The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company was founded in Fort Wayne, Indiana on June 12, 1905. During a time of controversy among big, established insurers, its 33 founders envisioned an insurance company rooted in dependability and honesty. To convey this spirit of integrity, they adopted the name of our 16th President, Abraham Lincoln, to represent the ideals the new company was founded upon. Robert Todd Lincoln, the President's only surviving son, gave the founders permission to use his father's name and likeness in July 1905, solidifying the name for the new company.
