Additionally, Standard & Poor’s gives our flagship companies a financial strength rating of “A” based on “consistently solid operating performance,” according to the S&P 500 Report on October 15, 2008. This rating reflects our strong competitive position in the 403(b) and annuity markets.
Investing with a stable company
One of Great American Financial Resources®, Inc.’s principal objectives is to ensure that we deliver on our promises to you. One way we do this is by maintaining a high-quality corporate investment portfolio. Fixed income investments, consisting of fixed maturity investments, cash, short-term investments and policy loans, comprise approximately 95 percent of the company’s invested assets, compared to the insurance industry average of approximately 82 percent.
I contacted Immediate Annuities.com to buy one of my immediate annuities. They were prompt, very responsive, paid attention to detail, understood my objectives, and were superb when it came to staying on top of seeing the funds transfer and issue of new policy documents through to completion.

Our company is one chapter in an American success story with decades of experience in the insurance marketplace, guided by an American family whose first entrepreneurial efforts began in the 1940s with a series of retail dairy stores.
