About Country Financial

Country Financial began in 1925 when farmers, who were members of the Illinois Agricultural Association, decided to group together to provide low-cost fire and lightning insurance to farmers.

Farmers became the first salespeople for the company, as they realized that many “city” agents did not travel the dirt roads to meet farm families.

These farmers worked part-time selling insurance to their neighbors. The first year, 385 farmers took to the roads to bring this insurance to their friends.

Country Financial began selling auto insurance in 1927, then expanded to life and homeowner’s insurance. Later, the company grew and branched into financial services, as well.

Today, Country Financial offers policies in 40 states with agents in 14 states. The company has 5,600 employees, writes over one million auto insurance policies, over $3.2 billion dollars in assets and offers life, home and auto insurance, along with financial services and loans.

Country Financial also acquired Middle Oaks and Cotton States, both insurance agencies that, like Country, began as localized firms selling insurance to a specified group.

The company has corporate offices in Bloomington, Illinois; Arden Hills, Minnesota; Atlanta, Georgia; Middleton, Connecticut; and Salem, Oregon.
