ABA Insurance Services: the only bank-owned and banker-directed program offering P&C, D&O and bond for banks.

When we asked our customers and agents how we could better service community banks, we received an overwhelming request for Property & Casualty Insurance.

Designed to meet the needs of community banks, our P&C program includes property, general liability, business auto, workers compensation and umbrella. A separate Mortgage Protection program has been developed to provide broad Mortgage E&O and Impairment coverage, and an easy resource for managing force placed and foreclosed properties is also available.
