Building on our dream: We got our start in 1927, and are now the nation's third-largest mutual property/casualty insurance company, ranking 373 on the Fortune 500 list*. Our products – auto, homeowners, life, business and farm/ranch insurance – are available exclusively through agents in 19 states. Additionally, our affiliates (The General, Homesite and AssureStart) provide options for consumers who want to manage their insurance matters directly over the Internet or by phone.
