“The revised outlook from stable to positive reflects the strength of our balance sheet, favorable trend in surplus growth, strong growth in premiums, and continuing operating profitability driven by disciplined underwriting, consistent investment returns and managing expenses,” said David Barra, senior vice president and chief financial officer at Ullico.
From its beginning, Union Labor Life has achieved lasting impacts. Nearly 100 years ago, when access to affordable insurance products was unavailable to unions, the company was founded to provide financial security to the labor movement’s members and their families. By providing essential insurance, Union Labor Life has helped create a new level of security for America’s working men and women.
“We’re dedicated to the needs of labor. Because our products are designed for union members and their families, we’ve established a history of long-term relationships and credibility in the market,” said Stephanie Whalen, president of Union Labor Life.
Today, more than 2.2 million union members are covered by Union Labor Life’s insurance offerings, and 49 group life policyholders have been with the company for more than 50 years.
“Ullico continues to report strong financial performance and demonstrate why it is the leader in providing insurance and investment products to the labor community,” said Edward M. Smith, president and CEO of Ullico.
The Ullico Inc. family of companies provides insurance and investment solutions for labor organizations, union employers, institutional investors, and union members. Founded over 95 years ago, the company takes a proactive approach to anticipating labor’s needs, developing innovative financial and risk solutions, and delivering value to our clients.
