about AIL

At American Income Life Insurance Company, we treat each of our sales professionals like family. In fact, we believe by working together, we can each achieve our personal and professional goals. It is this philosophy that makes a difference – and has made us successful.

It doesn’t matter if you’re already a member of our team, considering joining our team, or if you just want to learn a little more about our rich history… You are in the right place at the right time!

who are we?

American Income was founded more than half a century ago with just $25,000 in borrowed capital, and today has become one of the nation’s largest providers of supplemental life insurance to labor unions, credit unions and associations. American Income first appeared on the business landscape with a truly unique idea — developing a niche marketplace selling supplemental life insurance products to labor unions and working families in America.

The founding principle was to improve the quality of life of the working class and to provide opportunity unlimited to all who become associated with American Income and our sister company, National Income Life. We’ve succeeded in that endeavor.

Today, American Income is licensed in 49 states, New Zealand, and Canada — and our subsidiary Company, National Income Life Insurance Company is licensed in New York. We are a strong company and have been rated A+ (Superior) for overall financial strength by A.M. Best, one of the country’s oldest and most respected insurance ratings company (rating as of June 2007).

what do we do?

If you have a passion for helping people and enjoy the feeling you get when you’ve assisted someone in becoming more secure either professionally, financially or personally, then AIL is the place for you. As an American Income licensed representative you would be the liaison between the Company and the customer in providing supplemental life and health insurance to the members and families of labor unions, credit unions and associations. There are no sales degrees needed, or prior selling experience. People from all walks of life have joined our team and so can you!

where we want to be

Our vision at American Income is to become the premier in-home life insurance provider to working families in the United States, Canada, and New Zealand, and we want you to become part of this vision. Our 50 years experience in the labor union market combined with our powerful business ties and affiliations have allowed us to reach a level of expertise that’s hard to match. We are committed to finding more innovative ways to reach our markets and are currently broadening our earning potential by targeting new marketing avenues. In expanding our niche, we are searching for talented sales men and women with winning attitudes who are willing to succeed in an environment still standing on the philosophy and principle we were founded upon more than 50 years ago.

the sky’s the limit

Roger Smith, American Income’s President and CEO, explains the opportunity as follows, “Today, at American Income Life, we are pursuing a vision for even greater opportunities. That vision is allowing us to realize record growth and extraordinary milestones of success. I believe the best opportunities are still before us, and that your path for advancement, whether as an Agent, Manager, or Public Relations Representative, is greater today and greater with this Company – we have a lot to offer! Therefore, if you are ready to put yourself on the path to success, don’t wait! Your future begins today.

what is life insurance?

What is life insurance?

Life insurance is needed for the “what ifs” in life. What if I died unexpectedly? Could my family continue to live in our home? Would my children have the funds to be able to attend college? Will my family have the funds on hand to pay for my funeral and final expenses? Life insurance is there to provide financial help to those affected by the “what if” situations.

Whole Life Insurance and Term Life Insurance

There are two types of insurance, whole life and term insurance. The specifics of your life – your age, income, and other factors – will help determine which type of and how much life insurance is most appropriate for you. But one fact is always true – funds for your funeral and final expenses will always be needed. If the loss of your income would negatively impact those who depend on you, it may be prudent to add a term life policy to a whole life policy. Term life insurance can help your family financially if you should die during your peak earnings and asset accumulation years.

whole life insurance

Whole Life Insurance

  • Provides coverage for your entire life
  • Builds cash and loan value
  • Premiums never increase during your ownership of your whole life policy

The Freedom of Choice Final Expense plan

The Freedom of Choice plan is a whole life insurance policy designed to take care of immediate financial needs placed on a family when a loved one passes away. As the name implies, families have the freedom of choosing the funeral home, location, and type of funeral when it is needed.

Whole life policies provide you with the knowledge you will have permanent coverage with fixed premiums for the existence of the policy and the benefit amount will be paid in full to your beneficiary. Your beneficiary can use our Freedom of Choice certificate which enables them to assign a designated amount to the funeral home.

