AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah Insurance Exchange offers reliable auto, home and other personal lines of insurance to AAA Members, in partnership with local AAA clubs in 23 states and the District of Columbia. With 2.3 million policies in place and $2.7 billion in revenue (2011), we are one of the nation's largest providers of personal lines of insurance.
Our company is rated "A+" by A.M. Best, the insurance industry's most respected ratings agency. We have also been a member of the Better Business Bureau for 80 years.
Based in Walnut Creek, California, we have approximately 3,500 employees located primarily in Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Jersey, and Oklahoma. For the better part of a century, our operations were combined with the AAA auto club serving Northern California, Nevada and Utah. In 2011, the two entities formally separated their operations and today work closely together to serve Members in that region. Other states served include Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Montana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, Wyoming and the District of Columbia.
In 2012, we funded the non-profit Community Safety Foundation. Its mission is to make strategic, philanthropic investments to improve community safety and disaster preparedness, provide insurance education and contribute to the quality of life in the communities we serve.
