  • Home Insurance

    Drafting plans for your new home? Don't forget to swing by Paul Nelson Insurance Services to see Paul Nelson Insurance Services while you're out picking the perfect bathroom cabinets and looking over color swatches. It's never too early to start protecting your home, and we want to help you do just that with the help of Nationwide Insurance. After all, insurance is all about being proactive, so you might as well take the same approach when it comes to protecting what's likely one of your largest investments.

    You won't be doing yourself or your home any favors by settling for a basic protection. With basic insurance protection, you may not be getting the quality protection you need. For instance, where you live in Santa Cruz determines your premiums and the specifics of your plan, and your home's security measures are another determining factor. We'll go over your property and your plan with precision to make sure we've taken everything into account before we finalize your insurance. Once that plan is in place, we encourage you to keep us updated on any renovations or other changes you make to your home, as they may warrant a tweak to your protection.

    Don't wait until an unfortunate incident to learn that you may be underinsured. We'll see to it that you choose a plan to meet your needs and put your mind at ease. Visit our office at 730 Mission St. We'd also love to hear from you via telephone at (831) 426-9900.

  • Life Insurance

    If you have children, a spouse or anyone in your life who depends upon you financially, you need life insurance. The same holds true if you depend upon someone else financially. Life is unpredictable but it is within your power to minimize or even eliminate the financial impact of unexpected life events.

    We at Paul Nelson Insurance Services are here to help people like you in the Santa Cruz area. We are here to answer your questions and make life insurance understandable. We will explain term versus permanent insurance and we will outline the types of life insurance that may be best for you.

    When determining the amount of coverage you need, you should consider both your present and future circumstances. What are your current financial needs and what do you expect to be the future financial needs for your family?

    You should factor in your current age, income and debts and the likely financial impact of lost income. You should also consider final expenses as well as future educational needs for your children and even for yourself or your spouse. If you are a one-income household, you should be sure to purchase a policy that will cover that income in its entirety if lost.

    Life gets hectic; make sure you are not too busy to take care of yourself and your family. Call us now at (831) 426-9900 and ask for Paul Nelson Insurance Services. We are located at 730 Mission St,Santa Cruz,CA,95060 and you are welcome to stop in any time. Let us help you find the right policy to assure your family’s financial security.

  • Business Insurance

    In unpredictable economic circumstances, it can be good to have something you can depend on. Business owners know they can count on the exceptional protection and customer service provided by Nationwide. Nationwide Insurance: Paul Nelson Insurance Services has provided leading Nationwide business insurance solutions to entrepreneurs in Santa Cruz for many years. Our experience helping local business owners and Nationwide's experience developing comprehensive coverage solutions especially for commercial clients makes Nationwide Insurance: Paul Nelson Insurance Services the perfect choice as a policy provider. Let Paul Nelson Insurance Services and the rest of our team introduce you to better forms of coverage.

    Some business insurance policies are designed to fit all customers but may not account for industry, organization size, and other essential factors. Nationwide does things differently. We can customize a policy to suit the needs of your organization so that you have the most meaningful forms of coverage. This is a great way to protect your current assets and your future operations.

    Thinking proactively about your company's changing insurance needs is very important. In fact, many business owners may be unaware that their insurance policy needs changing or updating at any point. You might be paying for coverage that is no longer relevant or continuing to renew a policy that is not providing the protection your company actually requires. Paul Nelson Insurance Services can help address these problems. Call our 730 Mission St office at (831) 426-9900.

    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.
