I'm here to educate and serve my clients.

My clients are anyone who wants my service, not just policyholders

Paul CassidyMy name is Paul Cassidy, and I am a Farmers Insurance Agent in Oceanside, California. My career began in a family-based agency, where I worked with my parent’s and grandmother’s company, developing strong customer service ethics early on. 

I have received awards and recognition from my company for my customer service and dedication to my clients. More importantly, the local businesses and local professionals I work with daily, have awarded me for my participation in building a stronger community through local charities and community service projects. 

My mission is: “To Educate and Service my Clients’ Insurance Needs. Clients are Anyone We Service, not Only Policyholders.” This often means advising clients to stay with the company they are currently with, but only after fully reviewing their insurance portfolio and coverage needs.

    From leftover candy to table scraps, dogs and cats have a propensity to eat anything around the house that isn’t boxed up or tied down. Yet, even the most cautious pet owners admit – it’s not easy keeping our roving furry friends from devouring harmful foods. However, what may be most dangerous to your dogs and cats isn’t just “human food” off the table. Seemingly innocuous household items like houseplants and everyday medications can be poisonous and even deadly for your pet! Are there dangerous foods for your pets around the house too?

    Here are four household items which can pose a toxic risk to your pets:

  • You know you need car insurance, but do you know what the typical car insurance policy covers? Do you know the difference between the named insured and a listed driver? What happens when a teen comes of driving age? How can you benefit if you have multiple drivers with different policies under the same roof? Why should you care about bundling? Here is some information to help you with these questions.

  • It's surprising to learn that about 85% of consumers believe life insurance is necessary, yet about 40% of consumers have no life insurance. The number one reason people give for not buying life insurance is that they think it's too expensive, but 8 in 10 of those surveyed overestimated the cost of life insurance by more than twice what it actually costs! (according to the 2015 Life Happens Insurance Barometer Study).

    Why is that? Why are we so reluctant to buy life insurance for our families? And why is there such a common misconception of its actual cost? It could be that many of us just don't know how much life insurance we need, and assume it's out of our budget. If the worst happens, that might be a costly gap. Thankfully, there are tools to help us calculate our needs, and determine just how much life insurance we may want. One of those tools to help us manage that financial gap in our lives is right here.

  • umbrella insurance

    If you’re even thinking about Umbrella insurance, chances are you might need it. Ok, so obviously that’s not true across the board. But generally, if you’re worried that even the highest liability limits of your auto, home, or watercraft insurance wouldn’t be enough to pay for a large liability award, then extra Umbrella coverage might make you feel more protected. That’s because Umbrella insurance extends the limits of your underlying liability coverage, and it can do it for a pretty small cost (usually somewhere around $250-$600 a year*).

    But how do you know for sure that you need Umbrella insurance?
