Two hundred years and beyond

The Hartford Financial Services Group, commonly known as The Hartford, began as a fire insurance company back in 1810, and in 1913, began to provide a number of insurance coverage options, including accident, automobile liability and property damage. The Hartford logo is a stag and serves as reminder what the company, which celebrated its 200th anniversary in 2010, stands for – strength and stability.

In 2016, the Fortune 100 company released its own smartphone app, joining the ranks of the largest auto insurance carriers and staying current when identifying and processing consumer needs and trends.


Consider The Hartford for AARP members

The Hartford is the contracted insurer for members of the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), which means that members not only have access to discounted rates, but also a few key features that add to the value of membership. Policyholding members enjoy the following benefits:

12-month rate guarantee: Rates are guaranteed not to change for 12 months, which can be a benefit if you’re used to a company might raises rates every six months.

RecoverCare - This is designed to help AARP members who need some assistance when recovering from an accident. It provides a $2,500 benefit to pay for necessary aid up to six months after an accident.

Lifetime policy renewal – AARP advertises that a member’s auto policy will never be canceled, and while that’s a valid perk for most members, there are exceptions to every rule. Consistently paying late, losing a license, convicted of driving under the influence, deemed not able to drive by a doctor or living in a state requiring elderly drivers to re-test for licenses will not make you eligible for policy revocation.
