OneAmerica Reaches New Level With All-Time High in Sales, Benefits Paid

Sales up 9 Percent; Tripled Over Last 10 Years

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwired - April 01, 2015) - The companies of OneAmerica announced another record-breaking year in 2014 with all-time highs in sales, benefits paid, assets, premiums and capital.
