About Midland National®



Midland National is a leading provider of annuities and life insurance.

Today, Midland National is one of the leading insurance companies in the U.S. Our proud history dates back more than 100 years when we were founded in 1906 under the name Dakota Mutual Life Insurance Company. The company grew steadily during the early years, even as it faced the economic challenges of World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II. In 1925, the company assumed its current name - Midland National® Life Insurance Company. In 2006, Midland National celebrated its 100th year of providing quality service, financial strength, and life insurance and annuity products that are proven performers. With our continued emphasis on providing quality products and excellent service, Midland National looks forward to celebrating many more milestones in the years to come.
