Make your next mission Northwestern Mutual


Putting our clients first since day one.


The year was 1859. An ox and a passenger train collided just outside Johnson Creek, Wisconsin, and two of our policy owners were killed in the wreck. The claims totaled $3,500, which was $1,500 more than our two-year-old company had on hand. Then President Samuel S. Daggett and his fellow trustees personally borrowed the money to settle the claims, proving that our dedication to our clients is as old as the company itself.


We're among the strongest.


Financial strength isn't something you claim; it's established by hard numbers. Our financial statements show that we maintain exceptional financial health. But don't just take our word for it. Northwestern Mutual has earned the highest financial strength rating awarded to any U.S. life insurer by all the major rating agencies.
