  Re:   Primerica, Inc. Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-173271)


Dear Mr. Riedler:


Pursuant to Rule 461 under the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”), on behalf of Primerica, Inc. (the “Company”), I respectfully request that the effective date of the above-referenced Registration Statement on Form S-3 (File No. 333-173271), as amended by Amendment No. 1 thereto filed on April 8, 2011 (as amended, the “Registration Statement”), be accelerated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) so that the Registration Statement will become effective under the Securities Act at 5:00 p.m., New York time, on April 8, 2011, or as soon thereafter as practicable.


I hereby acknowledge the following:



should the Commission or the staff of the Commission (the “Staff”), acting pursuant to delegated authority, declare the Registration Statement effective, it does not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the Registration Statement;



the action of the Commission or the Staff, acting pursuant to delegated authority in declaring the Registration Statement effective, does not relieve the Company from its full responsibility for the accuracy and adequacy of the disclosure in the Registration Statement; and



the Company may not assert the declaration of effectiveness as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States.
