William J. “Bill” Benfield is a licensed insurance agent who works with individuals to find the best financial solutions to meet their needs and goals.  After working with clients in the financial and insurance industry for more than 42 years, Bill has seen trends and financial products available, along with rises and falls in the economy.  Bill has found ways to help his clients benefit from the “ups” and protect themselves from the “downs” of uncertain economic times we may find ourselves in.

Bill served as president of the Rocky Mount Association of Life Underwriters in 1988 and he was chosen by them as “Underwriter of the Year” in 1989 and in 2007.  From 1989 to 1993 he served as Area Vice President for the North Carolina Association of Life Underwriters and was elected Secretary in 1994 and State President in 1996.  During this time, he helped his clients achieve their financial goals.  While he is certainly proud of his accomplishments and professional leadership, Bill is most proud of his titles at home as husband to his beautiful wife, Carissa, father to his two children, Brad and Ashlie, and the apple of his eye is his adorable granddaughter, Ava.  Benfield Insurance and Financial Services is a family owned and operated business. You will find Bill, Ashlie, and Carissa answering phones and speaking to clients on a daily basis.  Bill has an office manager, Michelle Bowen who is also available to assist in any way she can.
