At a time when life insurance was not available to union members, Samuel Gompers, the first and longest-serving president of the American Federation of Labor (AFL), saw the value of a union-owned insurance company. And the rest, as they say, is history.
On May 1, 1927, The Union Labor Life Insurance Company (Ullico) opened for business. Since the first group life insurance policy was issued to Federal Employees Local 105 in Washington, D.C., Ullico has stood shoulder-to-shoulder with union members and employers to ensure financial security and peace of mind.
For generations, Ullico has responded to the changing needs of working men and women. From insurance products for union members to investments that have created thousands of union jobs around the country, Ullico has been devoted to making life better for millions of Americans.
Ullico is the only labor-owned insurance and investment company, which is why union members and employers across America trust them with protecting their families, employees, businesses and investments.
ULLICO has been a steadfast supporter of the mission of the Union Label Department and has sponsored Department activities on many occasions.
