Woman’s Life Insurance Society

Celebrating 125 Years – A Rich Heritage of Caring

There is nothing unusual about success. I only carried out my idea. Too many people fail because they are afraid of other people’s opinions. This is especially true of women. The only thing to do is go ahead.

— Bina West, founder of Woman’s Life Insurance Society

In 1892 Bina M. West, a young school teacher, made it her life’s work to provide women with the opportunity to achieve financial security for themselves and their families. As a result, she founded one of the first organizations in the United States to offer life insurance to women. Today, Woman’s Life remains committed to her vision, helping women prepare for a secure financial future with life insurance and annuity products, while also providing meaningful support for their community outreach activities.
