McCartan Insurance came to fruition in September of 2012.  In November of 2013, our office was moved to our current location at 209 North Main in Pocahontas, IA. 

Since the beginning, we have sought every opportunity to remain at the forefront of the industry.  We utilize industry leading technologies to remain progressive in our operations.  In November of 2016, we transitioned our agency operations to paperless.  

We have developed into a leading full-service independent agency.  We offer a one-stop solution for all your insurance needs.
We are not employees of an insurance company; we work for you.  We understand the value of accurate coverage—we insure our customers the way we insure ourselves. 

Jason McCartan

​Principal Agent​


I have devoted my entire professional career to the insurance industry.  Upon achieving my Bachelors of Arts in Accounting, I began working as a Producer at a local insurance agency in 2010.  I recognized that I would better be able to serve the needs of my customers by developing an independent agency with a focus on superior service; therefore, I founded McCartan Insurance in 2012. 

I utilize my educational background and take a financial approach when assessing needs of my customers.  I feel understanding the financial risks you're protecting allows you to make astute choices when deciding your coverage, as well as which claims you should turn in and those you are better off covering yourself.
