SFLIC’s mission is to be the “premier life insurance company in our markets with a deserved reputation for excellence in serving our policyowners.” SFLIC is committed to the policyowners and the funeral profession that serves them. Our commitment is to do our best - and then do better. This is our goal, our mission, our challenge.

Our story began in 1960...

When three leading Arkansas funeral directors wanted to further meet the needs they were seeing in families in their communities. To help “their families” more easily cope with funeral and other final expenses, they considered forming a life insurance company that could provide small face amount policies. From the first meeting, the group of funeral directors soon grew to 40, and Selected Funeral and Life Insurance Company was born. SFLIC’s purpose, providing for this unique need and niche of the insurance market, is what SFLIC has been doing ever since.

Today, SFLIC, with corporate offices located in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas, is a leading insurer specializing in final expense and pre-need life insurance. We understand insurance and its value for our clientele. We are also proud that SFLIC was an early innovator in advanced funeral planning insurance.

SFLIC is well recognized for its strong leadership in serving the funeral profession and its solid financial foundation. We are proud that today SFLIC’s Board of Directors continues to reflect leading funeral homes and experienced insurance management. We are focused on the funeral profession’s interests and needs and actively participate in numerous funeral service events throughout the year.

The company has a home office of approximately 50 staff members, and currently conducts business in Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Mississippi where we conduct business as Superior Funeral and Life Insurance Company. Our historical home office building is a strong visual reminder of our solid foundation and legacy of excellence. Our dynamic daily operations help fuel our enthusiasm for the future.

SFLIC has excellent and innovative products and services, modern technology capabilities for the digital world, and a home office support of dedicated professionals.

Our mission drives us to look for ways to maximize value to our clientele, our affiliates, and their customers and to support these important relationships.

We hope our SFLIC story helps you to know our company better - the SFLIC organization, its history, and mission for excellence in service as we build for the future.

We look forward to our next opportunity to serve you!
