family together

Why Choose WoodmenLife?

When you buy a WoodmenLife product, you become more than just a "policy holder". As a WoodmenLife member, you become part of an organization large enough to offer you security, but small enough to care about each individual.

Different by Choice

We're a different kind of life insurance company: we're not for profit. We give back revenues to our members1, not investors, in the form of refunds2 and member extras3.

You receive these valuable WoodmenLife extras at no additional cost, just for doing business with us. These include funds to help with repair costs if your home is damaged in a natural disaster and access to community events and family activities.

Founded in 1890, WoodmenLife also gives back on a local level through chapters that help us lead community service projects you care about. We show our caring in many ways, including presenting American flags to civic and community organizations, and by providing assistance to senior citizens, the physically impaired and others through our local chapter system.

Financial Strength

For a life insurance company, there is nothing more important than financial strength. WoodmenLife takes this responsibility very seriously and backs it up with our disciplined business practices, sound investment strategies and industry expertise.

Member Satisfaction

LIMRA, an independent life insurance research and consulting company, conducts a member assurance survey of new members monthly. Ninety-eight percent of WoodmenLife members who responded to the survey say they consider the service they receive from their Representative at the time of the sale to be "extremely" or "very" helpful.
