OneAmerica® Announces Dividend Payment
Dividend payout demonstrates financial strength and value to policyholdersIndianapolis, December 21, 2020
OneAmerica® recently announced its Board of Directors approved an estimated dividend payment of more than $31 million to its eligible whole-life policyholders in 2021. In addition, OneAmerica will maintain its dividend scales for AUL and State Life policies.
With its policyholder-first mindset and mutual structure, OneAmerica has a long history of paying a dividend and will proudly share its success again this year. The dividend reflects the steadfast commitment the OneAmerica companies have had to our policyholders for nearly 145 years.
“At OneAmerica, our ability to deliver exceptional value during challenging times doesn’t happen by chance,” said Dennis Martin, president of Individual Life and Financial Services at OneAmerica. “Our continued strong outcomes are the result of prudent investment decisions, a disciplined approach to underwriting and expense management, and enduring relationships with our distribution partners.”
OneAmerica has consistently delivered stable dividend payouts, despite a low interest rate environment, volatile markets and turbulent economies. OneAmerica remained financially strong in 2020, a year of unforeseen challenges and a global health crisis. A.M. Best affirmed the A+ (Superior) rating in July 2020 and Standard & Poor’s issued its AA- rating in September 20201. The insurance companies of OneAmerica are among the 8% of U.S. life insurers with both an A.M. Best rating of A+ (Superior) or higher and a Standard & Poor’s rating of AA- or higher.

The dividend scale reflects the financial strength and strong ratings of OneAmerica. The Board of Directors annually declares the dividend scale, which is based on three factors: expense, mortality and investment experience. When that experience is better than the guarantees provided by the contract, the difference is credited to the policyholder as a dividend.
