— Do you have enough life insurance? That's a question people don't often think about. But September is Life Insurance Awareness month and State Farm Insurance agent Thomas Ziegenbalg of West Milford wants to make sure people do think about it.
Ziegenbalg, a lifelong resident of West Milford, has been a part of the insurance industry for 32 years. He began working for State Farm Insurance in 1980, when he was given the opportunity to work in many different departments at the company. These various positions inspired Ziegenbalg and allowed him to move forward with a full-time insurance career of his own.
The Ziegenbalg Agency opened in January, 1996, and the Ziegenbalg team has been servicing the community and the surrounding areas for the past 16 years.
One of the most important aspects The Ziegenbalg Agency sees in the insurance industry is making sure all clients are covered completely in the event that an unforeseen situation was to arise. While all insurance policies are important, the Ziegenbalg Agency wants to spread the word about life insurance.
"Unfortunately, many of us take life for granted and we find ourselves saying, 'That will never happen to me'," said Ziegenbalg. "When something happens, it takes a toll on your whole family, so why not become aware of its effects and take all necessary pre-cautions to ease the mind of your loved ones?"
State Farm Insurance has joined the Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education and many of the nation’s leading life insurance companies to advance a common objective — to make sure Americans and their families remember to take stock of their life insurance needs.
"The Ziegenbalg Agency takes pride in being a part of promoting Life Insurance Awareness month," said Ziegenbalg. "We are here for you and offer friendly, professional service to get you the coverage you deserve. Life insurance is a promise for tomorrow, but we need to talk about it today. Please feel free to contact us or stop by the office if you have any insurance questions, as we’d be happy to help you."
The Ziegenbalg Agency is located at 1616 J Union Valley Road in the Bearfort Shopping village. Ziegenbalg can be reached at 973-728-9169.
