Horace Mann was founded in 1945 by two Springfield, Illinois, teachers who saw a need for quality, affordable auto insurance for teachers. Since then, we’ve broadened our mission to helping all educators protect what they have today and prepare for a successful tomorrow.  And with our broadened mission has come corporate growth:  We serve more than 4,100 nonprofit institutions nationwide, we’re publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (symbol: HMN) and we have nearly $10 billion in assets.

Horace Mann provides nonprofits and their employees with solutions designed to maximize savings, enhance benefits, and support their mission of civic service.

  • Horace Mann offers a new open architecture retirement platform with flexible plan design, fiduciary support and local on site education.
  • Horace Mann offers a suite of solutions to help educators manage student loan debt.  Our no-cost workshops describe options for refinancing or eliminating those payments and redirecting any savings to other life goals.
  • Horace Mann administers Section 125 programs—complete with flexible spending account debit cards.
  • Horace Mann provides payroll programs, allowing employees to make payments to their auto and life insurance policies as well as retirement accounts directly from their paycheck—at no cost to you or your employees.
