Because you are buying a promise, you want to know that the insurance company you choose is financially strong. One way to judge this is by the ratings assigned by outside rating agencies.
Major rating agencies issue public ratings on the insurance companies within the Great American Insurance Group. Financial strength or claims-paying ability ratings apply to individual insurance companies. The rating criteria and designations vary for each agency. Visit the agencies' websites for information about the rating agencies and their rating processes.
