YMI—Insurance that Inspires

In 1955, Yutz-Merkle Insurance Agency and the Lehigh Agency were founded in the Pocono Mountains and the Lehigh Valley. Today, these two companies have come together to form YMI Insurance—an independent insurance agency with the best team of advisors in the industry. A team dedicated to our mission: to protect, advise, and improve the people, families, and businesses of our community, one policy at a time.

The team at YMI doesn’t want to sell you a product, they want to make their communities better. When we save you money, we know that’s money that can go to another locally owned business. When we shop all our carriers for you, we know that’s time that you can spend with your family. When we take the time to explain your coverages, we know that our community is making better informed financial decisions.

Because at the end of the day, we only do as well as the community around us. We’re a family-owned local business and it is our mission to improve those communities. We follow our values to inspire everyone we meet and use insurance to help our clients live their best lives. Let us help you live yours.

Learn About Us

Both Yutz-Merkle Insurance and The Lehigh Agency were originally established in 1955. In 2022, they became YMI Insurance.

In 1996, Jim Honochick purchased the Yutz-Merkle agency and in 2011, he purchased the Lehigh Agency.

After a career in finance and receiving his MBA, Jim’s son Jimi entered the agency in 2021.

As an independent agency, we represent multiple carriers and can do the shopping for you. Our team consists of the best agents in the industry ready to answer any questions you have.
