A Local Insurance Agency You Can Trust

We work for you – it’s only about you and what you need. We make sure our customers are insured adequately. With us, your assets and pockets are protected.


Our experience working for you

A quarter of a century in the business and an extensive range of knowledge on all the insurance companies, all types of cases and circumstances and all the options available in the market – that’s what we offer, plus effort, time and anything else our clients need.


It’s about relationships

We are 90% referral based – and that says a lot about how our customers feel. Client satisfaction is our single priority. Our clients become our friends, and they refer coworkers and family members alike, to an agency they know they can count on.


Efficient, accessible, accountable

We’re not a call center – you can call or come in and talk to an actual person, anytime. Unlike our competitors, we don’t work for the insurance company, we work independently, for you. As your advocate, we assist you through your claims process.

Friendly, Committed, Dependable

A Caring Business from the Start

When Roger Peña and his two partners started Beaver State Insurance in Salem in 1997, he saw that the Spanish-speaking community was underserved. His solution: set up a booth at a swap meet and let everyone know they had options.

Today, not only are those clients still with BSI, but Roger and his team still have the same commitment to serve everyone in the Salem community, with the same amount of accessibility (now at the office and online), great care and 25 years of experience, expertise and efficiency that has yet to be matched elsewhere.

To the Beaver State team, you are family. Become a part of a community where insurance is not just on your side, it’s by your side.
