The efforts of the dedicated team at American Family working with our sales force keep AFLIC on Ward's top 50.

American Family Life Insurance Company (AFLIC) is recognized by Ward Group as one of the nation's top 50 performing life/health insurance companies for the ninth straight year.

Criteria for selecting a top performer include financial stability, revenue growth, capital/surplus, net income and financial returns.

“Consistency in being recognized for this award nine consecutive years speaks to the quality and efforts of the dedicated team at American Family working with our sales force,” says AFLIC President Todd Fancher. "Our mission is to protect and restore the dreams of families after loved ones have passed away, and this acknowledgment helps demonstrate that value to our customers.”
