Make a Difference
MIB was founded in 1902 by a group of life insurance companies with a desire to create an industry wide database of life insurance and other products. The goal was to share information as a way to protect applicants, insurers, and policyholders from omissions and fraud that prevented the sound and equitable underwriting of life insurance and other products.
Today we embrace that legacy and continue to facilitate fraud detection and underwriting risk assessment. At the same time, we are evolving our company and introducing new services to address the digital revolution that is transforming our industry, including the way products are underwritten and how insurance companies engage with their clients and advisors.
Owned by our members who represent the leading insurance companies in North America, we are fully aligned with and committed to the success of the life insurance industry. We have earned our reputation as the industry’s most trusted and secure partner for data, insights and digital solutions that support underwriting and actuarial decision making. With our deep industry connections and sole focus on improving the insurance industry, we are uniquely positioned to provide data-driven solutions that address common industry challenges.
We are focused on making a difference both in the industry we serve and in our communities where our associates live and work.
Our organized community service activities are led by a group of associates who are a part of our community service club. Activities are held consistently throughout the year, span the many communities where our associates live and work, and include volunteering for food kitchens, conducting clothing drives and organizing teams for walk-a-thons. Regardless of work location, the team remains active in need-based donations for a local homeless shelter, holiday gift drives and collecting used cell phones for soldiers.
MIB is proud to be a founding member and serve on the board of the Insurance Industry Charitable Foundation (IICF) Life Division, a philanthropic organization focused exclusively on the life and wealth management segment of the insurance industry.
Members of MIB Group, Inc. have exclusive access to our Code Solutions portfolio. These solutions deliver unique application data and insights to facilitate underwriting risk and fraud detection.
