The American Armed Forces Mutual Aid Association (AAFMAA) is the longest-standing not-for-profit association that empowers military families with affordable financial solutions including, life insurance, investment management, residential mortgages, and survivor assistance.
AAFMAA was established on January 13, 1879 after officials in the War Department saw the need for an Association to take care of fellow Soldiers in the aftermath of the Battle of Little Big Horn— “Custer’s Last Stand.” Since then, AAFMAA has continuously provided members low-cost life insurance and superlative survivor assistance. Supporting the military family doesn’t end at the death of the military member, AAFMAA continues to support the deceased member’s spouse and minor children by informing them of all new or untapped Government benefits.
In addition to offering outstanding life insurance products and unmatched member benefits, AAFMAA provides Financial Planning, Investment Management and Trust Administration Services to its members. Over 137 years later, AAFMAA continues to deliver the financial services needed today “to aid the families of the deceased members in a prompt, simple and substantial manner” tomorrow.
