Continued COVID Response

As we continue to see Coronavirus surges around the country, our top priorities are the well-being of our employees and their ability to support our policyholders and agents. To protect both, we have further reduced the number of employees working in our offices to minimize the risk of illness. While the majority of our work force has transitioned to work-from-home environments, you may experience slight delays in service from our usual standards. Please be patient as we all navigate the “new normal.”

During these difficult times, it’s more important than ever for families to keep their coverage in force. Policyholders who are having difficulties keeping their premium payments current are encouraged to contact us at 800-423-9765, extension *5920 to discuss options to avoid losing their valuable protection.

CFG Employees Donate to Community

Employees of Columbian Financial Group have collected over $6,500.00 at their Binghamton office which will be donated to CHOW®, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse.

CHOW® is a food banking operation that partners with over 100 emergency food programs throughout Broome County. Thanks in part to new distributors and agency partners CHOW® is able to turn just $1.00 donated into 5 meals. With this donation, that means that CHOW® will be able to provide over 32,000 meals to our community!
