Live Life Well Protected

Michael NoblesFor over 140 years Union Mutual has provided high quality insurance products throughout New England and New York.  As regional mutual insurance companies, each of our partner companies is committed to insuring all of our 140,000+ policyholders are well protected.  The financial strength of our companies is the foundation of the security we offer, and with record surplus approaching $100 million, we are stronger than ever.

2015 was certainly a year to remember.  Winter Storm Juno delivered record snowfall and extended below-freezing temperatures throughout New England and New York.  The combination of events produced more winter losses for our policyholders than ever seen before.  Working alongside our 400 local agency partners, we were able to quickly adjust thousands of claims thereby providing our policyholders the comfort of knowing their damage would be properly repaired.  As long-time residents of New England and New York, all of us at Union Mutual Fire Insurance (1874), New England Guaranty (1898), Community Mutual (1854) and Eastern Mutual (1856) know events like this can occur and we are ready to assist our policyholders when they do.

Despite the record-setting winter, 2015 was a year to celebrate due to a number of positive achievements.  During the year our customer base grew to an all-time high of 140,000 insureds, generating a record $170 million of written premium and a corresponding all-time high surplus of nearly $100 million.  For a third consecutive year we were recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work in Vermont.”  At an individual level, several of our employees received regional and national recognition for their efforts to provide an exemplary customer experience.  With more than 90% of our customers choosing to purchase their insurance coverage from Union Mutual year after year, it is evident that our friendly service and competitive solutions makes us one of the best companies to do business with.

To all of our existing customers, thank you for your business and your confidence in our Companies.  We hope you appreciate and value the difference in doing business locally with one of our insurance companies working alongside your independent agent.

We would also like to thank our agents and employees for their years of service.  Their dedication to serving your insurance needs is the foundation that allows Union Mutual to help you live life well protected.
