About Us

We are proud to be an active partner with the communities we serve!


Key Agency, Inc. is a four generation owned insurance agency, founded in 1952 by George Dignam. George was joined by his son, Tom, in 1962, when they built their first office on Manasota Key, at Beach Road. After ten great years on the beach, Key Agency needed a larger location and built their current office on McCall Road (SR776).


Key Agency is known regionally for being very community minded by supporting education, youth and adult sports, the arts, environmental causes and assisting our community’s most needy individuals. The management at Key Agency encourages their staff to be active in the community, and many are, whether it is serving on a committee, board, volunteering at charity events or assisting with fundraisers.


Each year, Key Agency and the Dignam family donate thousands of dollars to various not-for-profit groups, as well as giving thousands in educational scholarships to those who want to further their education at college, a trade school or vocational level. It is a true philosophy of giving that is practiced at Key Agency each day.


The staff at Key Agency is proud to be recognized as outstanding insurance professionals, whether for auto, home, life, business or health insurance. Key Agency stands ready to serve you with prompt and professional care, for all your insurance needs. With three area offices, and over 40 staff members, we are committed to protect what is valuable to you and your family.


We thank you for choosing Key Agency, Inc., since 1952.
