Which insurance company is right for you? Compare cost, ratings, and quotes from Pemco and Meemic.
Pemco was founded in 1949 by Robert J. Handy, a Seattle journalism and math teacher. He had at first envisioned insuring teachers, who were members of the Seattle Teachers Credit Union which he founded in 1939 (it later became the School Employees Credit Union of Washington). He wanted to “create a financial institution with a heart.” Handy was also working for an insurance agency, which enabled him to sell auto insurance to educators who came to the credit union to secure car loans.
A small group of teachers formed Meemic in 1950. They aimed to provide other teachers and educators with quality protection at affordable rates. For almost 70 years, they’ve been providing auto, home, boat and personal umbrella insurance tailored to the needs of the educational community. A.M.

The Meemic Foundation for the Future of Education was established in 1992 to provide financial assistance to schools, teachers, and educators, in the form of grants.
