Steele Traill County Mutual Insurance was organized January 1, 2006 with the merging of Farmers Mutual Insurance Company of Traill County and Steele County Farmers Mutual Insurance Company. We are a mutual company. Every policyholder is a member of the company and as such is entitled to a vote at the annual meeting held on a day within the last 10 days of March, at 7:00 P.M in Steele County in even numbered years and in Traill County in odd numbered years. Properties insurable and types of insurance available are: Homeowners multi-peril, fire and wind, broad form extended coverage on farm property, non-farm residential property, mobile homes, and seasonal dwellings. Scheduled farm personal property insurance, farm liability and comprehensive personal liability insurance are also available.
The company is directed by the board of directors and the company’s manager. The directors are elected at the annual meeting and serve a three year term. The manager is in charge of underwriting, claims settlement, policy interpretation, business development, accounting and data processing.
Steele Traill County Mutual Insurance Company’s aim is to provide high quality, low cost insurance products to farm, ranch, and small town residents in North Dakota, while maintaining local control and reinvesting in ourselves. Above all we provide “peace of mind” in the face of random catastrophic acts of God and man with the will and resources to restore our members to pre-loss status. Steele Traill County Mutual will balance the interest of the company, its policyholders, and agents in a manner resulting in financial security, growth and mutual benefits for all parties.
