The Marcus Agency is a national life and health insurance brokerage general agency located in Sudbury, Massachusetts, twenty miles west of downtown Boston. Founded in 1960 by Arnold Marcus, the agency is now directed by Arnold’s son Eric. Eric joined the agency in 1979 and became President and CEO in 1988. Under Eric’s direction, the agency has experienced unprecedented growth through increased sales production, the acquisition of two existing brokerage agencies and the opening of a satellite office in Pennsylvania.

Serving insurance agents, brokers, property and casualty agencies, financial planners and accountants, The Marcus Agency has access to life insurance carriers, product and underwriting as well as providing advanced sales support to our customers with the goal of providing the best service in the industry.

We are experts in Impaired Risk Underwriting. Our highly experienced in-house underwriters led by a Registered Nurse offer onsite clinical underwriting, a service unique to our agency. We also conduct Impaired Risk seminars to help empower our agents to succeed in this difficult but lucrative market.

In addition to the Impaired Risk specialty, the agency has a totally dedicated Long-Term Care department. Over the years, our LTC insurance professionals have helped our customers become expert in the long-term care marketplace by offering intensive training seminars, one-on-one product training and on-site sales assistance.

The Marcus Agency’s product lines include universal and whole life insurance, survivorship life, term insurance, fixed annuities, long-term care insurance and several specialized products. We are competitive in product and underwriting with all other national brokerage agencies, but are second to none in service.

Through premium growth, acquisitions and mergers, the agency offers over one hundred years of life brokerage experience. The Marcus Agency has become a major player in the insurance industry while preserving the personalized service developed over the last fifty years. To quote Eric Marcus, “Our primary focus is to help our customers develop and grow their business and compete successfully in today’s marketplace. We continue to investigate new opportunities in order to provide the best possible products, underwriting and service.”
