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.
In all, agents cannot solidify a true wealth conservation plan if consideration is not placed in the physical losses of the client’s farm, business, household, or estate. A tornado or fire can be just as devastating as a disability or drop in market value.
FCIA is licensed for all property and casualty, including business insurance and farm insurance in Illinois and Indiana. Our owner, Doug Wheeler, is licensed for all life, disability, health, and wealth conservation products in Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Alabama. Among our client base, we boast professional athletes, musicians, radio and TV personalities, as well as many local farmers, well-known community leaders, and small business owners
