About PSA Insurance Services

About PSA Insurance Services

PSA is a second and third-generation, family-owned and family-operated independent insurance brokerage.  PSA was established in 1979 when our late Founder, Darrell Myers, decided to go into business representing his clients for their insurance needs. Since 1979, PSA has grown to include a professional staff of 14 insurance brokers and an office staff of 6 highly trained assistants. At present, PSA serves the insurance needs of thousands of individuals and businesses throughout the states of California, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Texas, and Utah.

We are an independent insurance broker. We do not work for an insurance company; we work for you.  An independent insurance broker is a professional who acts as a intermediary between insurance companies and clients. We work with a variety of insurance companies and can offer clients a range of insurance options to choose from. We are not tied to any specific insurance company, which allows us to provide unbiased advice and help clients find the best coverage at the most competitive price.

What is a CPCU® ?

Just as a CPA is your professional tax partner, so too is a CPCU® your professional insurance partner. The CPCU® designation is awarded by The Institutes, and it stands for Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter. It is recognized as the premier professional designation of the property and casualty insurance industry.

To earn the credential, insurance agents must have at least two years of insurance industry experience and then be able to pass national examinations covering such diverse subjects as insurance law, ethics, accounting, insurance carrier operations, and business management. Once awarded, the designee must abide by an enforceable code of professional ethics. These demanding standards ensure that when you choose a CPCU® for your insurance needs, you are choosing someone who not only has your best interest in mind, but someone who has the background and knowledge to prove it.

What is a CRIS® ?

Several of our agents have been certified as a Construction Risk and Insurance Specialist (CRIS®). This insurance designation recognizes specialized expertise in construction insurance, and establishes one’s commitment to the construction industry through an on-going continuing education component focusing on construction risk and insurance.
