About us

Martin-Darley Independent Brokers is an employee benefits and insurance consulting firm that provides objective advice and innovative solutions to discerning clients. With more than 40 years of experience in the employee benefits arena, we provide a unique perspective for both the group and individual insurance markets.

We provide professional consulting services for life, health, disability, long term care, owner/executive benefits and estate planning issues. The firm has a strong reputation for developing and delivering well-devised employee communication and enhancing the value of these important programs for employers and their teams.

Your employee benefits and insurance planning advisor needs to be agile with the expertise to respond to the changing conditions you face as an employer.  The best planning should always be situation specific, while still anticipating long term needs.

Our goal is to help your financial services team make strategic, educated decisions and drive clear, measurable improvements in your business. We believe this leads to successful, long-term client partnerships which is reflected in our client retention rate of 95 percent.

Our Approach

Our Approach: Objective Advice, Innovative Solutions is more than just a slogan. Partnering with Martin-Darley means that your primary relationship will be with an owner of the firm, allowing you to directly benefit from more than 50+ years of training, certifications and experience in the insurance industry.

You can rest easy, knowing you’re working with proven experts. Our background and extensive professional training includes detailed underwriting, loss ratio analysis, contract expertise, personalized needs assessments and well developed executive level relationships with insurance carriers.

You can focus on your business, while we do the legwork. Our dedicated commitment is to provide an efficient, personalized, customer centered approach. We do the research, analysis, negotiations and final solution preparation appropriate to your specific needs, so you have the confidence and peace of mind to remain focused on your business.  Long term satisfied clients are our best evidence.

    You can stay on top of your changing benefit needs with our ongoing, personalized service. We believe that ongoing collaboration with the owners of our firm differentiates Martin-Darley from large brokerage houses. In bigger firms clients  are almost always assigned to “account managers” after inital sales encounters.We are firmly committed to a continued hands on approach to the ever evolving needs of clients. Seldom do a client’s needs remain stagnant year in and year out. Your consultant should provide continued face to face involvement, keeping you informed and updated of regulatory and carrier specific changes.

  • Are you satisfied with your current broker? We receive many referrals from satisfied clients. Their confidence in our ability to provide current, innovative, technically correct solutions that reflect sensitivity to cost and customer satisfaction is very rewarding. Please contact us at www.martindarley.com/contact-us/  if you feel uncertain about your current employee or executive benefit package. We will treat your needs with confidentiality, candid feedback and thoughtful solutions.

Our Philosophy

We serve our clients as experienced insurance professionals, maintaining a broad base of current knowledge in product lines that are relevant to each of  their particular needs.  Our firm efficiently interacts with various industry and product experts to develop innovative yet practical solutions to our clients’ needs.

We know that your budgets have constraints, and we also know that you understand the value of a comprehensive solution.  Through our analysis we will identify comprehensive solutions that are flexible, and generate results you will appreciate when the need arises.
