As a leading provider of individual and group supplemental accident & health, disability, and life insurance products, and a Chubb company, Combined Insurance has had a Chicago area presence since its founding nearly 100 years ago. W. Clement Stone started the company with $100, a positive spirit and a vision to make the world a better place. Stone developed and grew the company into what it is today—still operating in the Chicago area and with agents throughout the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
