Primerica Life Insurance Co. Ratings
The most recent financial ratings from the nation’s leading insurance rating service, A.M. Best, indicate a “A+” (Superior) rating. The issuer credit ratings have downgraded from an “aa” to “aa-” rating. The degradation in rating is due in part to the recent financial profile of Citigroup, Primerica’s owner at the time of the rating review.
Another reason for Primerica’s lower rating is because A.M. Best believes Primerica’s use of part-time agents increases its exposure to market conduct risks. These ratings are reflected in the most recent report from A.M. Best and are accurate as of May 2009. Standard & Poor gives Primerica a long-term credit rating of “AA,” making it a reliable borrower.
