The primary agency phone number is (724)-942-0007.  Please leave a message.  The voicemail is checked frequently and your call will be returned as soon as possible.  I encourage you to always contact the agency first with any questions.

Contact the agency if you need policy documents, policy changes, questions with billing and payments or if you need to file a claim.  You can access your personal lines and life policy information through your ERIE online account.  Once you sign up and /or log in, you can view current and previous invoices, pay your bill or monitor a claim.  Unfortunately, this access is not yet available for commercial accounts.

I have been a customer of Mr. Townsend for going on 15 years. He and his staff are always professional, polite, responsive and more than accommodating. They always ensure we get the most value in our plan and add a personal touch along the way. I would most certainly recommend D.L. Townsend to friends family and colleagues and have done so.

I can't say enough about DL Townsend Insurance. I recently had my vehicle totaled. I was prepared to fight to get a fair payoff of my vehicle. I was surprised at every step that they were 1 step ahead of me. From the rental car to payoff the process was smooth. Tell your friends about DL Townsend. You will be doing them a favor.

When my husband passed away a few months ago, David's assistance in processing our life insurance claim was great. He was very prompt in handling the paperwork at a very stressful time in my life.
No one likes to have to redeem a life insurance policy, but when it becomes necessary, it is a big help to have someone handle it quickly and efficiently.
