The Hanford-Schuneman Agency - Prophetstown, IL


The Hanford-Schuneman Agency is independently owned and operated and has delivered insurance and risk management solutions for almost 70 years.  We’re committed to giving our clients the best products and services possible and to being active members of the communities we serve.  

Our programs are vast and diverse and include packages for numerous markets.  Home, auto, and life insurance are among our programs for personal lines, and farm, employee coverage, and general business coverage are some of our chief commercial lines.  The coverages available to our clients are flexible and vast due in part to the extensive partnerships we have with different insurance carriers, each of which is A-rated.  These coverages are critical to developing customized insurance plans that provide clients with the greatest value. 

Our agents – Bart, Meagan, and Mary – use their local knowledge and insurance know-how to give clients the best possible insurance solutions and to stay connected with local groups and organizations.  They also participate in events using their knowledge and know-how.  Connectedness and participation help our agency support communities we serve, and this support makes these communities better places to live and work. 

We work with the CGH Health Foundation, The Prophetstown Food Pantry, and the Whiteside County Farm Bureau, each of which helps improve the economic and social states of our service communities.  We attend events that raise money for research and charities, and the money raised also helps make the areas we serve better places.  Overall, our participation in our communities makes us better citizens and more complete insurers.
