Other ways to stay connected


Root is located at 80 E Rich Street, Suite 500, Columbus, Ohio. The only people who really come by are the employees, potential employees, and our caterer four times a week. We don’t have agents, so it’s not the right place to come to for a chat about your insurance (instead, check out all the options above). If you want to talk to engineers, however, we’ve got those in droves.


Let’s keep things casual. Current and potential Root members can always reach out to us with questions or comments on social media.
