The Company We Keep

  • The Milner Group

    The Milner Group is a full service insurance brokerage agency providing impaired risk, life, annuity, health, disability and long term care insurance products to agents nationwide.


    HISTORY

    In 1866, Major John C. Whitner sold his first policy for property and casualty insurance to one of the many Atlanta businesses recovering from the Civil War. Little did he know the profession he was adopting would still be apart of his family six generations later.


    In 1958, Willis J. Milner, Jr. the grandson of Major Whitner, began working with life insurance carriers encouraging them to insure medical risks that had previously been considered uninsurable within traditional underwriting practices and guidelines. As it happened, his efforts helped revolutionize the manner and method in which insurance coverage was designed and delivered to those with medical problems.


    When Willis J. Milner, Jr. started the company in 1958, it was the first brokerage agency in the South. In 1979 when we hired computer programmers to design a multi-company application processing system, it was the first in brokerage. When the National Association of Independent Life Agencies created their prestigious HD Mooers award and elected the recipient, Seixas Milner was the first. When choosing an insurance broker to pilot their imaging and uploading systems, three carriers had chosen The Milner Group to be their first. We were the first to start brokerage, the first to automate and the first to image.
