About Us

Founded in 1982, Peoples Insurance Agency is a family owned and operated Independent Insurance Agency providing insurance solutions in 44 states. The board of directors consists of Joe & Kathy Whitinger, along with their three sons Jason, Jarvis, and Joshua.

Headquartered in Waverly, IA, Peoples Insurance Agency consists of over 40 motivated employees specially trained in insurance and risk management. As a company, we strive to stay on top of market trends, being involved in an ever-changing industry.

Peoples Insurance Agency's vision is to continue to grow as a competitive insurance provider. This is accomplished by staying one step ahead of our competition and making every effort to secure strong business relationships with all of our clients.


Peoples Insurance Agency has a wide range of insurance products to offer. Different from most agencies, where you will deal with one agent for all your insurance needs, we have specialists dedicated to each line of insurance. This enables us to provide the best possible service and product knowledge to our clients. We like to think our agency is driven by the service we provide our clients. Our agency, as a whole, has one belief and that is, "Peoples Insurance Agency's future depends on how well we take care of each of our customers." 

We are fortunate enough to be able to provide several lines of insurance and, no matter the line of insurance, we strive for excellence in all that we do. Please take a moment to look over the services we offer and feel free to contact us with any questions.
