Tomorrow is important, but life is happening now.

We don't think you should have to wait to live a full, happy life. Tomorrow doesn't mean the distant future. It means, well, tomorrow. Sixty years from now is the future, but so is sixty seconds from now. And we're here to help you make the most of all of it. Because when you're in control of your money and start realizing your financial goals, planning looks less like planning and more like living.

Why Northwestern Mutual?

As a mutual company, we report to you, not Wall Street. And every decision we make is guided by our mutual values: doing right by our clients, keeping our promises, and providing the greatest value at the lowest cost. That means when we do well, you do well, too. We lead the industry in giving back to our policyowners2 — issuing dividends every year since 1872, even during the Great Recession. Here are some more reasons why millions of people put their trust in Northwestern Mutual.
