The ERIE Difference

Since 1925, we’ve been providing the protection you need and the service you expect – all at a great price. See why more than 90% of customers stay with us year after year.

We’re a part of the community.

We’re driven to give back to our communities, from delivering Meals on Wheels and coaching Little League, to helping people rebuild after a catastrophe.

We know that our customers trust us to help them when they’re faced with the worst. We’re proud to be there when they need us the most.

H.O. Hirt's napkin notes


We're committed to a culture of service.

Our founder H.O. Hirt raised the letters ERIE out of the word SERvIcE to remind us of the high bar we set for ourselves.

What’s our secret? It’s our agents and employees who follow the Golden Rule – treating others as you would want to be treated.
