The annual Military Times 'Best for Vets' rankings are the result of a rigorous review process. Military Times invites companies to fill out its nearly 100-question survey, tests to ensure the accuracy of responses and carefully evaluates survey data. In their ninth year, the rankings evaluate a company's culture, veteran recruiting, veteran policies and accommodations for members of the National Guard and Reserves.

"We are proud to receive this designation. At Combined Insurance, we take pride in hiring our nation's military service members and their families, because we value their skills, determination and integrity," said Bob Wiedower, VP, Sales Development and Military Programs. "This ranking affirms our commitment to providing meaningful employment and giving back to those who serve our country."

Since launching its veteran recruiting program in 2010, Combined Insurance has:

  • Hired more than 4,450 veterans, military spouses and their family members
  • Announced plans to hire 2,000 more veterans by the end of 2019
  • Joined the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership
  • Announced the company will grant any veteran or military spouse a job interview

In addition to providing meaningful employment, Combined Insurance also gives back to military and veteran-focused charities through employee volunteerism and corporate donations. The company has given back and provided support to numerous military and veteran-focused organizations, such as Luke's Wings, The Fisher House Foundation, USO of Illinois and Heartland Alliance – Support Services for Veteran Families (SSVF).

Combined Insurance has received numerous accolades throughout the years for its veteran-friendly corporate practices. Combined Insurance was named the #1 Military Friendly Employer for 2019 by VIQTORY/G.I.
