Transamerica Life Insurance Named Fastest Growing Voluntary Benefits Carrier


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – June 13, 2013 – The annual U.S. Worksite/Voluntary Sales Report produced by marketing advisory firm Eastbridge Consulting Group, Inc.* identified Transamerica Life Insurance Company-which markets voluntary benefits through its Transamerica Employee Benefits business unit-as the fastest growing company based on voluntary sales for 2012 among large companies. This recognition comes as Transamerica Employee Benefits is expanding its national sales team in key growth markets across the U.S.

“The need for voluntary benefits is rising significantly, particularly supplemental health, due to the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and as open enrollment nears. The growth that we have experienced is a direct result of the efforts of our employees, our brokers, and our customers around the country. We are responsive to the needs of the marketplace, and their input continues to push Transamerica to deliver innovative product and administrative solutions,” said Randy Clarkson, president of Transamerica Employee Benefits. “This recognition is a significant accomplishment for Transamerica Employee Benefits and we hope to continue our track record of industry leadership.”

This is Transamerica Employee Benefits’ third consecutive year achieving sales above industry averages. The business unit has had sales increases of 9 percent, 28 percent and 15.3 percent in 2010, 2011 and 2012, respectively.
