Who We Are

Trans World Assurance Company was founded in 1963 by a decorated WWII Marine, Charles Woodbury. As a combat aviator, Mr. Woodbury was instilled with a sense of purpose, commitment and all the values and traditions that make our military and country the strongest in the world. After retiring from the military, Mr. Woodbury returned to Pensacola, Florida and began working with local families (military and non-military) to help them increase their quality of life, as well as their level of security, by offering them unique and stable financial products designed specifically for their needs. He worked with thousands of people who all had a similar problem...a lack of retirement and insurance planning. Mr. Woodbury also realized that most companies providing programs to the men and women of the US Armed Forces were out of touch with their unique needs. Charles Woodbury believed he could provide a better program for our U.S. military and civilians worldwide by forming his own company -- Trans World Assurance Company.

TWA was founded on tradition and built to provide a solid future for its customers. Since its inception, Trans World has been dedicated to providing only the safest and strongest cash accumulation life insurance products available. With a simple and systematic approach to investing in United States Government bonds and highly rated corporate bonds, extremely low overhead and great service, TWA has grown into one of the strongest and most stable insurance companies in America. Since its inception, TWA has remained strong and solid, even during times of uncertainty. TWA continues to stay true to the vision of its founder, Charles P. Woodbury, by continuously providing protection, cash accumulation, and a secure retirement for its customers, military and civilian alike.

TWA is also proud to be an underwriter of our U.S. military's Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (SGLI) program that protects all military members throughout the world. We strongly encourage participation in SGLI, and we feel that our flexible Universal and whole life insurance plans and their extraordinary record of building cash are an excellent supplement to government or other programs you might have.

As was the goal of our founder, we remain committed to the highest standards of business, and to products that incorporate sound planning, flexibility, "tax-deferred" capital/cash accumulation, and life benefits for our customers. TWA is licensed in 47 states and worldwide, and our track record speaks for itself.
