Grey House Publishing is proud to announce the 2015 Editions of Weiss Ratings' Guide to Life and Annuity Insurers. This quarterly guide is the ideal resource for accurate, unbiased ratings and data to help citizens across the U.S. choose reliable life insurance policies, annuities, and other pension plans for themselves and their families.

Many people assume their insurance companies will survive, year after year. However, prudent consumers and professionals realize that in this world of shifting risks, the solvency of insurance companies can t be taken for granted. Luckily, Weiss Ratings' Guide to Life & Annuity Insurers gives both novice and experienced insurance policy seekers the tools they need to survive in today's shifting economic market.

All of Weiss Ratings' Guides are published quarterly, utilize a clear-cut A-to-F rating system (similar to school grading systems), and contain more complete, up-to-date ratings than any of their competitors. This Spring 2015 edition of Weiss Ratings' Guide to Life & Annuity Insurers features ratings and analyses of over 1,000 life and annuity insurers (including some Blue Cross/Blue Shield plans). This is currently the only source that provides such ratings.

The Guide to Life & Annuity Insurers is divided into six main sections, preceded by an introductory section and followed by a thorough Appendix. Weiss' complete letter-grade rubric is detailed on the inside front cover an easily accessible reference for users researching companies in this Guide.

The introductory section begins by welcoming the user and laying out the mission statement, followed by a "How To Use This Guide" orientation to the book. The final components of this section are an explanation of the Financial Strength Ratings used in the book and a page of important warnings and cautions for the user to take into account when evaluating insurance providers.

Section I, an Index of Companies, is comprised of an alphabetical listing of all rated and unrated U.S life and annuity insurers, containing key rating factors and an investment portfolio analysis for all insurers. An explanation of each of the footnotes and stability factors appears at the end of this section.

Section II, Analysis of Largest Companies, features summary analyses of all rated U.S. life and annuity insurers with capital in excess of $25 million. These summaries are made up of several components and also contain graphs and charts to assist the user in understanding the data. Components of the analyses include: Financial Strength Rating, Major Rating Factors, Principal Business, and Principal Investments. Complete contact information is also listed.

Sections III and IV both deal with Recommended Companies. These are U.S. life and annuity insurers that have been awarded a Financial Strength Rating between A+ and B+. Section III lists the companies alphabetically, while Section IV organizes them by state (in which companies are licensed to do business). In Section III, listings are accompanied by complete contact information and rating. Section IV listings include Domicile State and Total Assets.

Section V contains a list of all Rated and Unrated Life and Annuity Insurers. Companies are ranked by Financial Strength Rating, and then listed alphabetically within each rating category.

Section VI, Rating Upgrades and Downgrades, identifies those companies receiving a rating change since the previous edition of this publication. Each listing has a brief summary of the change and reason for the change.

The Guide ends with an Appendix containing four sections: an article about State Guaranty Associations, details about Risk-Adjusted Capital, a list of Recent Industry Failures, and a Glossary containing the most important terms used throughout the publication.
