OSWEGO, NY– (November, 2016) – FitzGibbons Agency, an Oswego-based independent insurance agency and its partner agency, the Huntington Agency of Baldwinsville, are now designated as Certified WorkComp Advisors (CWCA) by the The Institute of WorkComp Professionals (IWCP), announced John FitzGibbons, agency President. The 60-year-old Huntington Agency was integrated into the FitzGibbons family of insurance agencies in 2015.

Today, there are more than 800 certified members of the community across the country and FitzGibbons Agency and the Huntington Agency are proud to be counted among this elite membership.
“Workers’ Compensation is complicated and confusing and, according to the Institute, at least 50 percent of businesses are overcharged for their Workers’ Comp insurance, costing employers thousands of dollars each year,” FitzGibbons explained. “As CWCAs, our agency knows how to find those overcharges in Workers’ Comp accounts and audits, often resulting in immediate cost-savings for employers.”
CWCAs are committed to on-going workers’ compensation education and The Institute sponsors a variety of Workers’ Comp educational opportunities for Advisors, keeping Advisors up-to-date on rule changes and new tools for enhancing the results they achieve for employers.
As a designated CWCA, agents possess the critical knowledge of practical, proven processes that reduce Workers’ Comp expenses over the long-term, making employers more competitive.
“We have the distinct ability to design an injury management program that fits a company’s culture and budget,” FitzGibbons added. “And knowing they are insured with an agency that is a Certified WorkComp Advisor provides employers with peace of mind. They can be secure in the knowledge that our agents will continue to serve them as advisors and have their best interest in mind.”
