Mutual Companies offer dividend paying whole life insurance, a/k/a participating life insurance. See https://www.insuranceandestates.com/participating-life-insurance/
Mutual life insurance companies, a/k/a “Mutuals,” have no shareholders. Instead, the policy owners are members of the corporation controlling the insurer, which grants them membership rights. Mutual insurance companies conduct business seeking to maximize the value for policy owners.
Stock life insurance companies are beholden to shareholders, like any other corporation, and must seek to maximize shareholder value, even if that comes at the policy owner’s expense.
The Rights of a Mutual Company Policyholder Include:
-Participation in Corporate Governance
-Receipt of Any Outstanding Value if Liquidation or Demutualization
-Operate in the Best Interest of Policyholders
-Ability to Launch Legal Action Against Directors and Officers if there is a Violation of Fiduciary Duties
