  • 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 First West Inc. are here to help people like you in the Bozeman 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 (406) 587-5111 and ask for Aaron I Odegard. We are located at 1905 Stadium Dr,Bozeman,MT,59715 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

    When you are a business owner, stability is likely one of your top priorities. We at Nationwide Insurance: First West Inc. understand this, which is why we teamed up with Nationwide, a company with an excellent history of insuring businesses. We want to make sure that your business has the basic coverage it needs as well as any additional coverage to fit the nuances of your situation. No business is exactly alike, and you'll want to consider factors such as your business location, how the business is run, and your target customers or clients when you assess insurance options.

    If you are unsure how or where to start, Aaron I Odegard and our other agents may recommend that you select a businessowners policy (BOP). It combines property insurance, liability insurance, and other types of insurance coverage. After that, you can look at other insurance coverage options such as business interruption insurance, which can help keep your business going financially in situations such as vandalism or extreme weather. Other coverage types that may interest you include utility interruption, employment practices, and accounts receivable. We also have insurance solutions customized toward specific business types in Bozeman such as dry cleaners, real estate, and plumbing.

    Take advantage of an On Your Side® Review to determine the insurance coverage needs of your business. We will assess your business and give you information on what you may want to cover. Give us a call today at (406) 587-5111 or stop by our Nationwide Insurance: First West Inc. office on 1905 Stadium Dr.