The death benefit is payable upon the insured’s death regardless of how long the insured lives. Premiums are payable during the entire lifetime of the insured. A whole life policy with premiums payable to age 65 is also available.

And this is not speculation money they are gambling with. These are investments of their Tier 1 capital- the safest and most valued capital a bank holds. These banks could hire anyone on the planet to manage their Tier 1 capital, but they choose year in and year out to put billions of their most closely held capital on the line with cash value life insurance. Why? Because banks are in the business of growing income and they know how good of a deal a well funded cash value life insurance plan is.

These are banks, not your family.
Here are the best reasons for your family to consider whole life:

Strength and stability in all market conditions. Its value doesn’t rely on booms and busts of stock market and real estate markets. And that’s good because who can rely on the stock markets and real estate markets- let alone at the same time?

Unlike owning stocks and mutual funds, whole life carriers put policy holders first. Policy holders have the name and number of an agency who will address their ongoing concerns, answer their questions, and work with them through any adjustments to the policy, if needed.

Liquidity. Policy holders can make tax free withdrawals from their whole life policy. Compare that with the other popular alternatives. Taking out a loan where you are paying bank interest. When whole life policy holders borrow from themselves, they save thousands on interest also. And they don’t have to be approved to do so.

Whole life is self-completing whether you live, die or become disabled. Period. Also unlike IUL, whole life insurance guarantees that a death benefit will be paid as long as the premiums are paid,

With the proper design a whole life plan can be tax free retirement income stream under the current tax law.

“THERE ARE NO NEW FUNDAMENTALS” – JIM ROHM

Over the years, a handful of varieties of life insurance have tried to rewrite the book. In the next few decades, we’ll likely see a few new varieties attempt to do the same. Time is on the side of whole life insurance. The longer it is around (especially when its alternatives come and go), the better track record it will have. And time is on the side of whole life policy holders for all the aforementioned reasons.

Fundamentals cannot be replaced or gussied up. They are the cornerstones on which everything else is built. Whole life is original. Everything that came after it is just another variety. Before getting caught up in flash and fun of UL, VUL, or IUL policies, read the label. See what’s really on the inside. Unlike buying an unhealthy $4 box of sugary cereal, buying a sugar coated UL, VUL, or IUL policy has long term consequences that put policy holders’ financial health in jeopardy.

term life insurance

Term Life Insurance

  • Provides coverage for a limited period of time

If you were suddenly taken out of the picture, term insurance could help provide funds for your children’s college education, paying your mortgage or providing a monthly income for a period of time as your family adjusts to the loss of your paycheck.

Get protected with American Income Life Insurance Company

American Income Life Insurance Company can help you decide which policy will best fit your family’s needs. With less money than you might think, you can protect your family when the inevitable occurs.

life supplemental and accident health insurance

Accident Protection

Just the thought of an accident taking the life of a loved one is very troubling. Find out how American Income Life can help when an accident takes the life of a loved one.

An accident can happen to anyone at any time and in any place. No matter what your age or circumstances, you or a family member could be a victim. Picture your family trying to make ends meet without your paycheck. Just as accidents happen in an instant, the lives of your loved ones are changed in that same instant. AIL’s A71000 Accident policy pays cash benefits for accidental injuries. The A71000 is guaranteed renewable and cannot be canceled as long as premiums are paid on time.

Hospital Indemnity

The first question you’re asked at the hospital is not “What’s wrong?” or, “Where does it hurt?,” but “Do you have insurance?” American Income Life’s Hospital Indemnity policy can help during this time.

What would you do if you or a family member got sick or had an accident? Would you be able to afford a large hospital expense? What if your family could not access the level or amount of care needed to treat a sickness or an accident? No one can predict when they will get sick or have an injury. But there is one thing you can do: be prepared. American Income Life offers an affordable hospital indemnity insurance policy that can help protect your family from the unexpected.
