Negron; and state Sen. James J. Maroney, D-Milford.
The Christopher Carucci Agency LLC, a State Farm affiliate, signed a long-term lease last fall to open the 1,800-square-foot insurance office at a former dental practice in West Shore’s Baybrook Shopping Center, just across the street from Oyster River Beach.
Like Carucci’s Milford office, the West Haven office is open from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. weekdays and offers a full range of insurance options, including policies for auto, home and property, life, health, disability, small business, liability, and identity restoration. It also provides financial services, such as banking and investment options.
Founded in 1922, State Farm is the largest property and casualty insurance provider in the U.S. It is also America’s largest auto insurance provider.
The mutual company, headquartered in Bloomington, Ill., has 70,000 employees and 19,000 independent contractor agents who service 80 million policies and accounts nationwide.
