Rice Insurance – Why Work With Us?

Our History

In 1946, Mr. Clyde Rice founded Rice Insurance to provide affordable insurance for individuals, families and businesses. Over the years, we have continued to take the time to listen to individual concerns, which allows us to understand your insurance needs. Our dedication to our customers is evident in our steady growth. Our strong Bellingham roots provided the groundwork to expand our services up and down the West Coast, across the United States and into Canada. Today, Rice Insurance has over 100 employees and a beautiful and comfortable office environment to serve our clients in.

Our dedication to remaining a local and independently owned insurance agency allows us to stay connected with our local roots and remain in tune with the needs of our community.

Our Mission

Rice Insurance is committed to the people they service and our community. Our entire team will do everything in its power to make dealing with and handling your insurance and claims as efficient and straightforward as possible. We even have a full-time claims staff to handle any claims that do occur. This ensures you receive all the benefits that you are entitled to and saves you from having to deal directly with the large insurance companies.

Rice Insurance prioritizes local involvement and our Charitable Donation Committee is the philanthropic arm of our company. We strive to contribute to building a stronger and more resilient community by offering a helping hand in addressing the many challenges that directly affect our surrounding neighborhoods.

Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America for the past 3 years.

Companies that made the list, on average, have grown six-fold since 2013. That’s a result most businesses can only dream of but Rice Insurance has accomplished it. Out of the nearly seven million private companies moving the economy forward every day, only a tiny fraction have demonstrated such remarkably consistent high growth.

We believe that offering clients the highest level of service starts with creating a terrific work environment and that’s why we’re looking for only the best and the brightest. If you believe you fit this description, join us!

    Easy Interview


    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rice Insurance (Bellingham, WA) in May 2017.


    Casual, just trying to get a feel for the type of person you are. It was for an part time internship so the process wasn't overly involved. They give you a trial period to see if you can do it.
