Great Western Insurance Company

Great Western Insurance Company is an Ogden, Utah based company writing life insurance and annuities specifically to fund pre-arranged funeral plans. Great Western has been providing funeral home owners and pre-need sales organizations with exceptional service and superior marketing support since 1983.Great Western was founded by John E. Lindquist, owner of Lindquist Mortuaries & Cemeteries, a family business of five generations. This funeral home background provides the insight necessary for the simplest and most effective policy design available, as well as the pre-need marketing support to go with it. Great Western is licensed in 46 states and the District of Columbia. The company is continually ranked as one of the top pre-need insurance companies in the United States. Great Western’s financial strength has always come from a dedicated focus on the funeral profession. Because of this, Great Western knows the financial needs of funeral homes, the families they serve, and understands the responsibility of being a trusted financial steward. As a result, all investments are professionally managed under diversified and conservative guidelines. Great Western’s Surplus to Liability Ratio is among the highest in the industry, exceeding the margin of assets over liabilities and excess surplus standards that are averaged by America’s 25 largest life insurance companies.
