About Countryway Insurance

On May 11, 2011, Countryway Insurance Co. became an official part of Virginia Farm Bureau Mutual Insurance Co.

Countryway is a property and casualty insurance company based in Syracuse, N.Y. Countryway offers farm, home and auto insurance products in 10 states through more than 380 independent agencies. VFB Insurance purchased 100 percent of Countryway’s stock from United Farm Family Mutual Insurance Co., doing business as Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance.

At the time of purchase, Countryway had premiums in excess of $39 million and operated primarily in rural Kentucky, Maine, New England, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Medical, Dental, Vision

New employees can choose from a variety of affordable options. Medical, dental, and vision insurance coverage with a Health Savings Account is effective on your first day, and we share the cost of your medical (including vision) and dental plans. Flexible Savings Plans also are available to help pay for child care and medical expenses.

401k Matching

Our mission includes planning for the future, and that includes our employees. Farm Bureau has a competitive 401K program with a generous employee match and a great vesting schedule.

Generous Paid Time Off

In addition to paid holidays, Virginia Farm Bureau offers a paid time off program which allows employees the flexibility to manage and use their time off as needed throughout the year. New employees start with a generous paid time off package every year and unused PTO days may be rolled over to the following year.

Assistance and Discounts

Employees can take advantage of incidental benefits like a business casual dress code, Employee Assistance Program, a paid Farm Bureau Membership, Identity Fraud protection and Legal Resources, discounts with common services (like Verizon Wireless), and even education and tuition assistance.

Disability and Life Insurance

Coverage for basic life insurance starts 30 days after your start date, and will pay your beneficiary a benefit of two times your annual base salary up to $300,000 of coverage. After one year, employees are also eligible for Short-Term Disability and Long-Term Disability coverage.
