. We see every new client as someone we still want to be working with years from now – and that is usually what happens.

Our History: In 2003 & 2007, Ron Farrell purchased Bencharski Insurance & Caldwell Insurance, respectively. After several improvements to the businesses he acquired, Ron felt it was time to shape a new identity. We believe that the term “Beneficial” really speaks to what we are here to do – provide appropriate coverage, while respecting the value of your dollar. We are here to benefit you.

In addition to our licensed brokers, we have a team of administrative personnel providing integral support for the company, handling many important duties such as answering the phone and greeting clients, data entry, accounting, human resources and much more. Say hi to them when you stop by too!
