Mutual Benefit Group, headquartered in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, joins 70 other leading companies as a member of the Trusted Choice® consumer branding program for independent insurance agents and brokers.
"For more than 100 years, Mutual Benefit Group has partnered with independent insurance agents to provide personalized service to their policyholders," says Dave Evans, Trusted Choice executive director. "By joining forces with Trusted Choice, the Mutual Benefit Group team is further demonstrating its commitment to the independent agent community and serving the needs of agents and insurance customers."
In 1908, 14 businessmen founded Mutual Benefit Group in a small Pennsylvania town built entirely of wooden structures. Realizing they needed a way to protect themselves from the threat of fire, they pooled their financial resources to form a mutual insurance association, which eventually became known as Mutual Benefit Insurance Company.
Today, the association is a member of Mutual Benefit Group and offers a full line of personal and commercial insurance coverage, including homeowners, auto, commercial package plans, business owners policies, contractors, workers compensation, inland marine and umbrella through its member underwriting companies, Mutual Benefit Insurance Company and Select Risk Insurance Company.
"Mutual Benefit has always sold its coverage exclusively through independent agents because we've seen firsthand how the advice and advocacy of agents benefit our policyholders," says Kevin O'Brien, Mutual Benefit Group senior vice president of insurance. "Supporting Trusted Choice is one more way that Mutual Benefit can demonstrate its strong belief in the invaluable contributions independent agents make to the protection of the consumers they serve and to the vitality of the insurance industry."
