It All Started with Auto Insurance 70 Years Ago

Way back in 1950, Meemic was founded by a small group of teachers to provide affordable auto insurance to their colleagues. True to our roots, we’re still committed to giving members of the educational community the best possible value in car insurance. No matter what kind of car you drive, contact us and we will tailor a policy to suit your needs.
