Bankers Life And Casualty Company Named To The 2013 Ward's 50 List Of Life-Health Insurance Top Performers

CHICAGO, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bankers Life and Casualty Company today announced that it has been named as one of the country's top 50 performing life-health insurance companies in the 2013 Ward's 50 ranking— an honor bestowed to only 50 of the 800 life-health insurers analyzed. 

Ward Group, a leading consulting firm, analyzed the financial performance of nearly 800 US-based life-health insurance companies and identified the top performers over a five-year period (2008-2012).  Ward's specifically identified companies that consistently achieved outstanding financial results and outperformed the industry in key factors including: financial stability, revenue growth, strong capital/surplus positions, underwriting results and financial returns.

"It is a great honor to be selected to the Ward's 50 list of top performing life and health insurers," said Scott Perry, president of Bankers Life.  "This recognition affirms our commitment to delivering strong financial and operating results that our customers, shareholders, and employees come to expect and depend on even in sluggish economic conditions."

"Ward Group looks at company performance over a five-year period, and Bankers Life has demonstrated the ability to maintain outstanding results over the long term," said Jeff Rieder, partner and head of Ward Group. 

This is the 23 rd consecutive year the Ward Group has conducted this analysis.  For more information about the Ward Group and the Ward's 50, visit the organization's website at
