Madison, Wis – For the fifth consecutive year, American Family Life Insurance Company (AFLIC) is on the list of 50 top-performing life-health insurance companies as selected by consulting firm Ward Group.

Each year, this provider of benchmarking and best-practices services to the insurance industry compiles the list by evaluating the financial data of more than 800 life insurance companies submitted to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners.

Inclusion on Ward’s list of top 50 for 2012 means AFLIC has met established performance requirements for safety and consistency from 2007 to 2011. These include measures such as surplus and premiums, adjusted net income and compound annual growth.

Companies that meet these requirements are then scored through the Ward’s 50 Certification Methodology, which includes such measures as five-year average return on equity, growth in revenue and surplus, and return on average assets.

Among other top-performance ratings AFLIC received this year was an A+ from Weiss Ratings for excellent financial strength and an “A” rating from A.M. Best.

“Overall, these industry designations confirm AFLIC’s reputation as one of the more financially stable, secure and consistently growing life insurance companies in the industry,” said AFLIC Vice President Al Meyer.

American Family Life Insurance Company is a member of the American Family Insurance Group.
