Meet Josh Teweles - Nationally Licensed Life Insurance Agent with AIG Direct

Thank you for choosing to visit my web page! It's always nice to place a face with a voice and get to know a little more about the person helping you. I really enjoy helping my clients find the right policy at an affordable premium in order to help protect their loved ones at the most critical times.

I have been in the life insurance industry since 2010, and my current position with AIG Direct is easily the best job I've ever had. Thankfully, AIG Direct gives me tools and resources I need to help anyone who wants peace of mind, knowing their families will be taken care of after they are gone. I pride myself on being an “ideas” guy who can come up the creative solutions needed to take care of your life insurance needs.

One of my original mentors in the business explained to me he sold life insurance to help prevent poverty in the US. The last thing you want to see is someone having to move out of their home, because the prime wage-earner has passed away, and the family can no longer afford to live there. The emotional loss of a loved one is hard enough, but the thought of someone's children being uprooted from their school and separated from their friends because of a desperate need to move only makes things worse.

A prime example happened with my own family: my sister died from cystic fibrosis at 15 months (while my mom was pregnant with me) at a time when my father's family business was struggling to stay afloat. My parents had not insured her, and they were forced to borrow money for the funeral when they were already under stressful financial times. I can't even imagine how hard that must have been for them, and their marriage never fully recovered from those extremely difficult emotional times and financial hardship.

So, a little about me: I've bounced around through seven different states. I grew up in Princeton, NJ and attended the University of Michigan after spending one full year as an exchange student in Sweden. I liked it there so much I returned for my Junior Year Abroad. A couple years later, I left Ann Arbor and moved to Phoenix to attend the Thunderbird International Business School. After working in a family business for 2.5 years, I settled in New York City and began working with brokerage firms to help them integrate systems that prevent fraud and money laundering. In 2008, my wife was offered a job in Chicago that was too good for her to turn down, and within a year, I entered the life insurance industry. I have been with AIG Direct since 2014, have already helped protect well over 1,000 families.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. We love checking out different restaurants throughout Chicago and watching movies together. Sometimes we just head to one of the public beaches on the shores of Lake Michigan. We also love to take vacations to different parts of the US whether it's flying south or west, road tripping to visit family in New York, New Jersey and Vermont, or piling into the car to explore places we've never been before. In the past two years we've been to St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville, The Great Smoky Mountains, and most recently, a dream trip to Alaska. Personally, I love to hike, play tennis, and work out, keep up with rock music, and I'm on a perpetual quest to take the perfect picture (with my phone), whether it's candids of people or a beautiful nature scene.

Thanks for visiting my page, and I look forward to working with you.
