For over 60 years, Civil Service Employees Insurance Company (CSE) has focused its business on quality protection, affordable rates and long-term relationships with our customers. CSE was founded in 1949 in San Francisco, California with a very specific goal – "to furnish insurance at equitable rates to clients and promote the interests and welfare of public employees."

CSE Insurance Group has earned a B+ financial rating from AM Best, the nation's leading insurance rating organization. This rating is based on A.M. Best's independent opinion of the company's financial strength, operating performance, and ability to meet its obligations to policyholders.
