Diversity and inclusion

We're all in this together. Diversity frees us to be ourselves.

Our diversity and inclusion policies go hand in hand with our mission to provide financial security and peace of mind for all our policy owners. In fact, our mutual success depends on a true culture of inclusion that reflects the communities we serve. We have steadfastly refused to ask agents and employees to conform themselves to a single way of doing business. Instead, we expect everyone to bring his or her own perspectives to the table. Thus giving us all a broader outlook.

Benefits and training

Our benefits and training mirror how we invest in every team member.

We offer competitive benefits and compensation, and the opportunity to be directly rewarded for your achievements. Our agents and employees are dedicated to helping clients protect those they love, prepare for the future, and enjoy greater peace of mind. Likewise, we believe in doing the same for our own people. We offer training at every level because we're committed to your success at every turn—and you'll never go it alone.
