Life insurance and annuity solutions for individuals and families


From our founding in 1848, the companies of National Life Group have been providing life insurance and annuity products that aim to bring peace of mind to everyone we touch.

Throughout that time, we have been keeping our promises to Do good. Be good. Make good.

We made good on our first promise in 1850, just two years after National Life Insurance Co. was chartered, when Rowland Allen died while en route to what he hoped would be the riches of the Gold Rush.

And we’ve been there ever since, insuring lives throughout the Spanish flu epidemic of 1918-19, meeting the needs of families whose loved ones were passengers on the Titanic and the Hindenberg, and supporting families when America fought in the world wars.

Today, National Life Insurance Co. and Life Insurance Company of the Southwest offer middle America innovative life insurance and annuity solutions so they can continue to life with the comfort of knowing they have taken steps to provide for their financial future, and the unexpected.

As it has been since the beginning, National Life Group and its companies are grounded on Main Streets, reflecting the values of the people they serve.

And what do we offer? A broad range of solutions that can give your family comfort for the future and resources in times of need. National Life Group's insurance companies provide a wide array of life and annuity products and custom solutions to fit the needs of individuals, families, businesses and non-profit organizations.

National Life Insurance Company was founded in 1848. Life Insurance Company of the Southwest was chartered in 1955.
