Additional Information: 

American Income Life Insurance Company, or AIL, provides supplemental life insurance to labor unions, credit unions, and associations. The company was founded in 1951 and originally sold low-cost hospital insurance plans. In 1961 they began providing insurance to members of labor unions and their families, as well as contributing to strike funds, waiving payment of premiums during authorized strikes, and developing a college scholarship program for children of union members. 

In 1973, the AFL-CIO granted AIL an official designation as a Union Label company. It was one of only two insurance companies in the entire United States with the official Union Label.
