“I don't think that I am upset with Great American, but with IRS or governmental regulatory rules. Every time I want to change beneficiaries, apply for my RMD, I need to go back to my former employer and get a signoff. Great American has always been helpful when I asked for help”

We understand the IRS rules and regulations surrounding an employer plan can be difficult. We’re here to help our policyholders work through them!

“I was very impressed with the courteous customer service, it is so rare to deal with a company that obviously values the customer experience. Emily was my customer service representative and she was patient and thorough in answering all my questions. She was also very prompt in sending me the forms that I needed. I have contacted Great American twice over the years that I have been a customer and both times I have been very pleased.”
