Northwestern Mutual

Policyowners' Examining Committee

The POEC was established to provide customers with greater representation and to remain accountable to policyowners.

Northwestern Mutual POEC

Our unique Policyowners’ Examining Committee (POEC), composed of a diverse group of Northwestern Mutual policyowners, offers an unsurpassed level of transparency in the industry.

Each year, members of the POEC are invited to look at all aspects of our operations, management and strategic plan—independently and without restrictions. They evaluate our efforts to meet the long-term needs of policyowners and make suggestions for improvement. The results of their review are published each year in Northwestern Mutual’s Annual Report.

The Northwestern Mutual Difference

Following our long, rich history of doing the right thing for the people we serve, Northwestern Mutual’s work continues to lead the way. We’re building strength and long-term financial stability, one life at a time.
