Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Protecting Your Health and Well-being

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

At Bankers Life, the health and safety of our associates, agents, customers and partners is our priority, while continuing to provide reliable service and support to our policyholders. In response to the worldwide coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are following the recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and local departments of public health.

We're here to help.

We realize this is a difficult and uncertain time, and we are committed to getting through this together. We continue to maintain normal business operations. However, as we transition our associates to work remotely, you may experience some longer than normal wait times. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we work to ensure uninterrupted service to help answer any questions you may have about your policies, accounts and coverage that are critical during this unprecedented time. Remember that most questions can be answered on our websites and we encourage you to register with your account information for the fastest possible source of information at my.bankerslife.com. Here are some ways you can get help from us:

  • Contact your agent with questions or for assistance with your policy.
  • Speak with your registered investment representative with questions regarding recent market volatility and what it means for you.
  • Register and review your account online at my.bankerslife.com.
