The Gabor Difference
Gabor has been in the relationship business since 1947. For over 70 years we have provided employees of the state universities of Florida with custom-designed insurance and retirement options. We pride ourselves on building long-lasting relationships that help us provide the best possible options to each client we work with. We are especially proud of our long-standing partnership with the State University System, which affords us the opportunity to assist college personnel with their financial goals.
The Gabor Agency was founded on the belief that public employees could benefit from an agency that could offer a variety of insurance and retirement options, and guide them on their financial path. Gabor strives to make this process seamless for our clients and the universities. Our professionally trained staff and agents emphasize service and managing relationships with the employees of universities, community colleges, and state agencies with whom they work.
Gabor has the unique opportunity to offer benefits from a variety of carriers. We carefully select carriers that provide Life, Disability, Long Term Care Insurance, and Retirement Planning. The nationally respected companies that we work with have been carefully selected for their competitive pricing, industry ratings, financial stability, and professional service.
Since 1947 our goal has been to provide a comprehensive and convenient process for providing insurance and retirement benefits. We achieve this goal by working closely with our university, college, and state partners and fostering our client relationships. With Gabor’s professional staff and diverse product options you can be assured our advisors can help you achieve your retirement goals and assist with your insurance needs.
Gabor is here to provide you with the same everyday guidance we shared on our first day back in 1947, so let us help you with “Protecting, Saving, and Planning for your Future.”
The world of retirement planning, insurance, and investments can be complex and confusing, but a little Gabor everyday guidance can help clear your path to success. Experience has taught us that a strong financial plan is comprised of five key steps:
1. Health Insurance
Did you know that medical expenses are the number one cause of bankruptcy in America? (study completed by NerdWallet Health). It’s imperative that you insure yourself against the rising cost of healthcare and the financial risk of having a major medical event. All State of Florida employees must choose a health insurance plan in their first 60 days of employment. For more information click here. Note: The Gabor Agency acts only in an advisement capacity for university employees who are seeking health insurance.
2. Long Term Disability
Your income serves as your most valuable asset. Owning disability insurance is critical to maintain your standard of living should an injury or illness affect your ability to earn a paycheck. Here’s a statistic to remember: The Social Security Administration estimates that 3 out of 10 Americans entering the workforce will become disabled before they retire. Help protect yourself now with comprehensive coverage you know you can rely on later.
3. Life Insurance
This is the primary tool for helping to protect your loved ones. Too often, families must bear the burden of making drastic decisions when a family member passes away. Life insurance helps support loved ones and helps ensure that your family can live comfortably even in the most difficult times.
Saving is an important part of making an enjoyable retirement a reality. According to a survey completed by LIMRA over half of the American population does not currently save enough funds to retire in the future. Creating a customized, detailed plan for accumulating and preserving your savings while preparing for the unforeseen is extraordinarily important. It’s vital to start sooner rather than later.
5. Long Term Care
At this step, it’s understood that you’ve properly insured yourself by obtaining health, disability, and life insurance, and you’ve planned for your future security by building a strong retirement savings plan. Financial protection through long term care insurance is the final step to helping with a comfortable future. Setting up a Long Term Care plan will help avoid potential pitfalls involving the sudden and unfortunate liquidation of your hard-earned assets or becoming a burden on your loved ones.

At Gabor we understand the importance of giving back. We know that when our community thrives we thrive. Gabor is proud to support Boys Town North Florida in honor of the late Jeffrey Gabor and his unfailing generosity & kindness toward others.
The Boys Town legacy began in 1917 as an orphanage for homeless and neglected boys in Omaha, Nebraska. Founded by Father Edward Flanagan, Boys town focused on teaching young men how to be productive, educated, and caring citizens. Since then, Boys Town has expanded to 12 regions across the U.S. and now supports thousands of boys and girls in need, as well as their families. Boys Town North Florida has served local children and families since 1983.
For nearly a century Boys Town has given at-risk children the family, support and care they need to overcome their circumstances and realize their potential.
Gabor honors the Boys Town North Florida organization with special events throughout the year:
- Gabor Day- Gabor Day has become an annual tradition at Boys Town North Florida. The Gabor Agency along with the family of Jeffrey Gabor come together to give back to this wonderful organization. We put together a variety of events for the children and their families to enjoy. These events give us the opportunity to appreciate all that this organization does for these families. We get to participate alongside the Boys Town team and the families they work with.
The Gabor Award
Gabor recognizes the hard work and dedication of our University and College partners. Gabor recognizes non-faculty staff at the universities and colleges with annual awards. We get the opportunity to present these awards to the deserving recipients at an annual award ceremony.
These awards are presented to employees to recognize their dedication and continuing service to their departments and university throughout the year. Gabor is honored to present the recipients with a monetary award to thank them for their service and dedication. We appreciate all that our partners do to help Gabor succeed and for the opportunity to recognize the efforts of their staff and colleagues.
