Insurance isn't often seen as a key part of a financial plan. Our advisors can show you how the right insurance and investment strategies can give you more options, flexibility, and confidence with a financial plan tailored to your priorities and goals—now and years from now. Here's what our version of planning can do:

  • Protect what you've worked so hard for.
  • Make the most of what you have with recommendations for saving and managing debt.
  • Grow your money with the right investments to reach your goals.

Dividends are given out when our earnings turn out better than we thought they would when premiums were set, and benefits established.5 As a mutual company, we don't have stockholders so instead of paying dividends to Wall Street, we pay them to our policyowners. Even though they're not guaranteed, we've paid dividends every year since 1872. Here's what you can use them for:

  • Anything you want (when you take it as cash)
  • Paying your premiums
  • Increasing your coverage
