A message from our President

New look, same mission
Welcome to the new 5Star Life Insurance Company (5Star Life) website! Our overarching goal was to improve your experience, and as you peruse through the site, you will notice many changes: new content, intuitive navigation, and an enhanced support section.

Throughout this project, one thing has not changed: our mission. 5Star Life is proud of our unique dual purpose. First, we promote the Armed Forces Benefit Association’s (AFBA) mission by underwriting its members’ benefits protecting those who serve, defend, and protect our country – military, National Guard, first responders, government employees and contractors. In parallel to that noble purpose, we serve strategically aligned markets – delivering benefits for those who keep our communities running and thriving.

Founded in 1996 to provide coverage tailored to the unique needs of service life, I encourage you to review the timeline below showing our growth and evolution in the employer group and worksite benefits markets. Today, 5Star Life enjoys financial strength and stability ensuring we will be here when our customers need us.
