Providing direction you need

About Us

Gene Porter has over a decade of experience as a licensed life and health insurance agent, specializing in Medicare Health Insurance Plans. Julia Porter has been a licensed occupational therapist for over 20 years, and is a licensed life and health insurance agent as well. The duo joined forces to create The Porter Group Insurance, along with their quality licensed agents, with the goal of working to meet the individual needs of each client. We provide our clients the convenience of meeting in their home or meeting locally.

The Porter Group Insurance no-fee initial consultation can help you assess where you are, give you a second opinion on your current plan, if you have one, and chart a course to achieve your financial goals.

Our team works with you on an individual basis to help provide the direction you need. If you are tired of the insurance maze and don’t want to be sold policies you don’t need, The Porter Group is your solution. We look forward to working with you!

The Porter Group is licensed in Kentucky, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
