With a little digging, you’ll find insurance jokes. A few bears repeating here:
- Larry’s barn burned down and his wife Susan called the insurance company. Susan spoke to the insurance agent and said, “We had that fifty thousand insurance policy, and I want my money.” The agent replied, “Oh, just a minute. Insurance doesn’t work like that. An independent will evaluate the insurance price, and then we’ll give you a new quote for the same price.” There was a long silence, and then Susan replied, “If that’s how it works, so I want to cancel my husband’s life insurance.”
- Private Jones was sent to a military training center, where he had to instruct new recruits about their government benefits, specifically Serviceman’s Group Life Insurance (SGLI).

He stood in the back of the room and listened to Jones’ sales pitch. Jones explained the requirements of SGLI to the recruits, then said. “If you have SGLI and go to war and get killed, the government has to pay $200,000 to your beneficiaries. If you don’t have SGLI, and you go to war and get killed, the government only has to pay $6,000. Now,” he concluded, “which group do you think they’re going to send?” first to the war?”

Finally he asked the engineer, “How can you start the flood?”
- Professionals, lawyers and accountants are discussing the relationship between having a mistress or a wife. A lawyer thinks that it is better to have a mistress, because a woman can take everything if you come to the divorce. An accountant thinks it’s better to have a wife, from a tax perspective. Experts believe that it is better to have both, because when you are not with the woman, they think that you are with the mistress, and when you are not with the mistress, the master thinks that you are with his wife, and in this way, you can. spend more time at the office. (You may need to work in the insurance business, or know an expert to get one!)

- And there was an unfortunate man in Switzerland who sued for breaking the back window of his car. He stopped on a hill and forgot to set up a parking space.

- How about a lawyer in Charlotte, NC who bought a box of very rare and expensive cigars and protected them from fire, among other things. In less than a month he smoked all his big cigarettes. Before making his first payment on the policy, he filed a complaint with the insurance company saying that the clothes were lost “in a series of small fires.” The insurance company refused to pay, citing an obvious reason: that the man ate the beans as usual. The lawyer sued…and won! Instead of a long and expensive appeal, the insurance company accepted the decision and paid $15,000.00 to the lawyer for his loss of rare cigarettes in the “fire”. However, after the lawyer cashed the check, the insurance company charged him with 24 counts of arson!
