Dickerson's rich history

Since then, the company has evolved not only to support the community throughout California but nationwide.

Alera Group - National Scope, Local Service

Our company culture has always felt like a big family. We continue to celebrate many work anniversaries that make it past 20 years, which is a true testament to a good work environment. Our company expanded in 2018 when we became part of the Alera Group, a national, independent employee benefits, property and casualty, risk management, and wealth management firm. Alera group consists of over 180 like-minded insurance agencies. Local service with a national scope. Being part of a large company has given us additional support and resources without losing that Dickerson family feeling.
