About Our Agency

At Helwig Insurance Agency, we work for you.

We are your trusted independent insurance agency since 1927.

Home » About Our Agency

Our agency serves a diverse list of clients with a comprehensive range of insurance products. Whether you need a personal policy for your home or car or comprehensive coverage for your business, Helwig Insurance Agency is your partner in protecting what’s important to you.

Helwig Insurance Agency is proud to continue our over 94-year tradition of serving the insurance needs of Indiana County and Western Pennsylvania. Based in Indiana, PA, we provide our valued clients with professional insurance coverage and knowledgeable advice. Our agency operates under the same guiding principles that our founder, Wilfred E. Helwig, established when he opened the office here in 1927. Those principles are simple but vital: quality products, superior customer service, and fair pricing.

Although we’re a small-town agency, we’re full-service, representing top-rated insurance companies and working hard to remain on the leading edge of both industry trends and our clients’ changing needs. We will take the time to learn about you, and then provide a customized suite of insurance products that are suited to your home, automobile, and business needs. Most importantly, we’ll help you find coverage that’s suited to your life.

One of our core values at the agency is serving others. Connie Bence (owner) leads by example, having been named Civic Leader of the Year in 2012 and the recipient of the Indiana County’s Athena Award in 2021. Whether assisting the Salvation Army with winter wear for kids, ringing the holiday kettlebell, or volunteering at the county’s food center, Connie and our staff can often be found lending a hand and a smile.
