About Folks Insurance Group

Folks Insurance Group is dedicated to the highest level of professionalism and integrity in the sales and service of products designed to protect the assets of both the business and individual community.

James M. Folks, Jr. founded Folks Insurance Group in Sayville, Long Island, NY in 2001 with a simple belief: all too often in the insurance industry the needs of the client are lost within the "big business agenda." Under Jim’s direction, Folks Insurance Group takes pride in providing superior customer service by putting beliefs into action and building a relationship with every client they serve.

Despite opening their doors during a tumultuous time for the insurance industry and the world at large, Folks Insurance Group has written millions of dollars of premiums. Maximizing the benefits of insurance to enable you to feel secure in both your home and business life, Folks Insurance Group offers a wide variety of insurance products. The staff at Folks provides its customers with the best information available for both their commercial and personal insurance needs by taking the time to learn about each customer and identify the best steps toward ensuring that their home, life or business assets are protected.

"I have owned and operated my restaurant in the heart of Sayville for over 30 years, and it is always a pleasure doing business with Jim Folks and Folks Insurance Group.  He is an upstanding community member, and I have had the privilege of knowing his family for many years.   Jim Folks is a friendly, kind person, and has the utmost integrity as a business man.  His agency is extremely knowledgeable, and I know I am getting the most competitive pricing, along with complete comprehensive coverages, and that puts my mind at ease.  Jim Folks has been a strong advocate, and is always reliable when I have had the unfortunate experience of filing a claim.  Prior to signing with the Folks Group, I found myself underinsured and was devastated when I was not covered for a claim I made.  I now have no worries or anxiety about my coverages, knowing my business is taken care of.  I share this with you, knowing that insurance coverages can be confusing and frustrating, but Folks Group takes the unpleasantness out of the entire experience, and I recommend them to my family and closest friends, most of whom are clients as well!"
