Bankers Life And Casualty Company Increases Alzheimer's Association Support To $420,000; Street Donations Grow By 12%

CHICAGO, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Through its annual street corner fundraiser and a separate corporate donation, Bankers Life and Casualty Company has increased its support to the Alzheimer's Association ® in 2012 to $420,000.

Bankers' annual Forget Me Not Days® event brought in donations of $320,000 for the Alzheimer's Association, a 12% increase from 2011.  In addition, Bankers – the national life and health insurer focusing on the retirement market – recognized the Association with a $100,000 donation to aid in the support of the Association's mission.

"This disease has a significant impact on our customers and their families in the communities we serve across America," said Scott Perry, President of Bankers.  "We're proud to support the Alzheimer's Association and the remarkable work they do to advance research and provide patient and caregiver support, and the growth of Forget Me Not Days over the years demonstrates the commitment and dedication of our employees and agents to fight this disease."

In its 10th record-breaking year, Forget Me Not Days saw more than 1,000 Bankers volunteers collect donations at locations in more than 170 U.S. cities in early May.   Since the fundraiser's start in 2003, Bankers has supported the Association with over $2.9 million for care, education and research programs.

"Bankers Life is a steadfast supporter of the Alzheimer's Association," said Angela Geiger, Chief Strategy Officer, Alzheimer's Association. "The dedication of Bankers Life agents has contributed to double digit growth in their contributions that support our mission of providing care and support resources to families impacted, and advancing Alzheimer's research."
