State Auto was founded in 1921, when Robert Pein set out to create a new kind of insurance company. He was frustrated by insurance rates that were too high and claim settlements that weren’t handled fairly. He pledged that State Automobile Mutual Insurance Company would be different, starting with reasonable rates and fair claim services. This is what State Auto holds to today.
Since then, State Auto has grown into providing 33 states with insurance through independent agents. Throughout their nearly 100-year history, they have developed a well-respected heritage and built a strong foundation.
As of March 2022, State Auto has become part of Liberty Mutual.
