More Than 500 Annuity Customers Showcase What Makes Their Lives Great

CINCINNATI -- April 19, 2017 -- Great American Insurance Group received more than 500 submissions during a six-month campaign that invited its annuity customers to submit photos of what makes their lives great.

Many of the photos came from retirees, demonstrating that great retirements take on many forms. Photos captured customers enjoying moments that range from cheering on grandkids at a soccer game and relaxing on the beach to exploring the Grand Canyon and hiking through waterfalls.

According to Donna Carrelli, Vice President of Annuity Marketing Services, the Live Your Life Great campaign allowed Great American’s annuity customers to show how they’re living their dreams and inspire others to start planning for their own futures.

“We appreciate this opportunity to connect with our customers and see what’s important in their lives,” said Carrelli. “Our goal isn’t to just sell annuities, but to help our customers achieve financial security, so they can do whatever it is that makes their lives great.”

Carrelli spoke with some of the participants who shared their stories about how an annuity has helped support their goals.

“Our customers purchase an annuity for a variety of reasons. For some, it’s about protecting and growing what they’ve already saved or taking advantage of tax deferral. For others, it’s about receiving guaranteed retirement income or leaving an inheritance for their heirs,” Carrelli adds. “We’re proud to offer products to support all of these needs.”
