What is a Mutual Insurance Company? And, why should you choose one?
You’ve probably seen many insurance companies that have “mutual” as part of their name. It’s not just a clever marketing word. There are specific rules all mutual insurance companies follow which separate them from other insurance companies. Choosing a mutual as your insurer offers many advantages:
In a mutual insurance company, members are owners.
If you’re a policyholder at a mutual, you’re a “member” and will remain one as long as you maintain your policies. Mutual insurance companies are privately held, which means members have a voice within the company. Publicly held insurers are owned by stockholders who have significant influence over the company’s direction. We believe the shared interest all members have in a mutual’s success means a more stable company that’s focused on long-term sustainability.
Thoughtful Coverage that puts members first. Always.
Since 1898, Mutual of Enumclaw has been a steadily growing company. The reason we’ve successfully remained in business is simple: During good times and bad, we place the needs of our members ahead of everything else. It’s why we offer diligent, carefully prepared policies and responsive, compassionate claims service. That’s what Thoughtful Coverage means.
How we help members get through even the toughest times.
As a member, when you pay your monthly premiums, you transfer your personal risk to us, and we cover you against the risks in your life. Pooling our members’ premiums gives us the money to pay for claims and pay our employees. Any money left over becomes surplus, and put into a reserve fund that helps get us through extraordinary circumstances like a very bad wildfire season or an unusually harsh winter.
At Mutual of Enumclaw, we believe that insurance shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why we created Member’s Best, a new product that combines home and auto coverage together. Besides the simplicity of one bill and one premium, Member’s Best also gives you a collection of new and exclusive benefits.
Home is where the heart is. We understand how important it is to protect your home and your valuables. With a Member’s Best policy, whether it’s water damage, structural damage, or personal liability damage, we safeguard your home. Homeowners will enjoy what Mutual of Enumclaw is known for – the kind of coverage that really covers – protecting both your home and what’s inside, plus additional benefits that come with Member's Best.
Drive confidently. Whether you’re using your vehicle for everyday travel or for adventure, mobility is important. Our coverage for cars, campers, trailers, motor homes, and motorcycles, ranges from Liability to Personal Injury Protection/Medical Payments, to Collision and Comprehensive, to Uninsured and Under insured Motorist protection.
Accidents happen. An Excess Liability Policy can help protect you and your family from financially devastating events. If you are responsible for a person’s injury or for someone’s property damage, your primary policy limits may not be enough. Ask your agent about adding an Excess Liability policy to your Member's Best package.
Benefits, above and beyond.

Equipment Breakdown coverage protects you if you need to repair or replace equipment in your home unexpectedly, because of an electrical, mechanical, or pressure systems breakdown. Emergency repair calls or last-minute trips to the appliance store can be costly, so check with your agent to see if this optional coverage is right for you.
