Two Deserets, One Goal
In the early 1980s, Lynn Bascom started Deseret Insurance Agency in a rented office space from Deseret First Credit Union. The two worked closely and in 2003, the Credit Union purchased the Agency in order to offer insurance services to its members. Today, Deseret Insurance Agency serves both CU members as well as the community.
Deseret First members get the perk of having the services of a credit union and the tools of an insurance agency right at their fingertips. Together, they can help you reach your goals of being financially stable and prepared for the road ahead.Become a DFCU member today

You have always called me back. You have helped me with any questions or problems I have had. You have looked out for me, helping me to find lower cost but yet very good coverage. I had a claim last winter. First time to have a claim on homeowners. You called me right back and started things going. I had questions during the claim. You were there and answered my questions. Jan Witsman, you are the best. Thank you!Suzanne Baranowsky
Deseret Insurance has been my agency for over 15 years. We have used them for homeowners and auto, and they are so friendly to work with. They make sure that the policy meets our needs and helps us get a great price. Thank you, Jan, for being amazing at what you do.Elayna Boyd
The agency is always very responsive to my questions and has saved me money as a result.Don Sutherland
