A legacy of service
In 1947, our parent company, AFBA emerged from the basement of the Pentagon* to solve a critical need in support of the military. More than 75 years later, our commitment remains core to everything we do. Founded to provide military members with a death benefit when no one else would, we continue to embrace our mission and deliver benefits tailored to the real-life needs of all who serve today, including those who work in our cities and towns in schools, grocery stores, medical centers, and other places that keep our communities vibrant. Providing protection to all those we serve, we ensure life insurance and other benefits are available to all, no matter what.
As a related enterprise to the non-profit AFBA, 5Star Life was founded in service and commitment to those who serve, from underwriting benefits for military and first responder families to providing coverage to the employees that keep our communities running.
5Star Life’s commitment to our communities – rather than the bottom line – drives our business. 5Star Life is AFBA’s principal underwriter for member insurance products, underpinning AFBA’s support of our country’s armed forces and first responders.
