About Banner Life

banner life logoThe history of Banner Life Insurance Company is more than 50 years strong. Chartered in 1949 as Government Employees Life Insurance Company (GELICO), we were acquired by Legal & General Group Plc as a wholly owned subsidiary in 1981. In 1983, our name was changed to Banner Life, signifying our flagship position with Legal & General America in the United States.

Banner Life’s subsidiary, William Penn Life Insurance Company of New York, joined the corporate group in 1989. Since that time, management for both companies has been consolidated at the senior level. Banner Life Insurances’ national presence, William Penn’s nearly 40 years of agency experience and the operational synergy between the companies is a strong combination.

Banner Life Insurance Company’s products are distributed through independent life insurance agents and agencies in 48 United states and the District of Columbia.
