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 auto insurance, MetLife (NAIC# 26298) had a complaint ratio of 1.06 for 2018. 2019 complaint numbers will be available in 2020.

Company Background

Life and Limb

The company began in 1863 when a group of New York businessmen formed the National Union Life and Limb Insurance Co. to insure Civil War sailors and soldiers against wartime-related disabilities. In 1868, the company dropped the casualty business and focused exclusively on life insurance becoming the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.

It now has nine affiliate personal lines insurance companies of which MetLife Home & Auto is the flagship. MetLife Auto writes policies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
