General Insurance Services is an independent insurance agency serving Northern Indiana. Our roots go back to the 1930’s when we first established agencies in La Porte, later venturing into Michigan City in the 1940’s. Over the next 50 years, General Insurance Services continued to grow through acquisitions and mergers. In 1994 we opened our first Porter County office in Chesterton and by 1996 had moved to Valparaiso to better serve our Porter County clients. 2018 brought additional growth as we moved into our own downtown Valparaiso building and opened our first location in Hobart, helping us expand into Lake County.
From the very beginning, GIS has strived to provide our clients with truly outstanding service. The delivery of this service is made possible by our focus on developing and maintaining a values-based, high performance culture. The “Fundamentals” that follow define our unique culture. They’re what set us apart and drive our success. We call these fundamentals, The GIS Way.
We change concerns into confidence, we make losses whole again, and we help protect what matters most. That’s just our day job. Our passion for changing our community for the better moves us to do more. We are committed to actively supporting the communities we live and work in through strategic investment of our people and resources. We donate thousands of dollars every year to deserving organizations, and even more in time and talent.
