Founded in October 1990 as D.A. Wheeler and Associates, our agency has evolved over two and a half decades into what is now First Community Insurance and Annuity Center. Our staff is comprised of individuals from the immediate Kankakee Country area, who own experience in banking, farming, and small business protection.

FCIA focuses on relationship building. We love our clients! As an agency, we believe by providing world-class service with access to exceptional carriers and products we can transcend insurance industry norms, where complacency and self-preservation is a typical way of conducting business. Our team approach makes us unique, as many different eyes and experiences contribute to creating an insurance or retirement plan. Having insurance, retirement, and financial programs under one roof allows us to work holistically in protecting your assets. Our phone lines are open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. All staff members are fully licensed insurance professionals, with more than 100 combined years of experience in business and insurance solutions.
