Tailoring a program to fit the needs of your top talent will allow you to recruit and retain the best in class. Whether it is a medical plan that can close the gap on deductibles or a disability plan that protects the income of your top earners, GWA has the solution to keep you looking your best.

Individual Life Insurance

As your life changes, so does the need for asset protection. Securing your family’s future against financial loss is a major component of estate planning, and critical for preserving your assets.

The Legacy...NFL Quarterback, Gary Wood

For David and Eric Wood, excellence is part of the family name. As second generation insurance experts, they learned from their father, NFL Quarterback, Gary Wood about dedication to greatness and never letting your team down.

Gary was drafted from Cornell University in the 1964 NFL draft by the NY Giants. He played 63 games with the NFL with a passer rating of 54.5%. After a successful career in football, Gary went on to open a successful insurance firm in NYC. He was inducted into the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame in 1996.

Frequently Asked Questions

I just received a tremendous rate increase. How do I know I’m getting the best from my broker?

Why should I offer Voluntary Benefits?

Voluntary Benefits such as life, disability, critical-illness and accident insurance are offered through an employer but paid for partially or solely through payroll contribution. They are used to enhance the employee benefit menu and fill gaps left by high deductibles and other out of pocket costs.
