There are 65 Town Mutual Insurance Companies operating in select areas throughout Wisconsin and Spring Grove Mutual is one of them. These companies provide insurance protection to Wisconsin property owners to protect them from financial ruin in the event of catastrophe and do so at a fair and reasonable cost. Spring Grove is a community-based insurance company owned by its policyholders.
Town mutuals provide insurance to members in their communities. Their "corporate" office is locally controlled and operated and they are committed to their neighbors and communities where their home office is located. The people who oversee the operations of Spring Grove Mutual are local business owners, farmers and property owners. They all have one thing in common - they are all policyholders of their local town mutual insurance company.
By becoming a policyholder of Spring Grove Mutual, you are supporting your local economy. Spring Grove invests money in local banks, purchases goods and services from local businesses and employ people in our community.
By having the head office of Spring Grove Mutual in your community, this allows Spring Grove to better meet the needs of its community by offering products and services best suited to your area. In addition, this often means faster payment of claims for policyholders.
Spring Grove Mutual is not in the business for profit. The "profits" gained are used to offer lower rates to the policyholders.
The Wisconsin Association of Mutual Insurance Companies (WAMIC) works to promote the best interests of the mutual insurance community as well as the best interests of policyholders of these companies. Spring Grove is a member of WAMIC. WAMIC wants to provide policyholders with the best products and services available.
No, policy holders with town mutuals do not have to worry about being "assessable." We purchase reinsurance which allows us to manage losses from a catastrophic storm so that all policyholder claims can be promptly and fairly paid. Policyholders will NOT be billed to make up for claims incurred during a year. Being "assessable" is more a part of our historic roots of being a town mutual (over 100+ years old) and is not something that applies in today's world. In addition, we are a member of the Wisconsin Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, which allows us and our policyholders to be protected with a solvency fund called the Policyholders Mutual Insurance Company. This assures that even the smallest companies will have the resources to pay claims if catastrophic losses occur.
