Founders Federal Credit Union has added a new division offering insurance services to its members.

The new division - officially named Founders Insurance Services - brings three new employees to the credit union - Scott Blackmon, Michael Faile and Mark Blackmon.

"We are truly excited to have this opportunity to better serve all of our members' financial needs," said Bruce Brumfield, president and CEO of Founders Federal Credit Union.

"Our ability to provide affordable insurance products through major carriers will allow our members to have the best protection at the lowest price, giving them peace of mind."

Founders Insurance Services offers life, accidental death and health insurance through KMG America and many quality carriers, such as Blue Cross and Blue Shield of South Carolina and Mutual of Omaha.

"We are fortunate to be able to continue and build upon our longstanding relationship with KMG America," Brumfield said. "KMG America is one of the many insurance carriers through which we offer products, and they will continue to serve those individuals they have served for many years."

Founders members can set up a free appointment with the insurance services team to assess their insurance needs and select the coverage that best fits their individual needs.
