About Hurley Benefit Services, LLC

After 20+ years of representing multiple life and health carriers, the entrepreneurial spirit started Hurley Benefit Services in 2019.


Business owners and individuals from Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana have benefited from our expertise to help them navigate the ever-changing healthcare market.


Our independent agency represents YOU instead of a carrier allowing us to custom plan an insurance package catered to your needs.


We offer health, life, dental, vision as well as cancer, accident, critical illness and other plans. We also work with clients beginning their retirement journey as they work through the Medicare framework.
