MADISON, Wis. (9/15/10)--CUNA Mutual Group is expanding its MEMBERS Auto and Homeowners insurance program by partnering with Esurance, a direct-to-consumer car insurance company whose mission is to make car insurance convenient and affordable. Current partner Liberty Mutual, which underwrites MEMBERS Auto and Homeowners insurance, is joined by Esurance as insurance carrier for the program, which is a core offering of CUNA Mutual’s MemberCONNECT program. For the past 12 years, MEMBERS Auto and Homeowners insurance has partnered with Liberty Mutual to serve more than 500,000 credit union member households. A subsidiary of the White Mountains Insurance Group Ltd., Esurance has more than 500,000 policyholders. The company launched its website, www.esurance.com, in 1999 and is now the third-most recognized brand among online consumers, according to Greenberg Brand Strategy. “As more consumers turn to the internet for their insurance needs, partnering with a company well known in the space that provides around-the-clock access to customer service and claims representatives makes sound business sense,” said Shad McKnight, vice president of Consumer Products. According to Esurance Vice President of Sales Tom Capp, “Esurance is uniquely positioned to help CUNA Mutual expand its insurance offerings to a broader range of tech-savvy members. We see this as a great opportunity to offer credit union members our ‘Best of Both Worlds’ approach to car insurance.” Esurance provides personal auto insurance direct to consumers online.
