Auto-Owners Insurance is a Fortune 500 company that offers many types of insurance including life annuity accounts, which are investment structures designed to provide payments at specified intervals.

Pig “E” Bank is a web application that provides a convenient and easy-to-use way for users to make electronic deposits into annuity accounts. The users may be the annuity account holder or even a family member or friend making a deposit as a gift.

Electronic deposits are made with a simple three-step process. If the deposit is a gift, a user can send an additional small gift like a teddy bear or a note to the annuity account holder. Payment options include credit cards or electronic fund transfers.

Pig “E” Bank works with mobile web browsers. With such accessibility, making deposits into annuity accounts has never been easier or more convenient.

Our system also includes an administrator web site, which is used to track and possibly resolve payments. Payment records can be searched by date and by the account holder’s name.

Our Pig “E” Bank web interface is written in HTML and JavaScript. The backend is written in C# using ASP.NET.
