Who Owns Globe Life and Accident Insurance Company?

Who Owns Globe Life and Accident Insurance Company?

When it comes to life insurance companies, customers have no shortage of options. Whether you’re looking at a household name or a smaller company, it helps to know a little about a company’s history and what its goals and standards are. Here’s a little info about Globe Life And Accident Insurance Company and its parent Company, Globe Life Inc.


Globe Life Inc. is the parent Company of several insurance subsidiaries with acquisitions that date back to 1980.

Globe Life And Accident Insurance Company was founded in 1951. Since that time, it has been committed to providing quality, affordable insurance policies to working class families, giving them the ability to face the unexpected from a position of strength. It was created after two men, Ralph Reece and John Singletary, had an idea of starting a business and getting approved for loans totaling $60,000. Their venture began when they determined their agency would market inexpensive but dependable life insurance protection to Americans who were living in rural areas. They found success with a reputation of fairness and integrity, and during the span of 50 years, Globe Life And Accident Insurance Company grew into a position of prominence within the insurance industry.

In 1980, Globe Life And Accident Insurance Company was acquired by Liberty National Life Insurance Company and the holding company known as Torchmark Corporation (now Globe Life Inc.).

Torchmark Corporation Becomes Globe Life Inc.

On August 8, 2019, Torchmark Corporation was officially renamed Globe Life Inc. The name change was part of a brand alignment strategy that will enhance the Company’s ability to build name recognition with prospective customers and agent recruits through the use of a single brand.

While the individual insurance subsidiaries owned by Globe Life Inc. will continue to exist as legal entities and retain their unique cultures and market niches, they will all eventually use and take advantage of the Globe Life brand.
