About

The Insurance Federation of Minnesota

The Insurance Federation of Minnesota is a non-profit state insurance trade association representing about 50 insurance companies and other related organizations.

The IFM was founded in 1914 to help insurers deal with the Minnesota State Legislature on issues related to the state’s workers’ compensation insurance program.

About 25 IFM members are either headquartered in Minnesota or have significant operations here.

The IFM, based in Bloomington, Minnesota represents companies with many different lines of insurance including Property/Casualty, Reinsurance, Business and other lines of insurance. Our members include both mutual and stock companies.

From the IFM Strategic Plan: “It is the mission of the Insurance Federation of Minnesota to be an effective advocate for public policies that encourage the growth and continued success of the insurance industry in a free enterprise system.”

Today, the IFM continues its mission to act as an advocate for insurance companies and their policyholders at the Minnesota State Legislature and with the state’s insurance regulatory agency, the Minnesota Department of Commerce.

The IFM also sponsors the Insurance HelpLine, a free service offering non-biased answers to insurance questions. Dedicated, knowledgeable experts field questions on many types of insurance.  You can submit a question to the HelpLine on line by sending clicking on the Insurance HelpLine link.
