Company to Withdraw Own Individual Disability Product from Allstate Agency Sales Force Effective January 31, 2006

NORTHBROOK, Ill. January 19, 2006 — Allstate current and prospective customers will now have more individual disability income product choices via the Allstate agency sales force. Through an agreement with BISYS, a leading provider of outsourcing solutions for the financial services sector, Allstate agencies will have access to leading disability income products from a variety of carriers beginning January 31, 2006.

The new arrangement replaces the current individual disability income products produced by Allstate Workplace Division, located in Jacksonville, Fla. The Heritage Protector and The Heritage Protector Plus will no longer be offered to Allstate customers after January 31. This decision does not impact current Allstate disability income customers, as Allstate Workplace Division will continue to administer these policies.

Under this new agreement, BISYS will provide expertise and ongoing support in working with leading disability income carriers. BISYS’ work with the Allstate agency force will include education, access to wholesalers, product details, sales illustrations and providing required forms. This support won’t be new to the Allstate agency sales force, as BISYS began working with Allstate recently to provide the company access to long-term care products and service support.

The arrangement with BISYS will not affect Allstate Workplace Division’s disability income product that is offered through workplace accounts. In addition, Allstate Workplace Division will continue to offer individual accident and cancer insurance, along with a supplemental health option policy (SHOP), to the Allstate agency sales force.

Allstate Workplace Division is the marketing name for American Heritage Life Insurance Company (In New York, Allstate Life Insurance Company of New York), wholly owned subsidiaries of The Allstate Corporation. Products are underwritten by American Heritage Life Insurance Company, Home Office, Jacksonville, FL.
