Modern Woodmen of America, Rock Island, Illinois, has made the list of The World’s Best Life Insurance Companies 2023 according to Forbes.

The list was compiled by Forbes with the help of market research firm Statista. More than 30,000 people in 15 countries were surveyed. Participants who held a life insurance policy in the past three years were asked if they would recommend their insurance company to others. Companies were also rated on criteria such as advice employees offered, customer service, price performance, transparency and damage service.

There are more than 700 life insurers in the United States, and out of the 25 U.S. companies that made the list, Modern Woodmen ranked No. 15. This achievement would not have been possible without our financial representatives and the members and communities they serve across the nation.

“We’re honored by this recognition and excited about the future,” says Modern Woodmen President and CEO Jerry Lyphout. “We’re making strides each day to improve the quality of life for our members, and we’re committed to helping meet our members’ needs now and for generations to come.”
