Wellman Shew is the owner and agency manager of Shew & Company Insurance Services Inc., an employee benefits brokerage founded in 2005 and based in Fresno, California.
Shew has been an insurance professional for nearly four decades, specializing in employee benefits, Section 125 plans, life insurance, disability insurance, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), long-term care insurance, and 401k plans, among other things. His peers, corporations, and customers alike value his experience in the field.
In February 2022, Shew celebrated his 40th anniversary as a member of the California insurance sector.
Wellman Shew has witnessed a range of industry developments over the course of his long career in the employee benefits industry, as more organizations moved away from traditional pension models and toward new programs. Health insurance mandates prompted by the Affordable Care Act, as well as new marketplace choices that expanded the reach of benefit packages to the smallest California firms, were among the main shifts. Despite these significant changes, Shew has maintained his leadership position in the sector, as evidenced by personal profiles in industry journals.
Shew recently created a blog on his personal website, WellmanShew.com, detailing many elements of employee benefits and insurance in an effort to share his experience with other industry experts and customers. Health savings accounts, short-term and long-term disability insurance, high-deductible health plans, umbrella insurance, and how to save money on insurance have all been discussed recently. Consumer education is becoming increasingly important as plan options expand, allowing people to make the best decisions possible for their health and retirement.
