What does "GEICO" stand for?
Government Employees Insurance Company. Puzzled, are you? Well, the name goes back to the beginnings of our company. Founder Leo Goodwin first targeted a customer base of U.S. government employees and military personnel. Today, of course, GEICO has grown to provide insurance to a wide range of customers.
