The Standard's Fixed Annuities Made Barron's Top Five
I hope you noticed the recent Barron's magazine article that listed two of The Standard's annuities products in their top 25 recommended picks. In the category of deferred payment, indexed annuities, our product ranked second based on a five-year average return. Under deferred fixed annuity with a five-year guarantee, we made the top five. For a hard copy of the article, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
At The Standard, we work hard to develop fixed annuities offering real consumer value that stands the test of time. We believe that a good fixed annuity offers a fair new money rate, but more importantly, a fair renewal rate. Apparently, Barron's agrees we're getting it right!

Introducing Two Stellar Members Of Our Customer Service Team
We're happy to introduce two employees who are bringing great energy and stellar service to the annuities team. Erin Whitaker, who joined us in December 2010, started her tenure with The Standard in our dental department in 2006. Erin brings a winning attitude to work each day, and we receive great feedback on the service she provides our customers.
Shanda Moore joined The Standard's annuities team in May 2011. Previously, she worked for Nationwide Insurance where she served as a Retention/Sales Agent. Clients comment on both her friendly attitude and knowledgeable assistance. Both Erin and Shanda help The Standard deliver on our commitment to provide the industry's best customer service.
