Company Overview

Franklin American Life Insurance Company was a Tennessee-based company that was acquired by the Thunor Trust (the Trust also acquired Family Guaranty Life Insurance Company, Farmer and Ranchers Life Insurance Company, First National Life Insurance Company of America, Franklin Protective Life Insurance Company, International Financial Services Life, and Old Southwest Life Insurance Company). In 1999, all the companies were placed in rehabilitation. Franklin American Life was ordered liquidated in the same year, and state life and health insurance guaranty associations helped arrange for its policies to be moved to Investors Heritage Life Insurance Company (see below).

If you have any questions, please contact your state life and health insurance guaranty association.

Policy & Claims Administration

Policies of an insolvent company are often transferred to a financially sound insurance company. If policies are not transferred to another company, the policies are continued and claims administered by either the guaranty associations or a third-party administrator (TPA) working on behalf of the associations. Please contact the company/TPA listed below or the guaranty association in your state of residence for more information about your policy.
