We have consistently demonstrated stability, management expertise, and the ability to meet financial obligations. The Oregon Mutual Group has earned the A-(Excellent) financial strength rating from the A.M. Best Company since 1990.

Thirty-five years after Oregon became a state, Oregon Mutual Insurance Company was founded by a local group concerned about the affordability of insurance. They wanted their own company, one that understood the needs of the local people in the West. “Insurance of the people, by the people and for the people” was their motto. They organized a “Mutual” insurance company based on the concept that members needs come first.
As an Oregon Mutual policyholder, you have an ownership stake in the company and can be assured that your company has your interests and welfare first in mind. We are not a stock company who raises capital by selling stock so we don’t answer to shareholders, we answer to our members. Oregon Mutual does not have market and investor pressure to maximize profits, which helps us keep our rates as low as possible. Our foremost responsibility is to serve our policyholders. It's who we are.
