COUNTRY Financial has retained excellent financial strength ratings for its life/health and property/casualty businesses from TheStreet.com.

TheStreet.com recently reaffirmed an A+ rating for COUNTRY Life and an A rating for COUNTRY Mutual. The A+ rating is the highest offered by TheStreet.com and is only assigned to seven life/health companies.

COUNTRY Mutual is among nine home insurers and three auto insurance companies with an A rating. Ratings reflect year end 2007 performance.

“COUNTRY is committed to financial strength. These high industry ratings are a testament to our clients that we take our mission seriously,” says Dave Magers, COUNTRY chief financial officer. “The ratings give clients the confidence they can trust us with their financial security.”
