The roots of the Americo family of companies date back more than 100 years. Our growth has been built on the successful acquisition of several insurance entities… Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company (formerly known as The College Life Insurance Company of America, founded in 1946); The Ohio State Life Insurance Company, founded in 1906; and Great Southern Life Insurance Company, founded in 1909. We have a long history of innovation:
1922, Great Southern Life became the first company in America to insure the lives of children
1971, Ohio State Life was the first to advance death benefit payments to sustain the life of a policyholder
1981, Great Southern Life led the way as one of the first American companies to offer universal life insurance
We’re constantly striving to eclipse our previous achievements and define new levels of success for our clients and agents.
