We are proud to be one of the world's largest insurance companies. Legal & General America, and our companies Banner Life and William Penn, pay close to $1 billion in claims to over 3,500 families and businesses every year.
At Legal & General America (LGA), our mission is simple: Protect more American families and businesses through life insurance. Our sole focus is to safeguard your financial well-being — and it has been for more than 70 years.
As one of the nation's strongest life insurers, LGA is ranked as number two for term life insurance providers in the US. Our long history of serving families and our continued financial strength is our foundation.
We are proud to be a part of Legal & General Group Plc., which has been one of the world’s leading multinational financial services companies since 1836. Headquartered in London, the firm has over $1.7 trillion in total assets under management.
Legal & General America’s insurance products are sold in all 50 states, including D.C., through our companies, Banner Life Insurance Company and William Penn Life Insurance Company of New York.
Although we offer both term and permanent policies, no other national life insurer offers more term life options than we do. We take a holistic approach to life insurance, honoring our commitment to delivering high-quality products with outstanding service at affordable prices. And, our partnership with more than 150,000 agents around the country helps you customize a policy to fit your needs — regardless of where you are on your financial journey.
Six lawyers founded Legal & General in June of 1836. From the early days in London to our overseas expansion in 1981, our long history of issuing insurance shows how credible and stable we have been through decades of economic change.
We are one of three Legal & General businesses in the US, alongside Legal & General Retirement America and Legal & General Investment Management America.
