In New York, the Western National series of annuities is issued and underwritten by The United States Life Insurance Company in the City of New York (US Life). US Life is financially strong with $24.1 billion* in total admitted assets as of March 31, 2013 which includes more than $2.1 billion* of total adjusted capital.

The philosophy of US Life is to manage its investment portfolio prudently and conservatively. Emphasis is on the return of principal (security) as well as the return on principal (yield). Investment decisions are based on asset/liability management considerations and long-term value analysis, not on possible short-term gains arising from market interest rate changes. With this strategy, we have been able to protect our contract holders with strong asset quality and high asset liquidity.
