Change and Continuity

The BIG Change - March 1, we are changing our name to WHA Insurance. We are excited about joining Wilson Heirgood Associates - WHA Insurance. As WHA, we will have greater capacity through carrier appointments and support services. We will continue our personal and professional commitment to comprehensive planning and attention to detail as we work with you to find ways to add value to our relationship.

Your insurance company and contract will continue the same as it is now. We will answer your questions and take care of changes you experience that affect your insurance and business.
