About Foremost ®

Foremost Insurance Group is focused on you! Foremost is a national leader in specialty insurance. Our policies offer specialized coverage that will take care of the things that matter to you. Foremost is flexible and understands what you want and our products are priced competitively, combining superior value and coverage.

Foremost was founded in 1952 to insure manufactured homes and a few years later created the first travel trailer policy. We went on to grow from there, exceling in insurance for specialty products. In 2000, Farmers Insurance Group, the third largest auto and home insurer group in the nation, purchased Foremost, bringing us into the Farmers family. In 2011, we began marketing auto insurance under the Foremost brand.


We have a history of growth and financial stability, as demonstrated by our excellent A.M. Best “A” rating Foremost is part of one of the most stable, longstanding and well-recognized group of companies in the industry. We are the leading insurer of manufactured homes in the country. Our customers can count on us to be there for them when they have a claim.


Foremost offers flexible payment plans for various customers and budgets. We include payment plans, online payment, Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and credit card payments with easy online access.


Every Foremost policy is serviced by the Foremost Claim Department with 24/7 access and quick, responsive claim handling. We extensively train our adjusters to provide fast and accurate handling of claims.

Foremost quickly and thoroughly tracks the situation and delivers on-site presence to expedite claim handling and to provide excellent customer assistance. Foremost claims can be reported 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays. Customers can file a claim easily and trust that we will provide the highest level of service…from the smallest fender-bender to putting the pieces back together after a storm.


We are dedicated to the communities we serve, focused specifically on:

Education. We support programs that serve at-risk youth and help pave the way to success for the next generation.

Safety. Disaster response, recovery and prevention are at the heart of what we do, so we partner with organizations with similar goals.
