About Founders Insurance Company
Welcome to Founders Insurance, where our journey began in 1901 as Mutual Fire Insurance Company with just $100,000 of capital, three employees, and a small group of Illinois merchants, farmers, and homeowners. Over the years, we’ve grown and evolved, merging with Founders Mutual Insurance Company in the 1960s and adopting our current name, Illinois Founders Insurance Company. Today, our surplus surpasses $60 million, our writings exceed $100 million, and our 200-strong team serves clients across 22 states, all from our headquarters near Chicago’s O’Hare airport.
As insurance carriers, we pride ourselves on our financial strength, ensuring that we can provide the support and stability our agent partners and policyholders require. We continually strive to expand into new markets and develop innovative niche products, adapting to the ever-changing insurance landscape while maintaining the core offerings for homeowners, automobile owners, and business owners.
At Founders Insurance, technology integration is essential to providing top-notch service. Our streamlined underwriting, billing, and claims processes enable us to deliver unparalleled efficiency and responsiveness to our agent partners. Moreover, our diverse workforce, speaking nearly 20 languages, contributes to a vibrant and dynamic company culture.
We place great importance on fostering polite and friendly personal relationships within our organization and with our agent partners. As a company dedicated to the independent agent, we are committed to providing the support and resources necessary for our partners to thrive and grow alongside us.
Above all, integrity is at the heart of our business philosophy. Our history of standing by our policyholders, as demonstrated during the aftermath of the assassination of Martin Luther King in 1968, serves as a testament to our unwavering commitment to our clients. We invite you to join us as an agent-partner, confident that you will find a carrier with a steadfast dedication to excellence and trustworthiness at Founders Insurance.
