Conseco Earns Top United Way Honor

CARMEL, Ind., June 17 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Conseco, Inc. (NYSE: CNO) is among a select group in the six-county Central Indiana area that earned the coveted "Company that Cares" distinction for results during the 2007 United Way of Central Indiana (UWCI) annual workplace campaign, announced UWCI President and CEO Ellen K. Annala.

The recognition is awarded to organizations that reach their fundraising or participation goal and achieve benchmarks in volunteer community involvement, leadership giving and more. "Companies that Care" also excel in educating employees about community needs and the best ways to meet them, and exemplify the spirit of volunteerism by allowing employees to give time to United Way and its agencies.

  Conseco's 2007 United Way campaign won several other awards, including:

  -- "Breakthrough Campaign" award - Terri Bendes, campaign coordinator for
     2007, and her team executed two leadership presentations, promotions at
     summer concerts, and an employee lunch fair involving 10 UW agencies,
     with the 2007 campaign theme of "Its Your Turn."  Conseco had a
     "breakthrough campaign" for the second consecutive year by increasing
     donations to the campaign by 30%.
  -- "Top 10 Company in Hamilton County" award - Conseco was among the top
     10 money-raising companies in Hamilton County during the 2007 campaign.
  -- Day of Caring - Conseco was recognized for participating in United
     Way's Day of Caring.  Associates gave up a Saturday to perform fix-up
     and back-office chores at two United Way agencies.

"Conseco sets the same rigorous standards for community involvement that they set for their core business, and we celebrate their achievements to improve lives and communities through United Way. Together, we're addressing today's needs while reducing tomorrow's," Annala said.
