Resources that exceed your expectations

There’s more to a being a Grinnell Mutual member than a reinsurance contract. We provide products and services for your competitive advantage.

Special investigations

Our Special Investigations team has earned an outstanding reputation for professionalism in fire, explosion, and fraud investigations. These services are offered to Grinnell Mutual members at no extra charge.

Fraud and Arson Reward program

Insurance fraud is one of the largest economic crimes in the United States. Inflated prices, staged accidents, arson, and other fraudulent claims devastate local businesses, raise prices on consumer goods, and are dangerous.

Grinnell Mutual helps stop fraud on the front lines by offering up to $10,000 to anyone who provides timely and credible information about a fraudulent or criminal loss.

Report fraud and arson

Claims assistance

We are a company founded by farm mutuals for farm mutuals. As an extension of your company, we partner with you to provide the best solutions for your operations.*

Catastrophe adjuster (CAT) teams

Our CAT teams can provide you on-site claims adjustment services after destructive weather events.

Mutual claims services

From policy interpretation to disaster recovery, you have access to our claims experts, catastrophe assistance, and a 24-hour claims reporting service.

Reinsurance Adjuster Program (RAP)

When disaster strikes, you need a trusted professional to help you sort through the unexpected and pick up the pieces. The Reinsurance Adjusting Program removes the burden of finding full-time adjusters for your mutual insurance company.

Responsive recoveries

Your reinsurance recoveries are distributed quickly — usually the next business day — so you can indemnify your policyholders promptly and optimize your company’s cash flow.

Underwriting assistance*

Our focus on personal relationships runs through everything we do. We take the time to understand your company, its values, and its operations, so that together we can find the best solutions to move your company forward.

It’s a totally different world ... We have the education, the underwriting support, the claims support. We’re just scratching the surface and we are excited to be a part of something this great.
