A quick way to get up to speed on who we are, what we do and where we're active.

Our history:
CNO was incorporated in 1979, began operations in 1982, became a public company as Conseco, Inc. in 1985 and re-branded to CNO Financial Group, Inc. in 2010.

As this group moves toward retirement, we stand ready to serve them with products designed to meet their specific needs.
