A.M. Best Affirms A+ Rating for OneAmerica
“Superior” financial strength and performance with stable outlookIndianapolis, August 7, 2020
OneAmerica® announced today that A.M. Best has affirmed the financial strength of the OneAmerica insurance companies, issuing its annual rating for 2020. The ratings analyze the financial strength and performance of the companies and the ability to meet existing financial obligations.
A.M. Best has affirmed the A+ (Superior) rating of American United Life Insurance Company® (AUL) and its affiliates, and The State Life Insurance Company® (State Life), both OneAmerica companies. The A+ (Superior) rating is the second-highest of 15 rating categories assigned by the agency in evaluating financial strength.
“OneAmerica is built to last during times like these, when financial strength and performance have never been more important in delivering value to our customers and distribution networks,” said Scott Davison, chairman, president and CEO of OneAmerica. “Our mission is to provide great products, exceptional service and relationships that customers can depend on for a lifetime and maintaining our A+ gives them the assurance that we are able to deliver on our promises when they need us most.”
The mutual structure of OneAmerica also allows its companies to prioritize customer needs, rather than focus on stockholder dividends, Davison added, noting more than $6 billion was paid in promises kept to customers last year.
A.M. Best also reported that 2020 marks the 70th consecutive year that AUL has received an “A” rating or higher, placing them among the top twenty life/health groups with consecutive high ratings performances.1
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 a Standard & Poor’s rating of AA- or higher.2
A.M. Best determined its ratings through its Best’s Credit Rating Methodology, which provides a comprehensive explanation of A.M. Best’s rating process and contains the rating criteria employed in the rating process.
Best also moved OneAmerica to the 38th largest insurance group in its “Top 200” listing, ranked by 2019 admitted assets, up two positions from last year.
