This is the second year that I have worked with Sandy for my health insurance. She has gone above and beyond in helping us choose coverage and navigate the Health Insurance Marketplace. She is amazing!

As a long-time commercial and personal customer of Harding & Jacob, I appreciate the high level of service they have provided over the years and continue to provide. We have an outstanding relationship with Harding & Jacob, and I wouldn’t trust any other agency to deliver the same level of hard work and attention to detail.

Hoyt Murray and the H.C. .Murray Group have been providing all my business, life, property and casualty, and health insurance for over 30 years.

There are several forms of business insurance you should carry to protect your investment; we have outlined them below. To determine which policies are best for your Ohio business, consult with one of our Cleveland or Columbus insurance advisors at 440.871.7261.

The advantage of being an independent insurance agency is that we can shop your auto insurance needs with multiple, top-notch companies, saving you time and money.

Home Insurance


Your home may well be your most valuable asset, and unfortunately, disaster can strike at any time. No one is immune to the hazards that can damage or destroy a home. Having adequate homeowner’s insurance not only protects you and your home from these hazards, it also allows you to smoothly proceed with your life when a claim occurs.

For years, we have helped homeowners, condo owners, renters, and landlords throughout the Cleveland and Columbus metropolitan areas find the best coverage for their insurance needs. We also provide on-going claims support in the event of a claim and tips on how to protect your property throughout the year (which can be very helpful for Ohio residents!)

Life Insurance


Life insurance can benefit anyone, regardless of age, marital status, and family status. Not only does it ensure your family and loved ones are financially safe in the event of a tragedy, it also provides major advantages for financial planning.

At H.C. Murray Group, we have extensive experience in obtaining quality life insurance coverage for customers who thought they were “uninsurable” – from individuals with health issues, to non-smokers that enjoy an occasional cigarette or cigar. Don’t assume you won’t be approved for life insurance coverage without consulting one of our advisors first.

Below, we have outlined a few of the major advantages of having life insurance. Call us at 440.871.7261 to learn more about how life insurance can best serve your needs.

Long-Term Care Insurance


Financial experts agree that without long-term care insurance, your retirement plan is incomplete. Almost half of all 65-year-olds will use a nursing home at some point in their remaining lives, the average cost of which is now $80,000 a year. Long-term care insurance provides confidence in knowing that such costs will be covered without having to deplete your savings.

Those who are in good health should start the process of shopping for and obtaining long-term care insurance as soon as possible. Unlike auto insurance, high-risk individuals do not have options at higher price tags when it comes to long-term care insurance. In fact, some pre-existing conditions will disqualify you from obtaining coverage entirely.

Health Insurance


A knowledgeable agent is able to bring a great deal of value to the table when it comes to individual health insurance.

At H.C. Murray Group, we not only have access to a wide variety of plans to choose from, we also make understanding our customers’ unique, individual circumstances a priority. With this understanding, we can refer you to the health insurance policy that best fits your needs.

Your health insurance premium is only a small part of the big picture when it comes to evaluating your policy. There are plenty of other factors you should consider, such as how likely you are going to be satisfied with your care options in the event of a claim, what your known medical needs are, and what your expected medical needs are.

Medicare is an essential part of health care for millions of Americans. As Medicare evolves and changes are made to the program, it becomes more confusing.

Disability Insurance


Disability insurance is a very important and often overlooked type of insurance coverage. No one ever expects to become disabled, but it happens more often than you would expect, and if you do not have disability insurance in place, you could be left financially devastated.

Millions of Americans live paycheck and paycheck and are unable to pay living expenses if an accident or illness leaves them unable to work. Disability insurance offers financial protection from the above situation, and considering that most premiums only amount to 3% or less of an individual’s income, disability insurance is a valuable investment.
