About Us

Serving policyholders with innovation, experience and consistency as we evolve.

This may sound contradictory, but it holds true. While we’ve been around since 1947 and have the experience and expertise to show for it, GuideOne prides itself on innovation and creativity in approach, yet consistency and continuity with service.

We operate a little differently than most insurers — we don’t work for our customers; we work with them because their work is vital to the strength of our communities. We’re proud to say that we’ve been an advocate and an innovator for our customers since our founding in 1947.

More than 75 years later, our values haven’t changed. With an eye on the ever-evolving world around us, we continue to create policies that protect the people who strengthen our communities through their work in religious organizations, nonprofit & human services organizations, educational institutions, small businesses and more.

As we look to the future, GuideOne’s leadership promotes innovative thinking and a strategy built around underwriting excellence, technological enhancements, operational simplification and a streamlined approach to distribution management. Additionally, a dedicated and consistent focus on superior service to our customers is a fundamental component of our business year over year. While we continue to evolve our systems, processes and approaches, caring for our customers is now and always will be a constant.

We are licensed in all 50 states and operate through a network of thousands of independent agents who serve more than 50,000 commercial policyholders.   
GuideOne has a Best’s Financial Strength Rating of A- (Excellent). For the latest rating, access ambest.com.
