Ameritas Financial Center Nebraska provides individuals, families and small businesses comprehensive financial planning.
Ameritas Financial Center is currently anchored in Lincoln and Omaha; one firm in two distinct locations. However, its history takes it back over one hundred years of service throughout Nebraska and neighboring states. Bankers Life of Nebraska had career agents and agencies in communities such as Norfolk, North Platte, Beatrice, Kearney, Scottsbluff, Hastings, Grand Island, Lincoln and Omaha. The Lincoln Agency dates to November of 1912 while the Omaha Agency traces back to 1922. The agencies system changed throughout the years as operations consolidated in 2002 when the Omaha agency merged with the Lincoln agency forming Ameritas Financial Center.
“Ameritas is such a strong company with a positive reputation and name recognition that is a real blessing to be a part of this organization. The ease of doing business with a local partner is a special advantage.”
– Dan Scholz
