The coronavirus pandemic has upended the way AmeriLife does business and the way our associates go about their lives. As a company, AmeriLife recognized that the novel coronavirus outbreak was an emergency like no other we have faced before.

The center of the company’s planning has always been – and will always remain – the safety and well-being of all our associates.

The executive team wants to thank all associates for their cooperation and flexibility during this unprecedented time, and their continued commitment to our mission – to provide peace of mind and help people live longer, healthier lives.

Associates have worked long hours facilitating changes to the way we do business, and continuing to ensure both agents’ and consumers’ needs are met.

While we confront the coronavirus pandemic together, it is a good reminder to review the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on what to do if you are sick.

  • If you are sick, wear a facemask
  • Cover you coughs and sneezes
  • Clean your hands often
  • Avoid sharing personal items, such as dishes, drinking glasses, cups, utensils, towels or bedding
