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 Allstate'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 home insurance, Liberty Mutual (NAIC# 23025) had a complaint ratio of 0.58 for 2018. 2019 complaint numbers will be available in 2020.

Company Background

Owned by policyholders

In 1911, Massachusetts passed a law decreeing that employers needed to protect employees with workers compensation insurance. One year later, the Massachusetts Employees' Insurance Association (MEIA) came about. It was a mutual company, and so MEIA was owned by its policyholders and not stockholders. That's still the case today.

Three years after forming as the MEIA, and right about the time they expanded into offering automobile coverage, the company changed its name to Liberty Mutual Insurance.

Today, the Fortune 100 company is the third-largest home insurance provider in the U.S.and employs over 50,000 people in more than 900 locations.

Consider Liberty Mutual if you find insurance confusing

Liberty Mutual Insurance offers "Coverage Compass," an easy-to-decipher software program that allows you see exactly what type of insurance you have and where you may be vulnerable and thus want to get more coverage. The company isn't simply out to sell customers more insurance, though that's surely a goal; Liberty Mutual Insurance prides itself on having informed customers who know exactly what to expect from their coverage.
