Great American’s Annuity Customers Share Their Secrets to a Great Retirement

CINCINNATI — February 12, 2019 — Great American Insurance Group, a leading provider of fixed and fixed-indexed annuities through its member companies, recently launched “Great Retirements,” a five-part video series that explores the makings of a great retirement.

The series provides a glimpse into the lives of five Great American Annuity customers, showcasing retirement experiences from modest Midwestern cities to sprawling Florida beach towns. Though each retiree’s story is unique, they all share a view that their golden years are fulfilling and financially stable.

Donna Carrelli, Divisional Vice President, Marketing Services, valued the opportunity to hear customers tell their retirement stories.

“It’s incredibly rewarding to witness our customers enjoying great retirements,” said Carrelli. “We take great pride in simplifying the path to a secure financial future, and knowing that we had even a small part in making their retirement dreams a reality is the greatest feeling I’ve experienced in my 20 years with Great American. Thank you to our valued distribution partners who help make it possible.”

The video series, which is available at, is a follow up to Great American’s successful Live Your Life Great campaign that invited customers to submit photos of what makes their lives great. Great American received over 1,100 photo submissions that featured safari rides with grandchildren, swimming with dolphins, gondola rides in Venice and exploring the Everglades by airboat, among others. Due to the campaign’s overwhelming response, Great American plans to continue it later this year.
