Keystone Insurers Group
You depend on us, as your insurance advisor, to protect you and your business. But what you may not realize is that our services are backed by a powerful partner, Keystone Insurers Group. Keystone Insurers Group has provided an opportunity for highly successful agencies all across the nation to join forces and become part of one larger elite network with greater resources, more bargaining power and significantly more clout in the insurance world. In 2013, The Harbin Agency qualified to become a member of Keystone. The selection process was thorough and difficult. We are honored to be a part of something so exclusive and so influential.
Becoming a member of Keystone now makes us part of the 3rd largest privately-owned agency in the country with more than 260 other partner agencies located in 9 states (and growing). As a member of Keystone, our premium volume has effectively jumped to $2.2 billion, and we now have access to more than 200 companies. Keystone employs over 70 insurance professionals dedicated to serving the partner agencies and their clients.

You need an insurance plan that embraces all of the things that make your business unique. As a Keystone partner, we have access to products, services, and programs you might not expect from an independent agent. Here is a brief summary of the solutions we offer.
- Specialty Programs – Provides custom commercial insurance programs for businesses that have significant coverage and risk management challenges.
- Risk Management – Identifies, evaluates, and manages the loss exposures common to large commercial ventures. Keystone can strengthen your existing risk management team, or act as a leased risk management department.

- Claims Management – Maintains relationships with high-level insurance company claims executives, providing dedicated assistance when claims occur.

Business & Risk Management
Business is unpredictable.
Buying business insurance shouldn’t be.
By most accounts, the goal of doing business is maximizing profits, while minimizing costs. This means making strategic plans that account for expected costs and delineate actionable plans that shrewdly reinvest the profits. Keeping costs to an acceptable level entails finding affordable, comprehensive business insurance that can reduce the cost of unexpected losses, like natural disasters, lawsuits, employee injuries, and more.
But, how much business insurance is too much?
How much is too little?
State regulations will determine basic insurance requirements. Among the commonly required policies are workers compensation, unemployment, and disability insurance. But these may not be enough. Business insurance packages can include any of the following coverages:

- General Liability
- Errors & Omissions
- Commercial Auto
- Commercial Property/li>
