UFG began as the dream of one man, Scott McIntyre Sr., in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and
over the past 65 years has grown into a publically traded multibillion-dollar company.
UFG sells through more than 1,200 independent agencies in 43 states, plus the District
of Columbia, and as a life insurer in 36 states, represented by more than 900 independent life agencies.
We employ more than 950 individuals throughout our offices in California, Colorado, Iowa (corporate headquarters),
Louisiana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Texas.
Conservative Management Approach
UFG embraces a conservative management approach to business operations, which has contributed to its
financial strength and stability as a nationally recognized insurance carrier. We are a generalist company and prefer a wide
array of risk classes. Underwriting expertise is our strength.
By using a combination of conservative management, progressive leadership and competitive products, UFG has grown from a small
automobile insurance company into a successful regional carrier. United Fire & Casualty Company, the parent company of UFG, was
founded in 1946. In addition to United Fire & Casualty Company, UFG also includes the following wholly owned insurance subsidiaries:
- United Life Insurance Company
- Lafayette Insurance Company
- Addison Insurance Company
- United Fire & Indemnity Company
- United Fire Lloyds
- Mercer Insurance Company
- Mercer Insurance Company of New Jersey, Inc.
- Franklin Insurance Company
- Financial Pacific Insurance Company
We are gratified to have the opportunity to protect the hopes and dreams of individuals across the nation.
