In 1921, Robert Pein set out to create a new kind of insurance company. He was frustrated by insurance rates that were too high and claim settlements that weren’t handled fairly. State Automobile Mutual Insurance Company, he said, would be different. He pledged reasonable rates with prompt and fair claim service that remain our hallmark to this day.
We’ve grown a lot since then. Today we have assets of $4.6 billion and write $2.0 billion in premium in 33 states. And we continue to rely on independent agents to market our products.
