About GBU Financial Life

GBU Financial Life (GBU) is a member-owned, not-for-profit fraternal benefit society founded in Pittsburgh in 1892. Formed to provide financial security and benefits to its members, GBU is non-denominational and has grown to be a profitable life and annuity insurer with over $3 billion in assets.

GBU partners with a network of 1,600 agents to market and distribute a variety of life and retirement products, including term life, permanent life and fixed annuities.

GBU stays true to its fraternal roots, commitment and mission by serving as an active supporter and contributor to well-known charities such as American Cancer Society, American Red Cross and military-focused initiatives, among others. We are also heavily involved in sponsoring various programs such as scholarships, grants and other fraternal programs for our members. Giving back to the community and integrating the membership into service-oriented activities is an important part of GBU’s fabric and culture.

GBU’s office and main operations are based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We employ a staff of around 70 loyal, tenured employees. GBU is financially strong and recently earned an “A-” A.M. Best rating due to our thoughtful investment and long-term financial growth approach. Controlled growth and long-term financial management and investing are core to the company’s success in achieving the strong financial position we have today.
