Betten Associates opened its doors on May 25, 1973, in a third floor office of the Citizens Nation Bank building (now US Bank). The office subsequently moved to several other locations and in 1984 settled at its present location at 1404 South Marshall Street. Over the years Betten Associates has established a reputation of concern for people, quality service and integrity

Dwain’s main interest has always been life insurance. For that reason he has always been an active member of the life insurance industries professional association, now called the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA). Here are some interesting and significant bench marks of his career:

  • Earned Certified Financial Planner designation (CFP) in 1991.
  • Earned Life Underwriting Training Council
  • Fellow designation (LUTCF) in 1986.
  • Two terms as President of NAIFA Iowa.
  • Newell C. Day Award winner in 1997 (Outstanding Life Underwriter in Iowa).
  • Frequent speaker at industry meeting, training courses and conventions.
This is all part of a constant desire to learn and grow in his profession.

Dwain moved to Boone in 1969 to teach Physics at DMACC, but after four years his entrepreneurial spirit took over and he started a scratch insurance agency affiliated with Aetna Life and Casualty.

As was stated in Dwain’s biographical sketch, his main interest and strong area of expertise is Life Insurance. For that reason Betten Associates has agents with special knowledge in other areas. Those areas include disability, income, health insurance and long term care. There is also access to several insurance brokerage outlets that have a large variety of products and specialities in selected areas. This gives Betten Associates a broad range of products and services and an in-depth level of knowledge and expertise.
