AM Best has removed from under review with developing implications and affirmed the Financial Strength Rating of A (Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings of “a+” of American Family Connect Property and Casualty Insurance Company (formerly known as IDS Property Casualty Insurance Company) and its wholly owned, fully reinsured subsidiary, American Family Connect Insurance Company (formerly known as Ameriprise Insurance Company). These companies will be referred to as American Family Connect P&C Companies (De Pere, WI). The outlook assigned to these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable.

The ratings reflect American Family Connect P&C Companies’ balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as strongest, as well as its adequate operating performance, favorable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

The rating action reflects the role these companies will have as members of American Family Insurance Group. Explicit support is provided to the companies through their participation in an inter-company reinsurance program with American Family Mutual Insurance Company, S.I.
