Our 125-Year Story of Strength, Innovation and Excellence
Eleven visionary men with $11 pooled their money in the middle of an ice cream table in an East Topeka drugstore to create the Knights and Ladies of Security, which was officially chartered on Feb. 22, 1892. Through wars and natural disasters, epidemics and economic upheavals, the company has distinguished itself through the decades as a nationally recognized pioneer in financial performance, product and program innovation, customer service and employment practices. From its inception when assets could have been easily contained in a child’s bank, Security Benefit has evolved into a leader in the U.S. retirement market with assets under management reaching $35 billion.* During its 125-year history, the company has changed its name, but its Topeka, Kansas, location and commitment to its clients across the country have remained constant.
