Personal Insurance at Otterstedt’s GJEM Division

Just as every person is unique, every person also has unique insurance needs. Some things may be the same across the board, but finding the right policy to meet your specific insurance needs, your situation in life (and as they change over time), and your financial means, can be challenging without the help of highly qualified professionals like those at the GJEM Division. Keep that in mind as you explore your needs for the following types of personal insurance coverage.

Home Insurance

Our home insurance offerings aren’t limited to traditional homeowners. We also offer coverage to people who own condos, co-ops, townhouses, and vacation homes as well as renters. We believe that no matter what kind of home you own or live in, you have the right to proper insurance protection for your home itself as well as the possessions your home holds.

Health Insurance

Your health coverage is perhaps the most personal of all insurances available to you. We recognize that at the GJEM Division and operate with the utmost discretion when dealing with your health insurance coverage and claims. Our health insurance line of products includes: disability, employee benefits, group health, and long-term care insurance.

Life Insurance

For some people, this is the most difficult of all insurance products to think about. It’s not easy to consider what would happen to the people you love and care for if you’re no longer here to care for them. It’s also one of the most necessary for families, especially if you have people who depend on your income for support whether you’re caring for aging parents, children of your own, have a dependent spouse, or even in households that require two incomes to make ends meet.

Commercial Insurance Products from Otterstedt’s GJEM Division

Just as the insurance needs of all families and individuals are different so are the needs of all Teaneck businesses. The following are fairly standard among many local Teaneck businesses.
