Things to Remember...

  • Central National Insurance was rehabilitated in the early 1990s
  • Central National was acquired by White Mountains Re Ltd in 2009
  • Central National policies are now being processed by Esurance

Research for this Central National auto insurance review revealed that Central National Insurance was ordered by the state of Nebraska to rehabilitate in 1990.

While undergoing rehabilitation, White Mountains Re Ltd. began acquiring the insurance company in 2009.

The acquisition was approved by the state of Nebraska Department of Insurance and the court in 2010.

Under the White Mountains label, Central National auto insurance is now being processed under Esurance which is directly marketed and underwritten on the internet through call centers.

Esurance is currently under an agreement to be acquired by Allstate, but they are currently processing policies under the Esurance name.
