Leavenworth, Kansas (PRWEB) February 07, 2012
This month, Armed Forces Insurance has reached a significant milestone in its history: 125 years of service to its members.
While the country has changed a great deal since the organization was founded, AFI’s commitment to satisfying the unique demands of the military lifestyle has never wavered, according to Kurt Seelbach, President and Chief Executive Officer.
“AFI’s long and successful history is a testament to our team’s ability to provide insurance products and personalized customer service that address the specific challenges military families face,” Seelbach said.
AFI’s success in this mission is clearly illustrated by the loyalty of its member base. Of the more than 37,000 policyholders who have retained a membership for at least 25 years, about 15,500 of those have been with AFI for more than 40 years. AFI has provided property and casualty insurance to some of the most notable figures among military leadership. Additionally, the organization heads into its 125th year with an A- (Excellent) rating from insurance industry credit rating agency A. M. Best — a rating level it has consistently maintained for decades.
AFI’s most recent years have been marked by ongoing sponsorships that support military causes. Today AFI sponsors the “Military Spouse of the Year” award, presented by Military Spouse Magazine; the Bell Helicopter Armed Forces Bowl; the Best Ranger Competition’s Rippetoe Award; and Sky Ball, an event that raises over $1.5 million dollars every year in support of military families. AFI also supports numerous military appreciation events that recognize men and women in uniform for service to their country.
“We’ve provided competitive rates, easy access to critical information and rapid response to policyholders’ needs for 125 years. This is an incredible quasquicentennial anniversary. With a strong focus on risk management and an experienced team of senior insurance executives in place, AFI remains well positioned to continue to deliver personalized service for many years into the future,” said Lieutenant General Garry L. Parks (U.S. Marine Corps, Ret.), Chairman of the Board of Directors.
