Customers come first at Ameritas.

We’re here for the people we serve today with products and services designed to help improve their lives. We’re also investing in new capabilities to prepare Ameritas for serving the customers of tomorrow.

That’s what it means to take the long view.

Growth strategies across the diversified Ameritas business model produced continued momentum in 2023. As a result, the number of customers we serve grew by more than 304,000 last year, pushing the total number of customers past 6 million for the first time.

Total members’ GAAP equity came to $3.2 billion at the end of 2023. We distributed policyholder benefits totaling $3.5 billion in 2023, demonstrating what it means to be there for those who count on us.

The year ended with the retirement of former President and Chief Executive Officer Bill Lester. Bill’s 40-year career at Ameritas was marked by many accomplishments, most notably his leadership through the pandemic. We’re grateful for his caring and guidance.

We’re proud to be part of an industry that’s inherently purpose driven. It’s especially true for Ameritas, given the customer focused nature of our mutual structure. Our success is measured by the value we deliver.

We’re in the business of fulfilling life.
