About Horace Mann
Horace Mann was founded in 1945 by two Springfield, Ill., teachers who saw a need for quality, affordable auto insurance for teachers. We chose our name to honor the father of the American public education system, Horace Mann.
Today, Horace Mann offers a variety of insurance and financial solutions to help our customers and their families protect what’s important to them today and prepare for tomorrow. And we’re proud to have been selected by the state of Iowa to be one of four companies to help their educational, state and municipal employees achieve their financial goals and prepare for a successful future.
With educational workshops to both help you understand your options and identify dollars in your existing budget to direct toward your financial goals, Horace Mann is dedicated to helping you identify your retirement goals and working with you to develop a plan to achieve those goals.
And with interactive, online enrollment tools, we make it easy to enroll and get started on the path to achieving those goals.
We back all our promises on the strength of more than $10 billion in assets.1 And we’re highly rated by independent rating agencies, who routinely review us on our financial strength and claims-paying ability.
