Berry Insurance and Surround Insurance Announce Agency Appointment

Berry Insurance and Surround Insurance are pleased to announce a distribution partnership to sell insurance starter packs designed for Millennial and Gen Z consumers.

Berry Insurance has selected Surround Insurance to offer its innovative insurance product that fills the gap for consumers between college graduation and a first major purchase like a car or home. The Surround Insurance Starter Pack covers common risks faced by asset-lite consumers in their 20s and 30s. The first product includes coverage for driving rented or borrowed cars, biking, renting an apartment, and freelancing for 1099 income.
