  • Security Benefit’s Financial Strength Rating Upgraded to A-

    December 27, 2017 by Security Benefit Life Insurance Company

    TOPEKA, Kan., Dec. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Security Benefit, a leader in the U.S. retirement savings market, today announced that A.M. Best has upgraded its Financial Strength Rating to A- (Excellent) from B++ (Good) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings to “a-” from “bbb+” for the firm’s insurance entities, Security Benefit Life Insurance Company (SBL) and its affiliate, First Security Benefit Life Insurance and Annuity Company of New York (FSBL). The outlook of the ratings is stable. SBL and FSBL are collectively known as Security Benefit and are wholly owned subsidiaries of Eldridge Industries (Eldridge).

    “We greatly appreciate this recognition from A.M. Best and the acknowledgment of the broad financial strength we’ve demonstrated over the past several years,” said Mike Kiley, CEO of Security Benefit. “Our corporate profile is a result of an effective business model that delivers consistent earnings based upon the combination of an efficient distribution strategy, innovative products and strong investment capabilities all combined with a high-quality administrative platform.”

    The ratings upgrade reflects Security Benefit’s balance sheet strength, which A.M. Best categorizes as strong, as well as its strong operating performance, business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management. A.M. Best also cited a change in ownership contributing to the company’s ratings upgrade. On Jan. 31, 2017, Eldridge acquired ownership and control of Security Benefit. Over the course of 2017, Eldridge provided additional capital contributions that have materially increased Security Benefit’s capitalization. Security Benefit is on track to achieve record earnings in 2017 and has made substantial investments in human capital, growing to more than 1,300 associates across the enterprise.

    “The rating affirms the confidence and trust our clients have placed in us to help them to and through retirement,” Kiley added.
