Ohio Plan Agents
The Ohio Plan was formed in 1988 and five agencies have been a part of the Ohio Plan's success since it first began. These five founding agents are:
Established in 1948 by Vincent S. Beck, our company has grown to a full service insurance agency. V.S. Beck Insurance Agency serves the insurance needs of many individuals, families, businesses and governmental entities throughout Northwest Ohio.
Kinder's Insurance Agency, Ltd. was founded in 1970 by Bernard Kinder. In 1986, Mr. Kinder established the first insurance pool in Ohio for county governments. The agency has since specialized in insuring public entities which include counties, cities, villages, townships, water and sewer districts, as well as fire and EMS districts for all lines of coverage.
The people at Love Insurance Agency have over 100 years of expertise in handling public insurance and risk management for cities, townships, villages, schools, counties, fire departments and special districts. Operating as an independent insurance agency, Love Insurance Agency has been growing since 1950, evolving to meet the increasingly complex and demanding needs of its clients.

As an independent insurance agency, we represent a number of well-known, financially sound companies that expect their representatives to meet the highest professional standards.
At Whitaker-Myers, we're big enough to understand our clients and to have access to essential markets, but we're small enough to maintain that local, independent agent feeling. Closely held, nearly 150 years old, 32 associates strong and specializing in commercial property/casualty, personal home/auto/life insurance, executive protection and employee benefit plans, we're the Whitaker-Myers Group, since 1869 – with offices in Wooster and Ashland.
Over the years, the Ohio Plan has appointed the following additional agencies throughout the state of Ohio:
