  • U.S. Life Insurance Activity Reverses in July Reports the MIB Life Index

    August 14, 2019 by MIB Life Index

    Braintree, MA. (August 8, 2019) — U.S. life insurance application activity reversed direction in July displacing virtually all of the prior June’s gains, down -3.2% Y/Y, according to the MIB Life Index. The 2019 MIB Life Index reflects a zigzag pattern that included five months of small gains peppered by two months of sharp declines, keeping the Life Index consistently hovering near par at -0.3% YTD. July’s application activity was down -7.8% from that of June, sharply steeper than typical July summer declines.
