The Radnor, Pennsylvania-based financial services provider was founded in Fort Wayne in 1905 and maintains a significant employee presence here.
Lincoln, which released earnings after markets closed, also reported second-quarter revenue of $3.28 billion, a 9 percent increase from the previous year's quarter ended June 30.
The company's annuities segment reported a 16 percent increase in income from operations, to $227 million.

When account balances increase, Lincoln's percentage-based fees also increase.
