Ka-Nol Insurance Services is a family owned and operated full-service insurance agency in Myrtle Beach.
They were formed in 1984 to provide insurance services to individuals and businesses throughout the Grand Strand and the Pee Dee areas.
They offer full benefit plans—including group health insurance— to businesses, and represent the top insurance carriers that are available in South Carolina.
Their president and director of operations, Corbett Shoemaker, has specialized in the field of employee benefits and group insurance since 1970. Corbett and his late wife, Brenda, started in the insurance business in Johnson City, Tennessee, but vacationed often in Myrtle Beach with their two daughters. Their love for the beach made their decision to move here in 1984 an easy one, and the family has called the Myrtle Beach area home since that time.
Their youngest daughter, Stephanie Haynes, started working with them in 1993, and is now the vice president and office manager. She is involved in the day-to-day activities of the office and works very closely with servicing clients.
Stephanie’s husband, Chris Haynes, is from Sheffield, England, and has been working with the company since 2014. He manages Ka-Nol’s life insurance and Medicare departments, as well as handling all of their social media accounts and the website. He is also involved in the day-to-day activities of the office.
Ka-Nol is passionate about the service they provide their clients.
“We are very hands-on,” says Corbett, “as in we will resolve a problem ourselves instead of asking a client to resolve it by calling the insurance carrier.”
The Ka-Nol family team has personally created the Coastal Chamber Plan, which offers dental, vision, life, and short term disability insurance to groups with as few as two employees, with great benefits and very low rates.
For seniors aged sixty-five and over, Ka-Nol can help navigate Medicare. They can help you decide if a Supplement or an Advantage plan is right for you. They can also help those sixty-four and younger determine if a Health Insurance Marketplace plan would work for them.
