ARAG® was founded more than 75 years ago by Heinrich Faßbender, an attorney and entrepreneur in Düsseldorf, Germany. He believed everyone should be able to assert their legal rights and created an insurance solution that offered the means to obtain justice, regardless of financial status. ARAG began as legal protection for car drivers and has grown to offer legal protection for all situations in life. After three generations, the company is still owned and operated by the founding family.
In 1989, ARAG purchased a division of Midwest Mutual Insurance Company and expanded business into North America where it provides legal solutions to consumers throughout the United States.
