Let’s talk about fulfilling life

Ameritas offers insurance, financial services and employee benefits, but we deliver so much more. The comfort of a human voice when you need it most. The thrill of your child seeing clearly with a new pair of glasses. The confidence of planning your dream retirement. The comfort of running your business knowing you and your employees are covered. Ultimately, we help you plan well and enjoy life. We call it fulfilling life.

Our mutual advantage

As a mutual-based organization, we always put our customers first. Our mutual advantage means we aren’t obligated to Wall Street analysts and stockholders.

Our business structure supports our commitment to fulfilling life. Mutuality means we’re free to focus on what’s best for you. Free to focus on long-term stability over short-term results. Free to build on the financial strength that allows us to keep our promises for generations to come.

If you’re starting to feel like you could do business with us, remember one thing: The feeling’s mutual.
