  • Northwestern Mutual Declares Industry-Leading Dividends

    October 30, 2014 by Northwestern Mutual

    Northwestern Mutual will share its success with its policy owners in 2015 through an estimated $5.5 billion dividend payout. It will be a record payout for the financial security leader and is expected to exceed its estimated 2014 payout by $300 million.

    “This dividend result is great news for our policy owners,” said John Schlifske, Northwestern Mutual chairman and chief executive officer. “It shows again why more people put their trust in Northwestern Mutual than in any other life insurance company.”1

    With its 2015 dividend payout, the company expects to again lead the industry in total life and disability insurance dividends paid.

    “Our dividend payout is the primary reason why we deliver the best long-term product value of any company in our industry,” said Schlifske. “Northwestern Mutual is paying record dividends on product lines in which many companies pay no dividends at all.”

    Record payouts on numerous products

    While about 90 percent of the $5.5 billion payout will be paid on whole life insurance, Northwestern Mutual also expects to pay record dividends on several other product lines. This includes $320 million on disability insurance, $150 million on term life insurance and $105 million on variable life insurance.

    In addition, Northwestern Mutual will pay $45 million on its annuity product line, including its new suite of Portfolio Income Annuities.

    In 2015, the company’s dividend scale interest rate on unborrowed funds for most traditional permanent life insurance will be 5.60 percent.

    Most dividends used to buy more insurance

    Northwestern Mutual policy owners have several options for using dividends, including taking them in cash. Most policy owners, however, recognize the excellent value provided by Northwestern Mutual and use their dividends to buy more insurance.2

    While dividends are not guaranteed, Northwestern Mutual has made a dividend payout every year since 1872. 3
