Senior citizens have enough to worry about, from health to family to bills. Unfortunately, the insurance companies that they have signed policies with do not always live up to what they promise. In far too many cases each year, older residents are punished by the companies they trusted just for filing what they think is a routine claim. For many seniors that have had longstanding insurance policies, they find that their protections have decreased while their bills pile up.
One of the most pressing concerns regarding seniors and their insurance is the AARP’s endorsement of plans that do not work. The group endorsed the Hartford Insurance Company for their members, even though it is one of the worst offenders in bad faith claims. The lawsuits and complaints against the company speak for themselves. However, Hartford’s relationship with the AARP, including payments from the company are a major concern. The Hartford offers auto and homeowners insurance to seniors and the general population, but is well known for denying claims on such policies when needed.
The Hartford is continually ranked near the bottom by consumer protection groups and agencies. The company’s track record show that such a company should be avoided, especially by those that will need the coverage the most. If you or a loved one chose the Hartford as your insurance carrier and were denied a claim unjustly, you will need legal assistance to challenge the corporation. A skilled insurance attorney will be able to determine how to inform the company of their error and challenge them for just compensation.
Don’t be taken advantage of or allow such a company to do so to others. The AARP’s stamp isn’t the be all, end all of whether an insurance company is worth your time and money: the company’s own record of how it treats its consumers is.
