Award acknowledges Vantis Life's commitment to serve DCU members with life insurance protection

WINDSOR, CT - March 15, 2007 - Vantis Life Insurance Company announced today that it has received Digital Federal Credit Union's (DCU) "Business Partnership Excellence Award." The award recognizes DCU business partners who support the credit union's mission and vision to make a difference in the lives of members.

Ed Crisci, VP of Marlborough, Massachusetts-based DCU Financial, says that Vantis Life has been very flexible in accommodating the needs of DCU members. "Vantis Life understands the value of going the extra mile to help our members protect their families with life insurance," states Mr. Crisci. "They clearly understand the value of flexibility as we try to offer more valuable products to more of our members. We are glad to have them as a business partner."

Vantis Life worked closely with DCU management to create a life insurance program that is available to members through an integrated direct response program and via the credit union's web site. The program is designed to reach as many members as possible, including members who are non US citizens with specific visa types.

"Vantis Life is honored to have received this award from DCU," responded Craig Simms, SVP of Marketing at Vantis Life. "DCU has seen dramatic membership growth, and Vantis Life wants to help as many members as possible protect their responsibilities with life insurance. Our business model is built on meeting the needs of our financial institution clients and I'm pleased that this has been acknowledged by DCU."
