75 years ago, a promise to help protect was made.

There’s a lot to celebrate this year! 75 years ago, the AICPA Insurance Trust was formed to bring affordable Life Insurance to CPAs and to help them achieve financial wellness. To help accomplish this, a partnership with Aon1 and The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential)—two trusted professionals in their fields—was created.

Beginning with offering Group Life Insurance in 1947, and expanding to members directly in 1957, the AICPA Insurance Trust continues to evolve to address the ever-expanding insurance needs of members and their families.  
 
Plans and initiatives brought forward by Prudential and Aon are reviewed, approved, and monitored by a Committee of AICPA members to ensure that coverage and service remains relevant and continues to exceed expectations. For example:

  • This year’s Annual Cash Refund2 (money not used for claims, expenses, and other charges that’s distributed back to the Plan's participants) is over $75 million allocated to over 154,000 members for both Trusts combined.
  • Over 241,000 members participate in the AICPA Insurance Trust, which offers exclusive member-rates, tailored products for CPAs, and top-notch service. 
  • The AICPA Insurance Trust boasts one of the highest service scores in the industry, with a 71 Excellent Net Promoter Score for their Life insurance (the average being the 5-40 range).3
