Ward’s 50 Awarded for Twelfth Consecutive Year

We are pleased to announce our selection named to the Ward’s 50 list of companies for 2020. This is the twelfth straight year Rural Mutual has been named to Ward’s Top 50, out of nearly 3000 companies in the P&C insurance industry.

“We are honored to be named a top performer by the Ward Group. This is a very impressive accomplishment for the 12th year in a row. This selection reaffirms the superior performance that we strive for and even after 12 years we do not take this for granted,” said Dan Merk, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer. “This could not have been achieved without our employees and agents hard work, attention to detail and commitment to our customers.”

Ward Group releases its annual list after analyzing and measuring the financial performance of nearly 3,000 property-casualty companies nationwide. In order to be selected, honorees such as Rural Mutual Insurance must pass a series of safety and consistency screenings in addition to recording superior performance over the previous five-year period. Recognized companies receive a Ward’s 50 seal and are listed among the other top performers in their same category.

For policyholders, another Ward’s 50 seal means that the company is financially secure and one of the most efficiently operated insurance providers in the country. This recognition also reinforces Rural Mutual’s promise that when a claim happens, we will be there to work with our customers in order to reach a prompt and fair settlement.
