Our Ames, IA office, Knapp Tedesco Insurance, has served clients with a wide variety of needs since 1926. Guided by our values – Integrity, Exceptional Service, Trusted Advisor, Customer Focus, and Community – we use a client-centric team approach to help our clients navigate insurance complexities.

As an independent, multi-line agency, we work with individuals, families, and businesses.

Personal Insurance

Whether you own or rent, we have insurance to protect you and your assets. We also insure recreational vehicles (boats, RVs, motorcycles, ATVs, airplanes) and other personal belongings.

Our advisors can also help you with Life Insurance, Long Term Care, and Medicare Supplement Insurance. We take the time to understand your needs, provide you with options, and guide you through the process so that you can confidently get the protection you need at a price you can afford.

Commercial Insurance

As a business owner, you take calculated risks every day, but what about the risks you haven’t considered? Our team works with you to identify the business policies that offer you important protection.  General liability, commercial property and auto, workers’ compensation, and bonding are among the insurance plans we offer.

Employee Benefits

To attract and retain top talent for your business, it’s essential to consider your employee benefits program. We work with employers to design an employee benefits program that offers employees a variety of benefits to choose from while reducing plan administration and keeping benefit costs within budget. From group health and dental to life and disability, we’ll tailor an employee benefits package to your company’s unique needs.

As a diverse team with differing educational interests, experiences, and strategies, we take pride in serving our clients as trusted insurance advisors.
