This includes insurance to protect what they have today and financial products to help them prepare for their future.</strong>

Irving, TX

Horace Mann

<strong>We were founded in 1945 by two Springfield, Ill., teachers who saw a need for quality, affordable auto insurance for teachers. Horace Mann was originally called the Illinois Education Association Mutual Insurance Company, but the name was changed to honor the father of the American public education system, Horace Mann.</strong>
