We're proud to share that our issuer credit rating from A.M. Best has been upgraded from an "a" to an "a+" and our financial strength rating has been affirmed at "A," representing our financial strength and our commitment to you, our policyholder owners. A.M. Best is the industry standard for rating insurance providers, giving consumers and agents an unbiased representation of a company's reliability and credibility.
Texas Mutual policyholders not only benefit from our financial strength, but also from our commitment to creating safer workplaces, which impacts their bottom line. Our A.M. Best rating is just one of the many ways that we bring value as a trusted workers' comp partner.
A history of excellence
We're proud to advance our issuer credit rating to an "a+," and we're proud of our strong history of excellence. Texas Mutual has been rated since 2012, and has consistently earned an "A" status. We're honored by this continued success because it shows our policyholders and agents that we will be here for Texas businesses now and in the future.
While these ratings underscore our financial strength, we continue to give back to our policyholder owners in the form of dividends. In 2018, we distributed a record-breaking $280 million to 50,000 policyholders. We're proud to uphold the quality and financial strength of the company and continue to deliver dividends to our policyholders who share our commitment to safety in the workplace.
Building on our foundation
Twenty-seven years ago, Texas Mutual was created to provide a stable source of workers' compensation. Year after year, we're discovering new ways to do it even better. Read our 2017 annual report to learn more about our achievements that are setting us up for an even stronger future.
Thank you to our agents and policyholder owner who contribute to our success. We share this recognition with you.
While dividends have been paid out every year since 1999, dividends are based on performance and therefore are not guaranteed.
