Gauging an insurance company

Before buying with a company it is wise to check on a company's financial strength and complaint record. The A.M. Best rating listed above gives you an idea of Liberty Mutual's financial strength to pay claims. A complaint ratio can be found on the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) site. The median complaint ratio from the NAIC is always 1.00. This means half of the insurers have a complaint ratio of under 1.00 and half have a ratio above. Basically, numbers lower than 1.00 are better with fewer complaints than the median and a number higher than 1.00 has more complaints than the median. For auto insurance, Liberty Mutual (NAIC# 23025) had a complaint ratio of 1.56 for 2018. 2019 complaint numbers will be available in 2020.

Company Background

Over one hundred years in the insurance business

Liberty Mutual insurance, the sixth-largest auto and home insurer in the United States, was founded in Boston in 1912 as the Massachusetts Employees' Insurance Association (MEIA). In 1917, MEIA changed its name to Liberty Mutual Insurance Company and partnered with the United Mutual Fire Insurance Company to provide complete automobile insurance.

Today, the Fortune 500 company offers coverage in all states and even offers insurance policies around the globe for both personal and commercial needs.


Consider Liberty Mutual for teachers, organizations and perks

Liberty Mutual offers teachers both collision coverage and vandalism loss protection with a $0 deductible. There is also personal property coverage, protecting teaching materials or school-owned property if it’s damaged or stolen while inside your vehicle. Teachers can also include this special auto policy in a bundle with home insurance for additional discounts.

Members or employees of any of the more than 14,000 employers, groups, credit unions or alumni associations within Liberty Mutual's affinity program are eligible for group savings.

Liberty Mutual offers many perks with its auto coverage: recall notification, 12-month policies, and accident forgiveness. With lifetime repair guarantees, take your vehicle to a certified location for repairs, and the company guarantees the work as long as you own the car. Liberty Mutual also provides Better Car Replacement, which means if your car is totaled in an accident, the company gives you money for a car that is one model year newer with 15,000 miles less that your totaled vehicle.
