OneAmerica is built to serve people through every stage of life. We’re there for our customers on their best days — the day they retire, send a child to college or buy their first house; and on their worst days — when the unthinkable happens, and a family is in its most vulnerable moments.
In 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we bore witness to an unprecedented level of human tragedy. OneAmerica was called upon to be the financial first responder for more families than ever before. We were there when we were needed, paying out a record $7 billion to our customers.
This number is meaningful not because of the dollar amount, but because it represents real people and their unique stories. We are a mutual organization with no shareholders, so our focus is squarely on you. Everything we do is designed to enhance your financial security and to enable you and those you love to live life on your own terms.
Being built to serve brings a responsibility to maintain exceptional financial strength and to prepare for the unexpected. Whether we’re facing a pandemic, a market crisis or changes in world events, our financial foundation ensures you can count on us, whatever comes. In 2021, despite paying record levels of benefits, we had our strongest financial year to date. These resources stay within the company to protect our customers and to provide additional product and service capabilities that offer new benefits.
On behalf of all of us at OneAmerica, thank you for the privilege of serving you, and thank you for entrusting your financial future to us.
