Life Insurance Overview
Life insurance is the cornerstone of financial security for millions of American families and businesses. It enables individuals and families from all economic brackets to maintain independence in the face of financial catastrophe. Savings in permanent life insurance and annuities alone represent more than 16 percent of Americans’ long-term savings in this country. By providing tools for protection and savings, life insurance promotes personal responsibility and thus relieves pressure on government programs. 90 million American families depend on ACLI members for life insurance, annuities, retirement plans, long-term care insurance, disability income insurance, reinsurance, dental and vision and other supplemental benefits.
