Homesteaders Life Company Named Top Workplace

West Des Moines, Iowa — Homesteaders Life Company, a national leader in prearranged funeral funding,
has been named a Top Iowa Workplace for 2017. The annual award is given to companies that exhibit
outstanding employee satisfaction and organizational health. This is the third consecutive year
Homesteaders has received the honor.

“I am proud of everything we have accomplished together in the last year – all while maintaining a strong
brand, exceptional service standards and continued financial strength,” observed Homesteaders Chairman,
President and CEO Steve Lang. “Our robust company culture reflects values shared by our funeral home
customers, who also serve with honesty, integrity and respect for others.”

This year’s honorees were chosen based on the results of an employee feedback survey conducted by The
Des Moines Register in conjunction with WorkplaceDynamics. More than 90% of Homesteaders
employees participated, reporting high satisfaction in areas of compensation, benefits, management and
work/life balance.

VP-Human Resources Judy Ralston-Hansen. “This recognition is especially important as it’s determined
by our own employees’ ratings and input on our company, our management team and our culture.”
