About Fortridge Insurance

Fortridge Insurance is an independent insurance agency representing more than 30 insurance companies. We have the ability to compare prices and benefits among these insurers to offer our clients the best coverage for them. .

The name “Fortridge” comes from a combination of the words “fortress” and “bridge.” Fortress was chosen because it portrays strength and protection. Bridge was chosen because it provides a picture of getting safely to the other side of the unexpected hardships that happen in life. We never know what the future will bring, so we all need appropriate plans to be prepared for the “unexpected.” The right insurance package helps make that possible.

Based in the West Valley of Phoenix, Fortridge Insurance has clients in Arizona and several other states. With more than twelve years of experience in health and life insurance, we have a great feel for the insurance landscape. We design plans with a focus on low costs, and tax-efficiency, which we combine with personalized insurance advice aimed at helping clients make better-informed decisions.
