Who We Are New

A Message from Benton P. White, CPIA, RHP
Owner of Benton White Insurance .....

We began on October 1, 1978 and we haven't stopped since. Beginning as a leading life insurance producer in the middle Tennessee area, Benton White Insurance has moved straight ahead adapting our business model through the years to keep current with economic conditions and have continued to bring quality insurance companies aboard that offer safe and competitively priced insurance products. With all of the changes we have seen in our economy over these many years, my agency hasn't missed a claim payment nor have we stepped aside from offering competively priced premiums for the best coverage's. Others have failed to be there when many needed them and their policies have been priced in such a way that they have reduced their coverage's and premiums that continue to be unaffordable for many.

Benton White Insurance is an independent agency licensed to sell ALL lines of insurance in Tennessee. That includes life and medical insurance from some of the leading companies in the country!

We're a member agency with PIA of Tennessee which supports and enhances our basic belief in the independent agency system. Unlike many ONE COMPANY ONLY agencies, we are here in your area with the opportunity of shopping insurance plans from multiple carriers. We can find competitively priced insurance products that fits YOUR needs and we like the fact that we have many quality companies to offer you.

When it comes to connecting with our customers, we offer a myriad of ways:

We are here when you need us! We answer our phone quickly and handle your business immediately and efficiently. We don't take our service responsibility lightly and never will. We lead the independent agency system with paperless technology in our office. Because of that, we can produce what you need immediately, in real-time - safely and securely.

So I think you'll find us to be very different from other insurance agencies. We strive to be different because we know there are many insurance agencies that sell insurance. That's why our primary goal is to SERVICE what we sell. Selling with no service is short term. We're about long term relationships here and we work hard to 'EARN" your business! That's why many have been with us for more than 30 years as we have served their insurance needs! We're ready to serve yours as well!

Contact us if we can help!

Our Insurance Rates are STABLE! And It's GREAT to see!

Many of our customers don't realize that I personally review each policy that renews in my agency annually. I block out several hours to review how a customer's rates have been over time and what they can expect in premium on their next renewal.  Sometimes, it's painful to see some of the increases that are caused by an event that involved the customer.  There are a number of reasons a rate can change from excessive claim activity to at-fault accidents, traffic citations and many other premium affecting...

Minimize your Risk of Distracted Driving

As the spring season gets fully underway, families gear up for spring break car trips or college visits. With better weather, more drivers take day trips or plan weekend getaways. This all adds up to more drivers on the road, and more potential for distracted driving – which also increases the odds of traffic accidents with bodily injuries. April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month, the time of year when the National Safety Council and other organizations join forces to heighten awareness of...

Questions? We've got answers!

You buy insurance to protect your finances from life's surprises. But unless you know the finer points of your policies, you could be left with another surprise -- no coverage where you thought you had it.  We get questions almost daily asking is this covered?  We do our best to give the most accurate and easy to understand answers we can offer.  I thought it might be good to share some of the more common questions (and one not so common) that we get here in the agency!  Hopefully, this will help...
