Primerica Review | What is Primerica?
Originally known as A.L. Williams, Primerica is a financial services company focused on helping main street America to have financial independence.
Who Founded Primerica?
Primerica was founded by Art Williams, a football coach from Georgia. He had not originally intended to go to into the financial services industry, but after an injustice in his family, he wanted to make things right for other main street Americans.
Why Was Primerica Founded?
In , Art Williams’ father passed away unexpectedly, and his mother was left to find an income to care for his brothers. Before death, his father was sold a cash value life insurance policy, and they received $10,000 as the death benefit. Even at that time, $10,000 wasn’t enough income replacement for his mother to support his brothers, so they were left struggling financially.
Later in life, Art learned about term life insurance. He discovered how much more of a death benefit his father could have recieved if they had taken the amount they were paying for their cash value premium, and applied that to a term policy.
He also discovered that his mother and father would’ve been better off if they had put the money in a high yielding savings account versus storing it inside of a cash value life insurance policy. As a result, he sought out to educate more people about term versus cash value and added fuel to the crusade “Buy term and invest the difference”.

The services are in high demand, and therefore, there’s lots of room for you to grow a client base, and build a steady stream of income.
Our Verdict: Is Primerica the Right Fit for you?
If you’re considering whether to become a Primerica client, we highly recommend them. They’ve changed the lives of millions of people in a positive way; guiding families closer to financial freedom. We’d recommend you find an office, like Team Building Wealthy Families that offers the full depth of Primerica services: insurance, investments, mortgages, etc.
If you’re considering whether to become a Primerica representative, we recommend it but not to everyone. The representative position suits those who are entrepreneurial in nature; those who want an additional income outside of work, or those who want to run a business full-time.
If you’re accustom to being given instruction or quotas, or if you’re not an ambitious person, becoming a Primerica representative may not be a good fit. For more information or to interview as a Primerica representative, set up your appointment over at team Building Wealthy Families here.
