Everything we do at Allstate is driven by a shared purpose: to protect people from life’s uncertainties so they can realize their hopes and dreams.  For 89 years we’ve thrived by staying a step ahead of whatever’s coming next – to give customers peace of mind no matter what changes they face.  We acted with conviction to advocate for seat belts, air bags and graduated driving laws.  We help give survivors of domestic violence a voice through financial empowerment.  We’ve been an industry leader in pricing sophistication, telematics, digital photo claims and, more recently, device and identity protection.  We are the Good Hands.  We don’t follow the trends. We set them.
