Why is Northern Neck a Mutual Insurance Company and how does that benefit me? 

Northern Neck Insurance Company was originally chartered as Northern Neck Mutual Fire Association of Virginia by a special Act of the Legislature of Virginia in 1896. As a mutual insurance company we are not publicly traded and therefore have no shareholders. Instead, policyholders are the ones who share in ownership of the company. With a mutual insurance company, customers who purchase their insurance products - such as homeowners insurance - are entitled to vote in the board of directors elections. These policyholders have the right to expect that the company's highest priority is to safeguard their interests. So, when a customer purchases a Northern Neck Insurance Company policy they are receiving a quality product from a financially strong and reliable company that they have a stake in.
