"This account was handled through a third party administrator and they did a poor job of keeping touch with me. I only heard from them once after I set up the account almost ten years ago. I would possibly use Great American again, but not through a third party."

We know plan administrator requirements can be frustrating. We’re always available to help our policyholders work through any questions!
