Who We Are

Southern Indiana Independent Insurance Agency Offering Auto, Home, Business, Health, Farm, Boat, RV, and Life Insurance Since 1929.

Gettelfinger Insurance was founded in 1929 by Henry Gettelfinger in the small town of Bradford, Indiana. Henry, a farmer by trade, was in the field behind his horse and plow when an insurance representative asked him if he would be interested in selling insurance to the local farmers in the areas. In 1956 Henry asked one of his sons, Howard Gettelfinger, if he would join him and help out with the insurance business. Upon Henry’s death in 1968, Howard moved the business to New Albany, Indiana until 1981 when he moved it to its current location in Jeffersonville, Indiana. In 1987 Howard’s son, Dean Gettelfinger, joined the business and worked along side Howard until his retirement in 1999.
