In 1988, the company became Ameritas to reflect its broadening product line and expanding national scope. Today, Ameritas offers variable insurance products, security and investment products, dental insurance, life insurance and annuity products.

Ameritas Life Insurance Says

Ameritas offers universal and variable universal life insurance plans.  Universal life insurance pays death benefits to the named beneficiary after the insured’s death.  These policies provide flexibility in premium amount and benefits as well as market rates of interest on cash value accounts and tax deferred accumulation. Variable universal life is similar to universal life insurance plans — except  variable allows the policyholder to have greater control of the cash value account. People can directly invest the cash accumulation in a variety of investments such as money market, stock and bond funds.
