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!

Are You Driving for LYFT or UBER? Are You Insured Correctly?

Two peer-to-peer trends that are growing in popularity are ride-sharing and personal vehicle sharing, or car-sharing. Most people do not realize that their personal auto insurance policy may not cover them if they were to suffer a loss using either service. Ride-sharing involves a transportation network company (TNC), such as Uber or Lyft, which provides prearranged transportation services for compensation. This is done by using a digital network (app) to connect passengers with drivers using...
