NEW YORK, March 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As Americans face the growing
responsibility to save and plan for their retirement, ING U.S. announced today
that it has launched a new advertising campaign focused on the importance of
closely managing the money they have earmarked for retirement.

Through the new campaign, ING U.S. introduces a concept that leverages its
well-known orange brand color. The creative message suggests that everyone
needs to start picturing some of their money as Orange Money. Unlike their
green money, their Orange Money needs to be set aside today in order to
prepare for their retirement goals. The campaign will feature three new
television commercials along with a digital marketing component. View the
videos and related material at Orange Money Campaign.

As a leading provider of retirement, investment and insurance solutions, ING
U.S.'s mission is to help Americans advance their level of retirement
readiness. The new Orange Money campaign supports the company's efforts to
raise awareness about saving and planning for retirement today, in order to be
ready for tomorrow.

"The theme of this campaign is more than simply about saving – it's about
prioritization, so that you feel like you're in control of your financial
future," said Ann Glover, ING U.S. chief marketing officer. "More
importantly, the ads show how being prudent with your 'Orange Money' and
sensibly managing your personal finances doesn't mean you have to give up
living, which you do with your green money."

The three television commercials literally and figuratively convey the idea
that Orange Money is for long-term saving. Similar to past advertising, the
new ING U.S. campaign takes on a light and irreverent style while leveraging
iconic imagery that has characterized the company's brand evolution in the
U.S. – much like its "Bench" and retirement "Number" creative.

In one spot called "Grill Master," a man is shopping for a barbecue grill.
Although he entered the store intending to buy a large, nicely equipped
stainless steel grill, a salesman tries to steer him to a pricier model with
many more bells and whistles. After comparing the two grills, and then
looking at the green and Orange Money in his wallet, the customer decides the
first model is more than adequate. He puts the Orange Money back in his
wallet and confidently states that "this Orange Money is not for awesome
grills; it's for my awesome retirement."

Another spot features a couple discussing the importance of being responsible
with their Orange Money, which they need for their retirement. The wife, who
is doing laundry, finds some Orange Money in the pocket of a pair of jeans.
After calling out her husband to be more careful with their Orange Money, he
dutifully points out that the jeans belong to her.

"From the time you start saving at your first job to the point when you're
enjoying your post-retirement years, ING U.S. is here to help customers
accumulate, protect and manage their Orange Money," added Glover.

The new Orange Money commercials will begin airing March 14 on financial news
programming across a number of networks. They are also scheduled to run on
network television around sports programming, including the men's national
collegiate basketball championships.

Digital advertising will include online video, display ads, paid search, and
high-impact site sponsorships. Ads will appear across a variety of digital
properties that are visited for financial information and other content that
aligns with target customer lifestyle interests.
