The life insurance industry is broken up between annuities, long term care, disability, and accidental death coverage by group, individual, and credit for debt left behind after your death. Individual life insurance policies account for more than half of the life insurance market at this point in time. Demand for life insurance is primarily dependent on the economy and demographics. Smaller life insurance organizations must focus on specialized services and communities to compete successfully with other major US companies such as AIG and Aetna. The top 50 firms in this industry generate more than 90% of the revenue. A series of life insurance company names are from throughout the United States.
