Which insurance carrier is right for you? Compare discounts, coverage, and quotes from Utica National and Kemper.
Utica Mutual Compensation Company was founded in 1914 as a workers compensation insurance carrier. The company quickly expanded its business by offering more coverage options and quickly becoming one of the New York State’s most successful and respectful mutual insurance organizations. Utica adopted the independent agent system in 1928 in order to sell auto insurance in areas not easily accessed by the office located in New York. Even during the Great Depression and World War II, the company kept growing and expanding. By the end of the 1940’s, Utica’s assets had more than doubled. Today, Utica National Insurance Group is an award-winning, nationally recognized organization which provides a variety of personal and commercial insurance products, through more than 2,200 independent agents across the country. The company has seven regional offices located in Virginia, Ohio, two in New York, Massachusetts, Texas, and Georgia.
After the state of Illinois passed laws regarding workers’ compensation in 1912, James S. Kemper founded the Mutual Casualty Co to sell accident insurance. Soon after, the company began selling auto insurance. Only seven years later, Kemper had offices all over the country and eventually changed its name to James S. Kemper & Co. By late 1960, annual revenues approached $150 million. They also moved offices from Chicago to Long Grove and became a part of a holding company called Kemperco Inc. By the 1970s, the company changed its name to Kemper Corp and revenue reached nearly $1 billion. By the 1980s, Kemper began offering financial services until 1995, when Kemper was acquired by Zurich Insurance of Switzerland, who then sold off the securities division to Kemper employees as a separate company called Everen Securities Inc. In the 1990s the company acquired Unitrin Insurance and founded Kemper Corporation. In the early 2000s, Kemper Insurance Companies laid off thousands of employees in Chicago and across the country. In 2003, they sold off their service organization. In 2015 Kemper acquired Alliance United Insurance Company and in 2018 the company acquired Infinity Insurance Company. Kemper boasts $11 billion in assets, servicing approximately seven million policies, employing more than 30,000 agents and brokers as well as 7,800 associates. Kemper is licensed to sell insurance in 50 states and the District of Columbia. Other Kemper acquisitions include Valley Property & Casualty Insurance Company, Warner Insurance, Mutual Savings Fire Insurance Company, Reserve National Insurance Company, Union National Life Insurance Company, United Insurance Company of America, United Casualty Insurance Company of America, Union National Fire Insurance Company, Capitol County Mutual Fire Insurance Company, Old Reliable Casualty Company, and Unitrin County Mutual Insurance Company.
