About Us

German Mutual Insurance Association was established in 1887 by a group of local farmers and businessmen. It was a way for customers to better handle potential devastating financial consequences due to a catastrophic disaster or accident. Over 135 years later, that forethought remains true and German Mutual Insurance Association continues to be a business leader in Calhoun and adjoining counties. Located in Pomeroy, Iowa, German Mutual serves customers in Calhoun, Sac, Buena Vista, Webster, Pocahontas, Greene, and Carroll counties. The stability and financial health the company enjoys makes it a local fixture and a comfort to the many customers it serves.
