Policyholder Information

Company Overview

Midwest Life Insurance Company was owned by Southshore Holding Corporation and domiciled in Louisiana. The company was licensed in 29 states and had an emphasis on group single premium deferred and immediate annuities for qualified and nonqualified accounts. It also offered whole life, single premium life, term insurance, modified premium whole life and individual/group major medical insurance.

The company was placed in voluntary conservatorship in April 1991 with a plan for restructuring the investment portfolio and converting mortgage loans into more marketable securities. However, the plan failed and the company was ordered into receivership a few months later. The state life and health insurance guaranty associations helped arrange for Standard Life of Indiana to assume the life and annuity policies in 1992.
