  • Auto Insurance

    Understanding the language of insurance policies can be difficult, which is why Abe Terefe focuses on being your guide to coverage whenever you ask for a quote on a new auto insurance policy. Whether you are looking to keep coverage on an older vehicle or you want to make sure your new purchase is fully protected, there are a variety of coverage options offered by Abe GT & Associates Inc. to fit any driver's needs in Chicago.

    Liability coverage is the first and most basic kind required by most states, but your optimum level of coverage and your state's minimum requirements might be quite different. It all depends on your individual needs starting with the vehicle you drive. Agents at Abe GT & Associates Inc. understand this, and part of the process of finding the right policy for each driver is finding the right combination of features. That means not only taking care of basic liability but also assessing your needs for collision insurance protection and comprehensive coverage to provide drivers with peace of mind even when the vehicle is parked.

    To ask questions about coverage or to talk to Abe Terefe about other discounts you might qualify for, give our offices a call at (773) 434-6733. We are also able to make appointments for face to face consultations at our office located at 7823 S Western Ave. Whether you want to know more about prices and coverage levels or you're ready to move forward with a purchase, our agency is ready to help with your auto insurance questions.

  • Homeowners Insurance

    Modern home insurance coverage is not one-size-fits-all, but is instead based on the unique aspects of your home and living in Chicago. Some physical components to consider when covering your home are detached additions, like pools and sheds.

    Another aspect of home insurance is covering the belongings on the inside, the ones that are most valuable or the most important to you. For expensive works of art, antiques or jewelry, there is our Valuables Plus® coverage. If the unforeseen does happen, you can be covered with our Brand New Belongings® program which aids in the repair or replacement of your covered belongings. Whether you're covering priceless memories or expensive boutique items, Abe Terefe and all our other local agents want to make sure you get the best coverage possible.

    The sheer number of coverage options and discounts can seem overwhelming, but not when you have Abe GT & Associates Inc. to explain every step along the way. We're located at 7823 S Western Ave, but you can also call us at (773) 434-6733 to schedule an appointment or just ask questions.

  • Life Insurance

    At Abe GT & Associates Inc., we want to make customers aware of how easy and affordable life insurance is. We know many people in Chicago think they cannot afford to have a good policy that protects their financial interests. That is why we work with Nationwide to provide customers with the diverse coverage options they need to sleep peacefully at night.

    Affordability is a major concern for most. In addition to choosing coverage based on what you can afford, you need to think about how you or your loved ones may need to use your policy proceeds. Maybe you’ll need to replace lost income or pay for long-term care expenses and your kids’ college education. These issues may not completely encompass your current concerns. However, keeping them in mind will help you discern the proper coverage level for your situation.

    There are circumstances where customers find it more beneficial for them to layer several term life insurance policies instead of purchasing whole life insurance to give them long-term financial security.

    By speaking with a life insurance agent who works with Nationwide, you can gain a better understanding of options that are ideal for your situation. The amount of coverage you need can help you meet your current and future financial goals.

    To better understand coverage options, we encourage you to contact Abe Terefe at (773) 434-6733 to arrange a time to meet in office at 7823 S Western Ave,Chicago,IL,60620 to discuss your needs. For additional convenience, our agents are ready to help you go over coverage options over the phone.

  • Business Insurance

    As a small business owner, you may have already purchased property insurance and general liability insurance, but did you know you could be protecting your assets even further? Nationwide, in conjunction with Abe GT & Associates Inc., provides a wide variety of specialized business insurance policies to benefit many types of businesses.

    Are you wondering what more you could need? Many business owners choose to add an umbrella policy to their coverage. Sometimes something occurs that the main policy cannot cover in full. If this happens, umbrella insurance acts as additional protection for a liability claim. Others opt to add income loss coverage and use it to pay bills and employees if they ever experience a business interruption. Depending on the type of business you run, you may be required to carry workers' compensation insurance in case an employee becomes injured on the job. Equipment breakdown policies, crime insurance policies, and cyber liability policies are all popular as well. If you are feeling overwhelmed by all the options, don't worry. Our experienced agent, Abe Terefe, can help you determine which policies would work well for your company. Together, we will come up with a package that protects you at a budget you can afford.

    If you run a small business in Chicago, Nationwide and Abe GT & Associates Inc. are ready and willing to help you. To learn more about which small business policies are right for you, call us at (773) 434-6733 or stop into our offices at 7823 S Western Ave.

    Nationwide offers small business resources to help you strengthen your business, such as financial calculators and information and articles on marketing and cash flow management. Learn more at the Business Solutions Center.
