TULSA, Okla., July 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Tulsa-based First Trinity Financial Corp. president and CEO Gregg Zahn appeared on Moving America Forward recently to talk about the growth of the company and its continued goal of securing the financial future for Americans.
The show, hosted by William Shatner, focused on how the growth of First Trinity Financial is bringing financial stability to more Americans throughout the country.
Moving America Forward awarded Gregg Zahn with its Keeping America Strong award for First Trinity Financial's continued investment in securing the financial lives of Americans. The show is set to air on July 7, on BizTV, and online at www.ustream.tv/biztv.
"Today, in our country, over 10,000 Americans a day reach the age of 65," said Gregg Zahn, President and CEO of First Trinity Financial. "Sadly more than half of those people don't have more than $10,000 in a savings or retirement account," said Zahn.
Starting solely in Oklahoma, First Trinity Financial has grown to offering services in 20 states in just seven years. Additionally, the company has invested in helping start two new companies in Texas and Illinois, Texas Republic Capital and Royalty Capital Corporation, respectively.
First Trinity Financial provides a broad range of financial services, but its primary focuses are final expense insurance and annuities.
"Final expense insurance helps people provide for their final expenses so they don't leave a burden on their children after their passing," said Zahn. In speaking on the company's annuities Zahn said, "An annuity grows on a tax deferred basis and when you go to annuitize the program, you can design it to pay you an income for the rest of your life."
Founded in 2007, First Trinity Financial has seen exponential growth over the last 5 years with expansion into Missouri, Illinois, Texas and 14 other states.
