Our history: The short version
My, how we’ve grown. Come grow with us.
We started out in a donated room at the Tazewell County Courthouse, but today, in addition to our Home Office, we have established a designated claims center in Pekin along with seven service offices in six different states. We now do business in 21 states, offering an array of insurance products including personal, commercial, funeral pre-planning, and credit insurance as well as a third party administration company called Group Plan Solutions. We had 187 policies in 1921. We’re close to a million now because our strong belief in the independent agency system serves us well.
And how have we done it?
Our success is built on the talent and hard work of the creative and innovative people we hire. This is a place with opportunities for you to make your mark.
Did you know?
When we got started in 1921, we charged $5 for six months of car insurance. No, sorry, we don’t offer that premium rate anymore, but we do pride ourselves on offering competitive pricing and outstanding service.
