Mutual Life Insurance Company

The HTML to link to this page
 

A Mutual life insurance company is a life insurance provider that is owned by its policy holders. Unlike a mutual life insurance company, a stock life insurance company is owned by its shareholders. Apart from its ownership structure, a mutual life insurance company functions quite similarly to other insurance firms. Much like its counterparts, a mutual life insurance company may offer comparable forms of life insurance, including term, whole-life, adjustable, and other indemnity contracts. Similarly, a mutual life insurance company may also offer a variety of investment service to supplement its life insurance products. Some policy owners may prefer a mutual life insurance company, arguing that unlike a stock life insurance company that may cater to its shareholders, a mutual life insurance company will always make policy holders its top priority.
