About Us

Building Communities that Support Dreams

Jack Salzwedel Our Commitment

At American Family, we don't just want to be located in the communities where we do business. We want to be a valued member of those communities, doing our part to support dreams.

American Family Children's Hospital

We are a Proud Partner of American Family Children's Hospital

Featuring a pediatric intensive care unit, a transplant surgery program and a children's cancer center, American Family Children's Hospital has treated thousands of patients from 49 states since opening in 2007.

United Way

We are Active Supporters of United Way

Annually, American Family and its employees contribute more than $1.5 million to United Way chapters in all of our operating states. In addition to being generous with financial contributions, our employees and agents volunteer many hours to United Way organizations. Check out the video to see why many of those in our American Family give to the United Way.

Steve Stricker Foundation

We are Supporting our Youth

That's why the Steve Stricker American Family Insurance Foundation is working to show young people that their dreams are not only achievable, but worth the effort. This foundation supports charities and educational initiatives, and empowers children to pursue their dreams.

Community Involvement

We are Empowering Our Communities

Each year, American Family provides one full day per every employee to give time to their community. Additionally, we sponsor charitable fundraising events and contribute to hundreds of non-profit organizations across our operating states.

Adjuster "very informative, knowledgeable"

I had Joe Ruedas as my adjuster for my claim. I have to say he was one of the best professionals I have ever dealt with. He was very informative, knowledgeable, and returned my phone calls in a timely manner. There was never a point where I had a question on the status of anything. Joe always had or found the answer. I also received my refund within days after the whole process started. I would like to write and thank Joe again, and hope he gets the recognition for being a great agent (adjuster)! Keep up the good work!
