Your good neighbor

CALUMET – Whether you need to choose an insurance policy, take out a loan, or start to plan for your retirement, it’s important to find the insurance products and financial services that fit your lifestyle. Dean Kangas, State Farm Insurance agent, and his team are ready to provide you with the insurance products and financial services that will help protect you and your family’s future.

Kangas, a Copper Country native, said he decided to become a State Farm agent because of the company’s reputation and wide variety of products.

“I had always thought about the insurance industry as a career, but I had a huge interest in the financial services field as well. With State Farm, you get the best of both worlds,” Kangas said. “State Farm prides themselves on customer service rated tops by JD Powers, being ranked number 43 in the Fortune 500 companies, offering over 100 products, and being financially stable. It was an easy choice.”

Kangas’ team is fully licensed in all of State Farm’s insurance products and financial services, and experienced in servicing of the insurance products and financial services State Farm offers. No matter who’s in the office, you’re sure to get the advice, service and coverage you need.

“My job as a local State Farm Agent is to be fully committed to serving Calumet and the surrounding areas. We do this by helping people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams,” Kangas said.

The Dean Kangas State Farm office in Calumet offers insurance products to protect your auto, home, life and health. They also offer a variety of financial services including checking and savings accounts, certificates of deposit, credit cards, vehicle loans and mutual funds for both personal and business needs.

“State Farm’s vision is to be your first and best choice for insurance and financial services, Kangas said. “We are your one-stop shop for insurance products, financial products, bank products – we have it all.”

Even though State Farm may be well-known for their insurance products, Kangas said their financial services offer the customer several benefits as well. For example, State Farm’s Mutual Funds are distributed exclusively through a network of over 10,500 registered State Farm agents in 48 states (excludes MA and RI). State Farm Bank is ranked among the top 1 percent of U.S. banks based on asset size. Kangas said working with customers to save for retirement or maximizing retirement income is also a passion of his.

“A lot of people say, ‘well, I can’t afford it right now’, but really what you can’t afford is not saving for retirement,” Kangas said. “I tell every customer there’s no such thing as being too young to get a retirement account set up. Even if it’s a small account, get something set up today.”

No matter what product the customer is searching for, Kangas says his team’s first priority is providing top-quality customer service. When a customer comes into the office, Kangas said his team takes the time to talk to their clients and learn what’s most important to them so that together, they can choose the products or financial services that best fits their needs.

“It all comes back to customer service. I stress that in the office,” Kangas said. “I like to get to know everyone on a personal level to see what is important to them and help them realize their dreams and retire comfortably.”

Kangas’ State Farm office is located at 200 5th Street in Calumet. For more information about the wide variety of insurance and financial products/services State Farm has to offer, stop by the office, call 337-1704, or visit their website at sfkangas.com.
