Encompass® History

A look back at Encompass.

In 1897, the company that would become Encompass began selling personal insurance backed by a clear, simple promise: "Protection and Security." Today, well over a century later, it's still a foundation of our business.

Since officially becoming the Encompass Insurance Company in the 1990s, we've had several notable events that have helped make us into the proud company we are today. Check out some of our key milestones:

  • 1999-2000

    Illinois-based Allstate Insurance Company purchases personal lines insurance business from CNA and introduces the Encompass name. Although the name is less than a quarter-century old, the EncompassOne® Package Policy traces back to 1897.

  • 2000-Present

    Our continued commitment to independent agents, customer service and innovative insurance solutions is reflected in our numbers more than ever, with more than 2,400 Encompass Independent Agents.
