In 1897, the company that would eventually be called Encompass almost a century later began selling personal insurance with the promise of “protection and security.” Even though the company began using the name Encompass in the 1990s, the EncompassOne® Package Policy traces back to the very start in 1897. Today, there are more than 2,400 Encompass independent agents in 39 states. Encompass Insurance is a subsidiary of Allstate Corporation and is one of the largest personal property and casualty insurance brands.
In 1923, Hawthorne K. Dent founded the General Insurance Company of America. Most insurance activity during that time was taking place in the Northeast, so its Seattle location made “The General” a pioneer not only geographically but also with their competitive prices and great service. Today, however, “the General” is called Safeco, and they offer insurance to people across the country. It was in 1953 that the General Insurance Company of America created a subsidiary called Selective Auto and Fire Insurance Company of America (SAFECO). It was intended to compete with national companies using computer automation tools, which allowed them to enter the life insurance business. By the end of the 1960s, the company also began offering mutual funds and commercial lines of credit. It became so successful that they changed the name entirely to Safeco. In 2008, Safeco was bought by Liberty Mutual Insurance Company, a change that allows Safeco to focus solely on personal insurance lines today.
