About Sentry
At Sentry, we understand what you’re looking for in an insurance company. Because we’ve been there ourselves. We got our start in 1904, when members of the Wisconsin Retail Hardware Association formed their own insurance company. But it was the true strength of personalized care and Midwest roots that became hallmarks of the Sentry name. Since then—never forgetting our roots—we’ve grown to become one of the largest and most financially secure mutual insurance companies in the nation. With more than $14.7 billion in assets, a $4.4 billion* policyholder surplus, and an A+ (Superior) rating from A.M. Best, the industry’s leading rating authority, we provide peace of mind to about one million customers.
