Forward-Looking Statements
This Site includes "forward-looking statements" that express expectations of future events and/or results. All statements based on future expectations rather than on historical facts are forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties, and Occidental Life Insurance Company of North Carolina
cannot give assurance that such statements will prove to be correct. 

You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.  They typically use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “expect,” “project,” “intend,” “plan,” “believe,” and other similar words.  Any or all of the forward-looking statements here or in other publications may turn out to be incorrect.

Forward-looking statements can be affected by inaccurate assumptions or by known or unknown risks and uncertainties.  Many such factors will be important in determining our actual future results.  Consequently, there can be no assurance that the results described in such forward-looking statements will be realized.  The risks and uncertainties that may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in such forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following:  (i) changes in general economic conditions, including the performance of financial markets and interest rates; (ii) heightened competition, including with respect to pricing, entry of new competitors and the development of new products by new and existing competitors; (iii) unanticipated changes in industry trends; (iv) catastrophe losses; (v) adverse litigation or arbitration results; (vi) regulatory, accounting or tax changes that may affect the cost of, or demand for, the company’s products or services; (vii) downgrades in the company’s and its affiliates claims paying ability, financial strength ratings or debt ratings; (viii) changes in rating agency policies or practices; (ix) discrepancies between actual claims experience and assumptions used in setting prices for the company’s products and establishing the liabilities for the company’s obligations for future policy benefits and claims;  (x) discrepancies between actual experience and assumptions used in establishing liabilities related to other contingencies or obligations;  (xi) the effects of business disruption or economic contraction due to terrorism or other hostilities.  The company specifically disclaims any obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future developments or otherwise.  Given these uncertainties, you should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.
