Bottom Line: Is Kemper a Good Insurance Company?
Overall, WalletHub’s editors give Kemper a rating of 2.2/5, driven by its unique coverage options, competitive rates and nationwide service.
Kemper is a winner when it comes to the types of insurance options available – offering coverage for your car, home, health, business, and more. The company also receives especially high marks for its claims process and generous discounts, which include savings for homeowners and drivers of alternative fuel vehicles. But Kemper lost points because the company falls short when it comes to customer service.
