We appreciate our mutual members. Thank you for putting your trust in us.
Have a safe, happy Independence Day weekend!
Each year, thousands of people are injured by fireworks. In 2013, sparklers caused 41% of fireworks injuries. Sparklers burn at 1200 degrees, which is higher than the melting temperature of glass (900 degrees). Fireworks also cause thousands of fires each year.
Here are some safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:
- Be safe. If you want to see fireworks, go to a public show put on by experts.
- Do not use consumer fireworks.
- Keep a close eye on children at events where fireworks are used.
Our office will be closed on Friday July 3, 2015 in observance of Independence Day.
In the Spring 2013 issue, be sure to read the article entitled “Beware of Cons who are Pros.” There are many good local contractors. Unfortunately, storms often bring out unscrupulous “contractors” who watch weather reports and swoop into storm-damaged areas to try to make quick money before they disappear. You can read an extended paper on this subject under the Customer Service > Claims tab above entitled “Beware of Unscrupulous Contractors.”
If you are planning a vacation, be sure to read our Vacation Safety Tips found under the Safety tab, Practical Safety and Loss Prevention Tips.
Have a safe summer!

Our Mission Statement
For more than 100 years, our mission at Central Illinois Mutual Insurance Company has been to protect our policyholders from catastrophic financial loss by providing:
- Quality insurance products through local professional independent agents,
- Superior claims service, and
- Excellent hometown customer service.
We specialize in farm property insurance. We also provide insurance for homes, rental dwellings, tenants, and mobile homes. We offer special discounts for qualifying insureds, including newer homes, brick homes, and two levels of claim-free discounts.
Farm liability and personal liability coverages are provided through Grinnell Mutual. Auto/home discounts are available for customers who write their property insurance with Central Illinois Mutual and their auto insurance with Grinnell.
Why Choose A Mutual?
The mutual concept is the essence of insurance. As a policyholder, you agree to share in the losses of others in exchange for the peace of mind knowing others will share in your losses. You become a member of your mutual.
The company board of directors and staff work to facilitate the day-to-day operations and to strengthen the company. We exist to serve our policyholders rather than to provide a return on investment to outside stockholders.
