    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.”

  • “If you’re looking for a home, if you’re looking to be a part of a great family, Kansas City Life is the place.”

    “I’ve been with Kansas City Life since 1975 but our agency has been with the Company since 1911,” says Shelley. “The reason why we have stayed with Kansas City Life so long is because of the relationships we have with all of the people at the Home Office. If you want somebody at the Home Office to know your name, Kansas City Life is the place to be. They know who you are, they want to support you and they do it with a smile.”

    Simmons Insurance Group
    P.O. Box 808
    Hermiston, OR 97838

    Simmons Insurance Group in Hermiston, Ore., was founded in 1974 by General Agent Larry Simmons, LUTCF™. That same year, Larry recruited his high school football teammate, Kelly Bissinger, LUTCF, to join the agency and together they have developed a 40-year partnership with Kansas City Life. Larry’s son, Co-General Agent Justin Simmons, is continuing the standard of excellence as Simmons Insurance Group is passed down the family lineage. Since its inception, the agency has been awarded with Kansas City Life’s most esteemed agency honor, the Agency Building Award, six times and currently holds the record for the most honors.
    Simmons Insurance Group believes their business is about building relationships and providing clients with a strong financial future.

    “I’d recommend Kansas City Life to another General Agent because they allow us to use our systems and they don’t force their ideas and the way they do business on us” says Justin. “They look at us individually and say, ‘where do you want to go and how do we help you get there.’ They also have great agent and general agent payouts, and their incentive trips are amazing - you can travel all around the world just by making a living, which is hard to do at other companies.”
