About the Company
National Western Life Insurance Company is a life insurance company, chartered in the State of Colorado in 1956, and doing business in forty-nine states, the District of Columbia and four U.S. territories or possessions. It is also licensed in Haiti and accepts applications from and issues policies to non-U.S. residents. National Western operates within segments organized along product types and geographic marketing areas. These operating segments include domestic life insurance, international life insurance, and annuities.

Domestic Life Insurance Operations
The Company's domestic life insurance operations concentrate marketing efforts on federal employees, seniors, and specific employee groups in private industry, as well as individual sales. The products marketed are universal life insurance and traditional life insurance, which includes both term and whole life products. National Western markets and distributes its domestic products primarily through independent agents and brokers and independent marketing organizations (IMOs). The IMOs also assist the Company in recruiting, contracting, and managing agents as well as providing additional financial resources for product marketing. Geographically, the domestic life insurance operations market products in most of the United States, which encompasses 49 states and the District of Columbia. The Company does not conduct business in the state of New York.

International Life Insurance Operations
The Company's international life insurance operations focus on foreign nationals in upper socioeconomic classes with substantial financial resources. Issuing policies to residents in countries in these different regions provides diversification that helps to minimize large fluctuations that could arise due to various economic, political, and competitive pressures that may occur from one country to another. Products issued to international residents are almost entirely universal life and traditional life insurance products. The Company minimizes exposure to foreign currency risks, as almost all foreign policies require payment of premiums and claims in United States dollars. International production is from independent contractor broker-agents, many of whom have been submitting policy applications to National Western for 20 or more years.

Annuity Operations
The Company's annuity operations are almost exclusively in the United States. Like the Company's domestic life insurance operations, annuities are marketed in 49 states and the District of Columbia using independent agents, brokers, and independent marketing organizations (IMOs). For most of these organizations, annuity sales are much more significant than life insurance sales and are the primary focus of their business operations. Although some of the Company's annuities and investment contracts are available to the international market, current sales are small relative to total annuity sales. Annuities sold include single and flexible premium deferred annuities, single premium immediate annuities, and equity-indexed annuities. These products can be tax qualified or nonqualified annuities.
