Staff members in Vaden's office speak Spanish, and can assist multi-cultural customers living in the South Shore area.

"The South Shore, with its many small towns and neighborhoods, is one of the most close-knit areas in Massachusetts." Vaden said. "The licensed agents we have in our local office have grown up on the South Shore, and when you walk into our office or speak to us on the phone, we have a real connection to our customers that you can't find elsewhere."

GEICO agents in the South Shore local office look to bring savings to policyholders through multi-line and special association and alumni discounts. For example, alumni from University of Massachusetts and Harvard may qualify for additional savings.
