History of Cogdell Insurance Agency

     Mr. Cogdell entered the Life and Health Insurance business in December, 1963, after successfully completing an insurance course at The University of Tennessee Extension School in Memphis.  At that time, state law required a person to be of the minimum age of 21 to obtain an insurance license.  Mr. Cogdell petitioned the Courts and on December 10, 1963, the Honorable Judge Andrew Tip Taylor granted his request to remove his minority age and be declared an adult at age 18 so he could get his insurance license.  From 1963 to 1985, he was employed by National American and Life of Georgia Insurance Company.

     In July of 1985 he started his own agency, Cogdell Insurance Agency.  Having dedicated himself to providing the best service possible to his clients, the agency has grown every year to become one of the area's largest life-health agencies.

     The Cogdell Insurance Agency provides Medicare supplements, Group Hospital, Life and Dental, Individual, Family, or Children only Health Insurance Plans that include a wide choice of co-pay plans, Life Insurance Annuities, and Short-term Main Medical Insurance.

     The Agency only represents proven, established insurance companies.  Their motto is "Service is Our Policy".  For more information on any of the services offered by Cogdell Insurance Agency, please contact Mr. Cogdell at 731-968-4300 or
