SFLIC's goal to earn a deserved reputation for excellence in products and service has been a driving force for the company.  A key differentiator for SFLIC of special interest to affiliated funeral homes is the range of products to meet both sides of the funeral home's market.  SFLIC's portfolio of final expense advanced planning/preneed and whole life products equips the funeral home to meet the needs of most all members of the families they serve.  On the distribution side of the business, another key differentiator of SFLIC is the broad marketing support and professional services affiliated funeral homes are provided by the Sales Development and Home Office team.

SFLIC's mission is to be a premier life insurance company serving the funeral profession.  We invite visitors to our website at www.sflic.net and look forward to our next opportunity to serve.

Quality - Value - Support Those three words are the reason so many funeral homes have made the switch to Sich, and many more are joining our family every day.  It's not just that our caskets are painstakingly handcrafted and flawlessly finished, nor that they offer “tier-one” quality at lower-than-low “import” prices, all contract-free; it's also about our funeral home customers getting the company support they need in terms of accessibility, expedience and accountability.  Now, all brought even closer to home thanks to our (and your) new Sich Warehouse.
