Laurel Highlands Insurance Group LLC is a premier, multi-line Erie Insurance agency. Servicing over 10,000 policies, LHIG is dedicated to providing residents of Westmoreland, Fayette, and surrounding counties with quality insurance.

Appointed by founder H.O. Hirt in 1939, LHIG is the oldest Erie agency in Fayette county and one of the longest tenured in the company. As the 2003 & 2014 recipient of the prestigious F.W. Hirt Quality Agency Award, LHIG represents everything Erie stands for: long term partnership, cooperation, continuing education, goal attainment, and most importantly, client retention & satisfaction. This award, given to only 18 of 2176 agencies, exemplifies the best of Erie. Their staff includes 14 knowledgeable & helpful team members with over 250 combined years of experience. “Our primary goal is to treat each of our clients as we want to be treated. We want our clients to be well informed, comfortable with their coverage and our agency, and to walk out our door knowing they are a part of our LHIG family” said Agency Principal & President Joe Rettura.

Joe, originally from Monessen, met his wife Joyce at Waynesburg College. After graduation he told her, “the last thing I’ll ever do is sell insurance”. “I was right, it is the last thing I will ever do because I have a passion for it”. Apparently their son, JJ, does too. JJ joined the agency in 2010 after graduating from Elizabethtown College. As the Operations Manager, JJ is following closely in his father’s footsteps. “My goal is to profitably grow this agency with solid ethics and a commitment to our clients, our agency, our staff, and Erie ”.

Joe, Joyce, JJ and the LHIG family invite you to visit or call them in Belle Vernon, Uniontown, or Masontown or at for all your insurance needs.
