Forrest T. Jones & Company

The AFA Member Insurance Program is administered by Forrest T. Jones & Company (FTJ), a nationally licensed insurance broker and third-party administrator with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri.

FTJ has specialized in administering association benefits since its founding in 1953. Today it serves as broker / administrator to more than 80 national associations with more than 1 million combined members.

Many of FTJ’s association relationships exceed 30, 40, and even 50 years. This is the result of the company’s commitment to providing best-in-class service, leveraging the latest technology, and finding the best insurance solutions for members.

FTJ serves more than 300,000 insureds, accounting for more than $100 million in annual premium across an array of insurance products, including term life insurance, accidental death & dismemberment, dental and vision plans, short-term and long-term disability, hospital indemnity and medical gap plans, and many others.

FTJ works closely with more than two dozen insurance companies, including industry leaders such as AFLAC, Berkley Select, CNA Insurance, Great American Insurance Company, Hartford Life and Accident Company, MetLife, Mutual of Omaha, Prudential Life Insurance Company, New York Life Insurance Company, and The Travelers Companies.

The company, which employs more than 300 insurance professionals, is family owned and run. In 2016, ownership passed to the third generation of Jones family members — brothers Richard Jr., Bradford, and Bryson Jones, grandsons of the founder.
