Ward’s 50 Awarded for Thirteenth Consecutive Year

We are pleased to announce Rural Mutual Insurance has been named to the 2021 Ward’s 50 group of top performing companies. This is the thirteenth consecutive year Rural Mutual has been named to Ward’s 50, out of nearly 3,000 companies in the Property & Casualty insurance industry.  

“For the thirteenth consecutive year in a row this recognition is an accomplishment we are very proud of.” said Dan Merk, Executive Vice President and Chief Executive Officer. “This could not have been achieved without the dedication from our employees and agents.”  

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 Rural Mutual 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 help our insureds rebuild following times of unintended financial loss.
