Our History

Named after Andrew Jackson, the seventh president of the United States, Jackson National Life Insurance Company® (Jackson®) first opened for business in 1961 as a small family-owned company. As we have evolved over the years into a successful multi-billion dollar organization, we have lived by the mantra that no matter where our journey takes us, we will never forget where we came from. We are just as proud of our heritage as we are of what we have become.

By combining the responsiveness and personal attention of a family business with the resources and strength of a large corporation, we are able to provide a unique experience to our customers and partners.
