Creating a culture of safety

Hecht-Stout: Everything Insurance and More

We’re working hard to create a culture of safety in your business and personal endeavors in Central Illinois.

About Our Agency

Highly certified staff

From the time they walk in through their training and certification to becoming a member on-site or working towards an advanced degree, our staff is highly trained in the insurance field.

Wide range of products

Because we’re an independent insurance firm, we have access to a wide range of insurance products to meet the needs and preferences of every client.

Educational Approach

We educate our clients about different insurance concepts rather than force them to buy a financial product. This enables us to build long-lasting high-trust relationships with clients.

Tailored insurance plans

There is no one-size-fits-all option when it comes to insurance. We know that every person has unique needs and wants, which is why our team of experts can create tailored plans just for you!


At Hecht-Stout Insurance Agency, Dunlap, IL, the goal is to deliver quality service and professional care to all clients.

Hecht-Stout Insurance is one of central Illinois’ oldest independent, locally-owned insurance agencies, providing exceptional insurance services to individuals, families, and businesses since 1956.

Hecht-Stout Insurance Agency has the advantage of making our clients our top priority.

Large national brokers may offer a vast array of products, but you are a number, not a name. Small brokerage firms can provide personal services, but many need more depth of products and services to handle resilient problems. At Hecht-Stout Insurance, we will customize the best insurance package using the comprehensive range of companies and products along with unmatched service to meet your needs.

Hecht-Stout’s team of brokers comprises seasoned professionals who take a personal interest in meeting your needs. We are backed by the negotiating power and support services of an efficient system that has successfully served clients throughout central Illinois for over six decades.
