“I dislike having to be approved by my employer because my employer does not contribute to my annuity.”

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

“I would like to say that Great American staff were extremely helpful to me in dealing with a claim for my father. It is a very trying time for me and I was somewhat overwhelmed by everything that I needed to get done. You made things so much easier for me. Thanks so much.”
