Sterling Insurance Group is proud to unveil its all-new website!


As you may have noticed already, has had a makeover. Important information has been made more accessible, and the overall look is far more modern.


All client portals, payment pages and claims forms are still readily available for our clients – but now they’re housed in a sleeker, faster website! We’re proud of the changes we have made, and kept our clients in-mind as our first priority through the design process


In With The New

A new feature Sterling is excited to share is its library of interactive graphics. These interactive, informative images you’ll find throughout the site allows visitors to click-and-learn about their unique risks and coverage options.

What do you think of the new site? We’d love to hear your feedback on our changes. Click here to access the new and improved Sterling Insurance Group website. 


  • EVENT ANNOUNCEMENT: Please join Sterling Insurance Group as they partner with Warner, Norcross + Judd for an Executive Roundtable event on Aug. 22nd! Learn more about this event by clicking here (where you can also RSVP). About: Earlier this summer, the Trump administration made moves to reverse some Obama-era policies surrounding Association Health Plans. Association Health Plans allow small businesses to band together to buy insurance. Some plans have been in place for years, and those plans can continue to operate after the new rule takes effect. But the Trump administration’s regulation loosens the rules for additional plans to come onto the market, allowing more small businesses, including individuals who work for themselves, to join these plans. Don’t miss this important event!
  • Thank you to our interns! This summer, Sterling Insurance Group had 2 great Summer Interns participate in our Internship program. They worked hard and assisted teams across different departments. They will be missed! Read our thank-you post here.
  • Sterling Insurance Group was proud to be named the first-ever MAX Performing Agency by MarshBerry recently. “Partnership is a pretty wide-open way of talking about how a business engages with its clients. What does partnership really mean? At Sterling Insurance Group, it’s more than calling a customer to check in or delivering the services promised.” -Marshberry.
