OneAmerica® today announced that A.M. Best and S&P Global Ratings have each separately recognized American United Life Insurance Company® (AUL) and its affiliate The State Life Insurance Company® (State Life), both OneAmerica companies, for their financial strength. 

A.M. Best affirmed an A+ (Superior) rating, which is the second-highest of 15 rating categories assigned by the independent agency in evaluating financial strength and performance of the OneAmerica companies and their ability to meet existing financial obligations. 

S&P Global Ratings (formerly Standard and Poor’s) affirmed an AA- rating, its fourth-highest of 22 possible ratings, for the OneAmerica life insurance companies, AUL and State Life. 

"Out of our many investments in people and processes, we have one goal: to serve our customers better. Everything we do at OneAmerica centers on creating financial security for our members and policyholders,” said Scott Davison, chairman, president and CEO of OneAmerica. “Our mutual structure ensures our resources stay within the company while protecting our customers and providing additional products and services.”

“As proud as we are of these ratings results, the most important measure of our 2022 success is the $6 billion we paid to customers. That number represents thousands of times we were there when they needed us most and provides assurance that we can deliver on our promises and uphold our mission to provide great products, exceptional service and relationships that customers can depend on for a lifetime,” Davison added.

The insurance companies of OneAmerica are among the 8% of U.S. life insurers with an A.M. Best rating of A+ (Superior) or higher and an S&P rating of AA- or higher.1 

Best Review® also reported that 2023 marks the 73rd consecutive year that AUL has received an “A” rating or higher, placing it among the top 35 life/health groups with consecutive high ratings.2
