Ratings reflect current independent opinions of the financial capacity of an insurance organization to meet the obligations of its insurance policies and contracts in accordance with their terms.  They are based on comprehensive quantitative and qualitative evaluations of the company and its management strategy.  The rating agencies do not provide ratings as a recommendation to purchase insurance or annuities. The ratings are not a warranty of an insurer's current or future ability to meet its contractual obligations.

Ratings may be changed, suspended, or withdrawn at any time.  For the most current ratings view the full rating reports on American National’s Internet sites at www.anico.com and www.anicony.com.
