So much has changed since the early days at V.F. McNeil Insurance. However, one thing that’s remained the same, is the Branford, Connecticut insurance agency’s commitment to continuous improvement.


Due to its commitment, and the effects of the Covid-19 Pandemic, 2021 is going a bit differently for V.F. McNeil’s 135th year in business. The local insurance agency’s calendar of commemorative activities has solely focused on improving the client and staff experience.

Voted in 2020 as the #1 choice for insurance on the Connecticut Shoreline, the team at V.F. McNeil has marked this pretty magnificent achievement with a major investment in upgrading its technology to better serve its staff and clients. This upgrade will also include a customer portal and upgraded mobile app for both staff and clients, and will provide anywhere, anytime account access.

The agency has also implemented video quote proposals, video insurance reviews, and video appointments for any future instances when in-person service is not possible or preferred.

Last, but not least, the agency applied to the United States Patent and Trademark office, and was approved for a registered trademark to identify the phrase, The right insurance from day one® as its official tagline. The phrase was inspired by a common theme of client feedback collected for over fourteen years and communicates how seriously the agency takes serving the insurance protection needs of its clients. 

V.F. McNeil is strongly committed to providing its clients, its community, and its staff with the type of positive experiences that the agency has become so well known for over 135 years.

Happy Anniversary V.F. McNeil Insurance and thank you to each and every person that has been an inspiration and a part of our journey!
