Company Background

The name that became synonymous with “Wild Kingdom”

With a rich history that includes creating the TV show “Wild Kingdom” and sponsoring a U.S. swim team and professional golf, the origins of Mutual of Omaha are traced back to 1909, when the company was incorporated as Mutual Benefit Health & Accident Association in Omaha, NE. The company was licensed to offer insurance in 15 states by 1920, when premiums hit more than $1 million. United Benefit Life Insurance Company, incorporated in 1926, provides life insurance, pension and annuity products for groups and individuals. By 1939, Mutual of Omaha had become licensed in all 48 states and two territories.

The 1950s were a significant decade for the company. Mutual of Omaha’s income triples during the decade. It also acquired TeleTrip Company in 1955. The addition provided 24-hour, accident protection to global travelers. That year, the company also became the first health and accident company to gain an IBM electronic data processing system.

Mutual of Omaha also became an administrator for the new Medicare Parts A & B in 1966.

United Benefit Life Insurance Company is a subsidiary of Mutual of Omaha and changed its name to United of Omaha Life Insurance Company in 1981. Mutual of Omaha offers term life insurance and permanent life insurance coverage as well as a variety of other products. Mutual of Omaha has more than 11 million members and 39,000 employer groups.
