Laying the Foundation

for a Successful Future





Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company has been doing business for over 100 years. Americo Life, Inc., our holding company, is currently one of the largest, independent, privately held insurance companies in the United States1, 2. Today, all sales and marketing activities are facilitated through Americo with operations in Kansas City, Missouri.

The roots of the Americo family of companies date back more than 100 years. Our growth has been built on the successful acquisition of over 15 insurance entities, each with its own distinctive advantages.

Each of these companies has a long, successful history on which Americo is building its future.

  • 1922, Great Southern Life was the very first company in America to insure the lives of children.
  • 1971, Ohio State Life was the first to advance death benefit monies to sustain the life of a policyholder.
  • 1981, Great Southern Life was one of the first American companies to offer universal life insurance.
  • More recently, one of the first companies to introduce indexed universal life and annuity products.

Our strength and stability make the difference. Everything we do is focused on being here for the long term. Our products are priced with integrity, our credit ratings supported by sound investment management, and our level of service continues to exceed expectations.

We are committed to helping our agents build their business and grow with us for the long term. Your success and ours depends on the teamwork and relationships that are built between our Independent Marketing Organizations, agents, associates, and customers.
