About Whalen Insurance

Drawing of people around a table

Insurance is one of those purchases that should be made from someone you trust.

We strive to embrace that role and earn your confidence at Whalen Insurance.

A Family Business, Yours and Mine

My father, Joseph, founded Whalen Insurance in 1961. I joined him in 1982 and today serve as the agency’s President. Over the years, I’ve assembled a great team of insurance professionals. Together, we have a combined 200 years of experience helping people in Hampshire, Hampden, and Franklin counties . We’ve been located at 71 King Street in Downtown Northampton for over 30 years, and we plan to be here for many more.

Insurance is a critical purchase. Learning more about your individual needs and preferences enables us to recommend the coverage, and an insurance company, that is appropriate for the risks you face.

At Whalen Insurance, we specialize in homeowners, auto, business, group, craft beverage, and now distillery insurance.

Thanks for putting your faith in us. We’ll keep doing everything in our power to earn it.
