Ameritas Life Announces Merger of Security Life

by Ameritas | Dec 21, 2016

Lincoln, Neb. (December 6, 2016) – Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. (Ameritas) has announced the merger of Security Life Insurance Company of America (Security Life) with Ameritas.

Ameritas, based in Lincoln, Neb., announced in late 2015 it would acquire Security American Financial Enterprises, Inc. (SAFE), the parent company of Security Life of Minnetonka, Minn. Since then Ameritas has worked toward a smooth transition of the Security Life associates and partners to the Ameritas family.

“While the Security Life brand may be going away, the sales structure will remain,” said Karen Gustin, Ameritas group division executive vice president. “The Security Life sales model will continue under the Ameritas brand, while offering even more stability and security for our partners and members.”

Ameritas’ acquisition and subsequent merger of SAFE was the largest in Ameritas group division’s history. “The most fulfilling part of merging the two companies is the approximately 380,000 new members we will be able to provide with dental and vision benefits,” said Bruce Mieth, senior vice president of operations for the Ameritas group division.
