Message From the President

On behalf of the employees and directors of The Philadelphia Contributionship, I want to welcome you to our website. In 1752, Benjamin Franklin and his colleagues founded The Philadelphia Contributionship to provide fire insurance protection for the urban community. More than 250 years later, we continue that tradition, doing business through a fleet of companies offering competitive products and services that meet the needs of today’s property owners.

As the oldest successful property and casualty insurance company in America, we have built a legacy of financial strength that gives our policyholders confidence that we will be there when they need us most – when a claim occurs. That financial strength is evident through our A (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best Company. We have maintained an A (Excellent) or higher rating from A.M. Best since 1922 – a track record that sets us apart in our industry.

We pride ourselves in providing superior service to our customers, including our policyholders and more than 250 independent insurance agents that distribute our products. Our team of customer service representatives, claims, sales and underwriting professionals are here to provide that service every day.

I would like to thank our current customers for placing your personal insurance with us, and welcome new customers to be a part of something special. You can rely on us to meet your needs today and into the future. The Philadelphia Contributionship is rooted in history and focused on the future.


Robert G. Whitlock, Jr., FCAS, MAAA
President and CEO
