In 1923, Hawthorne K. Dent started the General Insurance Company of America “The General” in Seattle, Washington. In 1953, the name SAFECO was born as a result of the subsidiary they created. “Selective Auto and Fire Insurance Company of America.” In 1997 they acquired American States Financial Corporation. This doubled their agent force. In 2004, they sold their life and investments division, focusing fully on property and casualty insurance, as well as surety bonds. In September 2008, Safeco became part of Liberty Mutual Insurance to offer a comprehensive mix of coverage, pricing and personalized service to individuals and families looking to protect their homes with home insurance, cars and more.
