Why do business with Ruffcorn Insurance?
Unlike a captive, or direct insurance company who only offers their own proprietary products, our agency is 100% independent of any one company. Many insurance consumers don’t fully understand just how important that really is.
When it comes to something as important as insurance, it’s imperative that you work with an agency who has an in-depth knowledge of multiple insurance products, companies, and guidelines — not just one.
At the end of the day, what separates one agent from another, is their ability to proactively service their policy holders, and their knowledge of the insurance industry, products, and different situations that may present themselves to their clients.
Independent Agent Vs. The Rest
Here is a quick comparison of the differences between an independent agency like us, and the various other types of companies that are out there:

He received a Bachelor’s of Business in Accountancy from Western Illinois University in 1999 then moved back to Keokuk in 2003 to start Ruffcorn Insurance Agency, after meeting his wife.
Ryan has two wonderful daughters, Allie and Isabelle whom he enjoys entertaining. On his free time, he also enjoys weightlifting, golfing and watching Iowa Hawkeye athletic events. So go Hawkeyes!
