Introduction to SPF Insurance Services

What Sets SPFInsurance.com Apart

What makes SPFInsurance.com different from other insurance websites is that SPF Insurance Services is a DBA (doing business as) for SecurePath Financial, Inc., which is a Registered Investment Advisor Representative. This means that SPFInsurance.com is held to a fiduciary standard to do what is best for the client. You’ll find both the good and the bad about all the insurance companies and their plans, so you won’t have to go anywhere else to get the information you need.

Some people absorb new information by reading it and others prefer to see or watch videos with the information. At SPFInsurance.com we have provided both text and video content for you. Most of the key points we make in the textual content, will also have a video version that is available.

SPFInsurance.com works with all the major health insurance companies and has provided secure connectivity to each insurance companies’ online application portal. This provides clients with a wide selection of health insurance plans and helps to minimize the time it takes to process a health insurance application.

SPFInsurance.com provides consumers with detailed information about plan options and the ability to apply online. We provide a full spectrum of health, life, dental, disability, and Long-Term Care plans with a selection of price and benefit options. If any information is unclear or customers need additional assistance, a team of licensed Advisers is available via phone or email. The Advisers can answer any questions regarding the process of buying and using health insurance.

Tim Thompson, Founder

Tim Thompson’s Background

I founded SPF Insurance in 2006.

In 2001, I left the corporate world after 19 years. My health care transitioned to an 18-month, temporary COBRA coverage. Being a type 1 Diabetic, I was aware that as an individual, apart from a company-sponsored health plan, I was UN-insurable. In sorting through the complex insurance options to find a solution, I gained knowledge. I realized there must be other people going through the same frustrations. I knew I could use what I’d learned to help them. Thus began the seed of SPF Insurance Services.

Owning this company gives me the flexibility to do things the way I think they should be done. My motto for SPF Insurance is to help every caller regardless of whether we get paid or not. We educate and answer every question to the best of our knowledge. We take the time to ensure that our clients fully understand.

One of the common praises we hear from clients and non-clients is that we take the time with them. They tell us that this is what makes SPF different from other brokers they have contacted or worked with in their past.

We treat people with patience, and insight into how confusing the health care market can be. Clients and non-clients thank us for our hard work by referring friends and family to us. My business has grown for this simple principle.

As a licensed insurance broker and certified Covered California agent, I joined SPF Insurance in September 2015.

I was born in Italy and moved to the United States in 2001. I am now an American citizen.

Prior to joining the SPF Insurance team, I worked 10 years as a lighting specialist consultant. The years of building client trust and relationships were deeply gratifying.

Moving forward with the next phase of my life, I want to continue helping people, with a company that shares my philosophy for kindness in customer service.

My intention is to make it easy for each of you to find the right health care plan for your needs and situation. It is my pleasure to work with Tim Thompson at SPF Insurance.

Marc Sandknop, Benefits Advisor

Marc Sandknop’s Background

Over the years I have come to understand that many things, when first presented, are confusing and frustrating to deal with. Insurance is certainly no exception.

I clearly remember the first time an insurance representative “helped” me choose a group insurance plan that was offered by my employer. I had just spent the better part of my lunch hour waiting in line, and when my turn came I was given an avalanche of information with little or no explanation. I was asked to choose the plan that was best for me, and the choice was made even more urgent by the impatience of my co-workers waiting in line behind me. I left the table with no real understanding of the decision I had just made, and the entire process made me feel foolish and too discouraged to go back and get help with the questions I still had.

As a member of the SPF Insurance team, I am committed to making sure this will never happen to any of our clients.

I have been an educator for most of my life. I was an English TA and writing instructor in college, a USPTA tennis professional and coach for eight years, and an English teacher for almost two decades. No matter the subject or pursuit, I learned that the best education does not occur when people are told what to do or are just given facts; the best education and understanding occurs when you answer a person’s questions.

I will listen to you and give you the patience and respect that will ultimately help you make the decision that is best for you, your family, and your employees.
