New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Company started in 1913, two years after New Jersey joined nine other states in creating the nation’s first workmen’s compensation systems. After the law required factories to provide injured works with medical care and partial wage replacement, NJ factory owners saw a need for a local, safety-oriented, reliable insurance provider – thus New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance was born.
New Jersey Manufacturer Insurance has many nicknames including, “Manufacturers”, “NJ Manufacturers,” “New Jersey Manufacturers,” and “NJM.” The company celebrated their centennial anniversary in 2013. From the beginning, New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance has strived to be known for their efficiency, integrity and superior service.
New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance offers a variety of different insurance products. Customers can purchase auto insurance, homeowners insurance, condo insurance, renters insurance, umbrella insurance and flood insurance. NJ Manufacturers Insurance also offers commercial policies for workers’ compensation and commercial auto.
NJM is currently one of the largest auto insurance companies in New Jersey and when combined with their Pennsylvania drivers, insures over 800,000 vehicles. The company advertises that they offer competitive auto insurance rates.
Claims for flood, homeowners and personal and commercial auto can be filed 24/7. NJM offers both online and phone options for filing these claims. Workers’ compensation claims can be filed Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is also an online option available through registration.
