Mutual of Omaha Celebrating 115 Years

Helping People Protect What Matters Most for 115 Years

March 05, 2024

Today marks Mutual of Omaha’s 115th anniversary. On this day in 1909, Dr. C.C. Criss acquired the charter of Mutual Benefit Health and Accident Association, along with his wife, Mabel, and his brother, Neil. The Criss family had a vision to offer affordable, simplified insurance policies that helped protect policyholders from financial loss. They reached new customers who had previously been underserved by the insurance industry. And they backed their policies with superior customer service.

Those same founding ideals remain hallmarks of our noble purpose today. The Criss family’s legacy has been carried on by tens of thousands of associates over 115 years, helping Mutual of Omaha grow into a highly rated, Fortune 500 insurance leader.
