SLAICO and SCI Form Partnership

Houston, TX - November 03, 2008

(NYSE: SCI) Standard Life and Accident Insurance Company and Service Corporation International have formed a unique partnership through SCI's Dignity Memorial™ network to market funeral planning services in conjunction with Final Expense insurance.

This is an extraordinary combination of services offered by two industries that usually operate independently of one another. By visiting http://www.slaicoplanning.com, clients can preplan the details of their final arrangements, understand the associated costs and make informed decisions to purchase small face amount Final Expense whole life insurance policies in one easy session.

SCI created Dignity Planning® as a free needs analysis program and suitability tool, that gives financial professionals outside of the funeral industry the ability to provide their clients an important component that is usually missing in a complete financial plan," says David Frank, one of the program's co-authors. "Final Event Planning is a caring plan that alleviates two difficult burdens for a client's loved ones, the emotional and financial burden that an end-of-life event can bring. Dignity Planning enables your client and their loved ones to create an end of life plan in the privacy and comfort of their own home. That way, they make good decisions based on facts, not emotions."

Service Corporation International, through its Dignity Memorial network is North America's largest provider of funeral, cremation and cemetery services, including a network of funeral homes and cemeteries in 43 states, eight Canadian Provinces and Puerto Rico.

Standard Life and Accident Insurance Company has been a leader in the insurance industry since 1948 and is part of the American National family of companies. They have been assigned a rating of A+ (Strong) from Standard and Poor's, and rating of A (Excellent) from A.M. Best Company.
