KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Kansas City based Assurant Employee Benefits, a national carrier of group life, disability and dental coverage, today announces it will reinsure the majority of Shenandoah Life Insurance Company's group insurance business, subject to approval by the State Corporation Commission of the Commonwealth of Virginia.

"This agreement reflects our commitment to growing our business, and I hope it instills confidence in Shenandoah Life brokers and policyholders that we are backing their business," said John Roberts, president and CEO of Assurant Employee Benefits. "As a part of Assurant, Inc., we offer the stability and financial strength of a Fortune 500 company."

On February 12, 2009, the State Corporation Commission of the Commonwealth of Virginia was appointed as the Receiver of Shenandoah Life Insurance Company.
