  • AXA Equitable Launches Pass It On!(SM)

    September 14, 2011 by N/A

    NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2011/PRNewswire/ — AXA Equitable Life Insurance Company announced today the launch of Pass It On!(SM),  an online game of chance that distills the concept and value of life insurance into a series of choices. Pass It On! players create avatars and guide their virtual families to a better financial future by saving game currency, managing expenses, and making important decisions about life insurance. Players also have the chance to win $25,000 or $15,000 cash prizes as part of the Pass It On! Sweepstakes.

    Participants can also help AXA Equitable help others by voting for one of three great charities – the American Red Cross, CARE, and Scholarship America – during game play.  Each organization will receive a grant from the AXA Foundation based on the number of votes received by Pass It On! players.

    Why a Game?

    “Life insurance is an important financial planning tool,” says David O’Leary, executive vice president and head of Financial Protection at AXA Equitable. “It is, however, an inherently uncomfortable topic and many people find shopping for it easy to put off. According to LIMRA, life insurance sales are at a fifty year low. Some 11 million U.S. households with children younger than 18 have no life insurance. Many of these children would face immediate financial trouble if a parent died.”

    O’Leary continued, “With Pass It On!, AXA Equitable created a simple, casual and hopefully entertaining game to help bridge the education gap about life insurance and reverse these disturbing statistics.”

    At game start, Pass It On! players select beneficiaries. Gold is the game currency, which allows players to buy silver or gold shields, representing term or permanent life insurance. As the game of chance progresses, players face risks, vulnerabilities and critical choices that impact their families.

    “Games aren’t just child’s play. They have the potential to be effective educational tools,” says Connie O’Brien, senior vice president of Internet Strategy and Design for AXA Equitable. “According to techcrunch.com, 100 million people played casual social online games last year, 60% of whom were women, with an average age of 43. AXA Equitable invites these women and all gamers, many of whom are parents, to get serious about exploring real life financial security decisions and their consequences through the playful creation of their Pass It On! avatars.”

    Let the Games Begin
