About Us

Kurland Insurance is a family business, and has been serving the Chicagoland area since 1948. Our founder, Joseph E Kurland Jr. was an attorney & insurance adjuster while building his insurance agency. In 1974, Charles Kurland joined the agency after graduating from St. Joseph College in Rensselaer, IN, and in 1976 the Agency was incorporated naming Charles President. In 1979, after working 11 years as a court reporter, his brother, Thomas Kurland joined the agency. While attending Leo High School, both Tom & Charlie gained valuable experience working in the agency, so the insurance profession came naturally. In 1987, Tom & Charlie purchased the agency from their father Joseph, and in addition to the office at 81st and Kedzie, they opened an office in Orland Park, IL. In 1996, both offices were combined, and Kurland Insurance cemented its roots in Orland Park, IL.  In 2002, the agency continued into its third generation when Charlie’s son, Matthew Kurland, was hired to help expand the agency’s services.  With his knowledge from Southern Illinois University and having gained experience in sales & management in the transportation industry, Matt was destined to be a great asset to the agency.  Since joining the agency, Matt has headed our Life, Health, & Employee Benefits Department and expanded all our personal and commercial lines of business.  In 2014, Matthew purchased the agency from his father and uncle, and continues our professional commitment of service to our customers. Today, the agency has 11 licensed agents and is still located in Orland Park, Illinois. The Kurland Insurance Team averages 16 years of experience per agent, and is continually expanding our tradition of service to the Chicagoland area.

Kurland Insurance is proud to represent over 20 “A+” rated companies providing coverage for all your Auto, Home, Boat, Business, Life, and Health Insurance needs. The professional service you receive from our Licensed Agents starts with a live person answering your call during regular business hours.
