Workers Compensation Insurance

AWMA has reached an agreement with First Pioneer Insurance Agency and the Meadowbrook Insurance Group for them to offer our clients in Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Missouri the opportunity to purchase workers’ compensation insurance from them.  Pioneer Insurance Agency is located in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

If you have property in Kentucky & Tennessee, First Pioneer Insurance can write you a policy for both states.  Kentucky residents won’t have the issue with KEMI saying they won’t cover the workers while they are in Tennessee.  Also, there isn’t any need for a policy in each state anymore if you have a policy from First Pioneer Insurance Agency.

Give Clayton Evans’ team at First Pioneer Insurance a call at 800-547-1495.
