Northwestern Mutual will
share its success with its policy owners in 2015 through
an estimated $5.5 billion dividend payout. It will be a
record payout for the financial security leader and is
expected to exceed its estimated 2014 payout by $300
While about 90 percent of the $5.5 billion payout will
be paid on whole life insurance, Northwestern Mutual
also expects to pay record dividends on several other
product lines. This includes $320 million on disability
insurance, $150 million on term life insurance and $105
million on variable life insurance.
In addition, Northwestern Mutual will pay $45 million on
its annuity product line, including its new suite of
Portfolio Income Annuities.
In 2015, the company's dividend scale interest rate on
un-borrowed funds for most traditional permanent life
insurance will be 5.60 percent.
