May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM), an industry-wide event coordinated by the LIFE* Foundation.

Your income is one of your most valuable assets and a major component to  quality of life for you and your family.

February is a month to show love. While cards and candy are fun and a great way to show your family you care, consider a more enduring gift of love.  Life Insurance is a gift that will last.  You are showing your family that you care enough about them to plan for their wellbeing even after you are gone.

With the LIFE* Foundation’s nationwide “Insure Your Love” campaign, you can learn more about helping protect those you love with life insurance.

“We give people the opportunity to express their love for the special people in their lives through the life insurance products we sell.

Illinois Mutual kicked off our annual wall calendar photo contest in early 2012. To celebrate what matters most in life, we asked our agents, policyowners, employees and retirees to send us photos that best captured the 2013 calendar theme “Live Your Dream.” From family, friends and pets to breathtaking scenery and personal triumphs, each month reminds us that there are many ways to live a dream, every day.

Thirty-seven winning photos were chosen from the inspiring entries we received – one grand prize cover winner and three winning photos for each month. Continuing our tradition of giving back and in appreciation to the winners who helped us create such a memorable timepiece, each winner’s charity of choice received a donation from Illinois Mutual on their behalf.

Congratulations to everyone who submitted winning photographs and thanks to all who participated!
