About Rick Altig Jr & Ilija Orlovic
“I knew from day one that this opportunity was exactly what I was looking for, and that I could be a success in this business,” says Ilija Orlovic, SGA Partner in the Altig-Orlovic Agency.
Formerly a retail manager, Ilija has had tremendous success since joining American Income Life in May 1996. After only seven months with AIL, he was appointed Master General Agent in January 1997. Two years later, Ilija was promoted to Regional General Agent.
Rick Altig, State General Agent, joined American Income Life Insurance Company when he was only 21 years old. He had graduated from Oregon State University with a degree in political science and needed to earn money before attending law school. His dad’s agency represented American Income Life, and he suggested Rick join the team.
Recalls Rick, “I started as an Agent and became a General Agent while becoming one of the top Public Relations people in AIL. I earned a promotion to Master General Agent and then another to State General Agent when I was only 23 years old. I opened the first Canadian office in American Income Life, and I was the first SGA whose agency produced 25 million dollars in one year. Rick has shared his talent with AIL for 29 years.
