Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit for up to $92 million. The lawsuit accused Northwestern Mutual of failing to pay dividends on certain term life policies and using improper sales and marketing practices. The lawsuit was filed four years ago by a customer in California who said the insurer’s sales materials misled him about whether dividends would be paid on term life and disability insurance. The proposed settlement covers about 1.3 million current and 1.6 million former policy owners who have purchased term life or disability coverage since 1981.

I never dreamed how much this would mean to me

I received another check today, much to my surprise. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I never dreamed how much this would mean to me in my golden years, as I have had hearing problems for years and needed to update my hearing aids, but with a limited income, found that was impossible. I now have the best hearing aids that I have ever had, thanks to you fighting so hard on my behalf.
