This company consistently makes a good return on my investment. My only beef is that’s it’s not easy to pick my agent.
My dad used Northwestern Mutual for many years, so when it came time for my husband and I to buy insurance, we took his advice and went to Northwestern Mutual. We like our agent, Jake R, and his assistant a lot. He’s very interested in helping us find what we need at a price we can afford.

I feel the only time I hear from them is if they want my money. Little communication, hard to connect with when I have questions. Paper trail is the only way I receive answers clearly.

Northwestern Mutual insurance agent was professional, not pushy, explained each policy clearly and answered our questions. I have recommended Northwestern Mutual to all family and friends.
