Strength and partnership go hand-in-hand.
Your business. Your employees. Your peace of mind. At Sentry, we understand what matters most to you. Because we’ve been there ourselves. We got our start in 1904, when members of the Wisconsin Retail Hardware Association formed their own insurance company. Establishing the company gave members the strength of numbers, but it was the true strength of personalized care and Midwest roots that became hallmarks of the Sentry name.

Today, we’ve grown to become one of the largest and most financially secure mutual insurance companies in the nation by never forgetting where we came from. Or why. Perhaps that’s why many of our one million customers have been with us for decades.

And we can be there for you. Our Stevens Point headquarters is the flagship of an operation supported by claims offices strategically located throughout the United States. With more than $14.7 billion in assets, a $4.4 billion* policyholder surplus, and an A+ (Superior) rating from A.M. Best, the industry’s leading rating authority, we continue to provide peace of mind. One conversation at a time.

*Assets and policyholder surplus as of Dec. 31, 2015, and represent the aggregate total for all members of the Sentry Insurance Group and are not reflective of any individual underwriting company. A.M. Best rating as of 5/19/2016.
