    Josh Millang founded Millang Financial Group, LLC in West Des Moines, Iowa, in 2008. The agency is driven by the mission to recruit and develop superior professionals in the financial services industry.

    Josh and the members of Millang Financial Group acknowledge and appreciate the support received from Kansas City Life’s Home Office associates on a daily basis - especially when it comes to their product offerings.

    “One of the keys of us partnering with Kansas City Life was that it had to be a great product fit,” says Josh. “They’re not the first to get into any market and they’re not the first to get out of any market. When they decide to get into a product space, they get into it and they mean it. They manufacture competitive products and they stand behind them with their interest rate integrity.”

  • “Kansas City Life is a family business with an agent-friendly culture. You can count on them for a consistent business plan built around its general agencies.”

    General Agent John Costa of Agent Services of America in Venice, Fla., leads his agency comprised of more than 40 agents to provide financial solutions for its clients. John joined Kansas City Life Insurance Company in 2006 with more than 32 years of experience in the life insurance and financial services industry.

    “Clearly what I feel makes Kansas City Life different is they’re a fourth generation family business with an agent-friendly culture,” says John. “Other life insurance companies change their management team, even change their CEO when you least expect it, thereby changing their culture and business plan. With Kansas City Life you can expect a consistent business plan built around its general agencies.”

  • “I would recommend Kansas City Life to any general agent. They’re a Midwest company and their handshake is their bond. They’ve always kept their word and that’s very important to us.”

    Thomas and the agency share a focus of building strong producers and providing financial security for their clients, and that vision has helped them reach the number one spot with the Company.

    “I partnered with Kansas City Life approximately five years ago and our whole group is excited to be a part of this great Company,” says Thomas. “Kansas City Life has many products and services that other companies just don’t offer. They’re on the cutting edge with their products and services, which in my opinion are No. 1 in the industry. We truly feel a part of the family and we couldn’t be happier.”

The Kansas City Life people are so nice, courteous and helpful no matter what the request might be. In 35 years with this company I cannot recall a single person ever being short or unkind to me.”

    “One of the reasons I continue to do business with Kansas City Life is the rich, family-like relationship I enjoy with them. It’s a true partnership and they really care about me as a producer and a General Agent. Kansas City Life’s support – whether marketing or training – always helps me get things done. It’s amazing but I don’t think ‘no’ is in their vocabulary.”
