FORT WORTH, Texas – It just keeps getting better. National Farm Life Insurance Co. continues its 75th anniversary celebration in 2022, kicking off the new year with an all-time-high number of policies issued, up 10.75 percent.

That’s significant considering that NFLIC’s sole focus is the Lonestar state, a concept that company leaders refer to as home-grown growth.

“These are exciting times at National Farm Life as more and more people turn to us to protect their families and build strong financial foundations for the future,” said NFLIC President Kyle McGregor, “Our record market share is a testament to 75 years of unparalleled service, integrity, loyalty and security.”

When William C. Young founded NFLIC in 1946 in the Fort Worth Historic Stockyards, he had two non-negotiables. Policyholders would have peace of mind in an uncertain world, and they’d share company profits through dividends on whole life policies.

The only things that have changed in the last 75 years are the number of policies (71,191) and independent agents (more than 1,300), increased financial services and a new location atop a hill just a stone’s throw from one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation.

“The core values that our founder envisioned remain the bedrock of National Farm Life,” said Board Chairman J.D. “Chip” Davis. “The entire NFLIC family — office and field staff, agents, senior management and board members — are sold out to Mr. Young’s commitment to service and security and his sense of responsibility toward hardworking Texans.”

As part of NFLIC’s recent 2022 kickoff meeting, the company celebrated almost 3,000 new whole life and 886 term life policies. Premiums collected in 2021 surged ahead of previous year totals by nearly $320,000.

The hard work of five regional coordinators and their teams are behind the company’s 2021 success.

North Texas Regional Coordinator Don Hutto, an NFLIC agent since 1999, and his agents nearly doubled production in 2021 while Coordinator Jeff Havard and his team made East Texas Region history, topping their five-year production average by $100,000.

Led by Clark Fryer (Fairfield, Texas), the Central Texas group issued more than $750,000 in annual premiums in 2021, marking only the second time in NFLIC history for a region to surpass that mark.

The South Texas region, led by Alicia Rodriguez, also set a new high in annual premiums — $173,476, and the West Texas region, led by Dale Raburn, begins 2022 as home to seven of NFLIC’s top 10 agents.

“If 2021 is prologue, our future is very bright,” said Brad Coon, NFLIC senior vice president for marketing. “There’s opportunity, and there’s National Farm Life. Our personal touch is what sets us apart from other life insurance companies. We truly get to know our policyholders — their spouses, children, pets. They become part of the National Farm Life family.”

Congratulating NFLIC on its diamond anniversary, Mayor Mattie Parker told those at the 2022 kickoff meeting that the company is a vital part of Fort Worth’s storied history.

“Thank you for your contributions to this community and for growing with us,” she said.
