Our Whole Life insurance policies offers lifelong stability and protection.


The BEST insurance is the kind that is there when you need it.

We build our homes on strong foundations to insulate our families and possessions against the elements. Our careers are built upon a strong foundation of education, determination and experience.


When you are building your conservative financial foundation, why not proceed with the same level of prudence and certainty.


Our permanent whole life insurance policy is to an insurance strategy what a steel beam is to a building — lifelong stability and protection. It says that with certainty you can count on this permanent cash value life insurance to assist with:


Income replacement in the event of the breadwinner's death
Your most valuable financial asset is likely to be your income from work. In the event of your premature death, the tax-free death benefit can be an invaluable ingredient toward replacing that critical income stream.3


Provide a college education for your children
The quality of the future that awaits your children will largely be dependent upon the post-secondary education that they receive. Give them a leg up on the future by providing some assistance toward the end.


Retire the mortgage on the family home
The family home represents the standard of living that you have earned for your family. The knowledge that your family can remain in that home, even after the death of the breadwinner, can provide peace of mind.


Future collateral needs
The cash value component of a whole life policy can be valuable collateral, should you have future financial needs.


Advantages of Whole Life Insurance


Insurance that can last a lifetime
You can be secure in the knowledge that your coverage will never cease, regardless of outside influences, so long as you pay the premiums outlined in the contract.


Premium payments that are fixed over an entire lifetime
External factors, such as the interest rate environment or the stock market will not affect the required premiums. They are clearly stated in the contract and will never change.


Cash value that grows tax-deferred
The ability to conservatively accrue cash value is assured by continued premium payments. The cash value will increase on the contract anniversary, at a rate outlined in the contract. No taxes are due on this growth of cash value.1


Non-guaranteed features
You are eligible to receive dividends under the contract. Although dividends are not guaranteed, they can increase the death benefit in cash value. American National Insurance Company determines actual dividends earned.


The ability to receive a loan on cash values
You can obtain funds from the contract's available cash value to meet emergencies or anticipated needs. At death, any unpaid loan and interest would be deducted from the proceeds payable to the named beneficiary(ies).


A tax-free death benefit that passes directly and discreetly to your named beneficiary
Life insurance is not a matter of public record. Upon the death of the insured, the death benefit will be paid to the beneficiary once appropriate documentation is provided to American National Insurance Company.2


Whole Life Insurance can handle the contingencies of life


"What happens if I live a longer life than anticipated?"
Great! You have a conservative source to supplement your income that can help you sustain your standard of living throughout your retirement.


"What happens when I die?"
Your beneficiary will immediately receive the tax-free death benefit guaranteed by the contract. Those dollars can then be used for whatever purpose the beneficiary deems appropriate.


"What happens if I'm forced to discontinue premium payments?"
After several years, the cash value of your contract should be able to keep the contract in force for a period of time — possibly a long time. At some point, the contract will have a substantial number of years of paid-up insurance. No additional premiums will be necessary to keep the contract in force, on a reduced paid-up basis or extended term basis, although cash values may be drawn down. Existing loans, new loans and loan interest will draw down the cash value at a faster rate.

    If only...


    If only life followed such a script. But life is an unpredictable, unscripted adventure. And when the unexpected occurs, our responsibilities remain. Our commitments typically extend even beyond our own lifespan. Wouldn't it be comforting to know that we can assure lifelong preparation for whatever script life ultimately writes for us?
