Life & Disability insurance Olean, Cattaraugus County and Western New York State


A discussion about life insurance is on no one’s list of favorite topics. It’s not a very comforting conversation…but avoiding it can rob your family of future comfort and security. Hedley Brook Agency has had this conversation many times before because it’s so very necessary.

Remember: It’s your ability to provide an income that allows your family to live the life they enjoy. Everyone wants to know that, should the unthinkable occur, their family isn’t burdened with financial concerns.

Life Insurance provides for your family, ensuring their financial security at a time when they desperately need assurance and stability. The right life insurance plan can cover a multitude of financial obligations, such as:

Grad students

  • House / Rent Payments
  • Car Payments
  • Utility Bills
  • Tuition Expenses
  • Health Care (insurance, vision, dental, etc.)
  • Burial Expenses …And so much more

Options that make sense

Your need for life insurance will vary according to your particular stage of life. While older, established individuals generally have less debt, their need will probably be less than a family still raising children at home. The professionals at Hedley Brook can help you determine not only the amount of life insurance you need, but also the type of policy best suited for your individual stage of life.

Life insurance options include:

  • Permanent Life
  • Universal Life
  • Whole Life
  • Term Life
  • Group Life (designed for small businesses as an additional benefit for employees)
  • And additional life insurance products

You have questions…we have answers

How much life insurance do I need? Should I go with permanent insurance or term life? How does a Universal Life policy build cash value? Your Hedley Brook agent can answer all of these questions and many, many more. We’ll help you walk through the maze of available life insurance choices so you can avoid common pitfalls security your and provide the family deserves.


Health problem at office workProtection that works when you can’t

Those who have become sick or injured and unable to work can attest to the financial hardships that follow. Those who have benefitted from Disability Insurance can’t imagine NOT having it in place.
Disability Insurance provides you with an income in the event a sickness or injury prevents you from working. You receive an income to help cover your daily expenses while you recuperate. Disability Insurance is generally available in two forms:

  •  Employer-paid and/or government sponsored
  •  These are usually provided at no cost to the recipient
  •  Private Policies
  • A private policy is paid for by the covered individual and provides income when no employer or government program is applicable. It can also provide additional coverage when Employer/Government sponsored programs fail to meet income needs.

Disability coverage is available in both short-term and long-term form. Short-Term Disability coverage provides benefits for a predetermined period of time (usually 13, 26 or 52 weeks). Long-Term Disability policies can provide benefits up to age 65 or at normal retirement age.
Your Hedley Brook agent can help you choose the right disability policy. Protect your income and your financial health with disability insurance from Hedley Brook Agency.
