ABILENE, TX– Funeral Directors Life Insurance Company (FDLIC) is honored to be named to the 2013 Ward’s 50® list of top performing life‐health insurance companies. This marks the third consecutive year that FDLIC has been recognized by the Ward Group.

The Ward Group is a leading provider of benchmarking and best practices services for the insurance industry. The Ward Group conducts an annual analysis of nearly 800 life-health insurance companies domiciled in the United States, identifying the top performing companies which are named to the Ward’s 50 list. “Each company has passed all safety and consistency screens and achieved superior performance over the five years analyzed,” stated a press release from the Ward Group.

To be named to the list, a company must pass the initial safety and consistency tests, which include having over $50 million in surplus for the years being analyzed; adjusted net income in at least four of the last five years; and compound annual growth in premiums between -10% and +40%. In addition, the company is evaluated based on results of operations and key performance standards. Of the companies that pass these tests, only the top 50 performers make the list.
