For nearly two centuries, life insurers have been there providing financial security to Americans through wars, recessions and pandemics. COVID-19 was no different. We made historic payouts in a time when people needed us most. Safeguarding people — and the most important things to them — is our fundamental mission.
Life insurers are committed to helping more Americans plan and save for a secure financial future.
These products make certain people are protected from the financial shocks that sickness or injury can bring.
We partner with employees of all sizes to deliver essential workplace benefits, including paid leave, disability insurance, dental coverage and retirement savings.
From paid sick leave for individuals and small businesses to predictable income for those in retirement, our policyholders count on us to plan for tomorrow, so they can live confidently today.
