It is Election Day and the courts are closed, which creates an opportunity for me to write a note to thank you for the effort you put into teaching Pat and I about long term health care. Over the past-ten or fifteen years I had met with folks from USAA, Navy Mutual Aid, Banker’s Life, John Hancock and others who were trying to sell us on their policies, but you were working to help us understand what the coverage was all about and what our needs were going to be, which was a sales methodology that none of the others had used, but really matched our needs.
The upshot is that we feel we obtained a good product that will protect us as well as our families at a reasonable cost, and that your knowledge and experience brought us to understand what we needed to know to make a good decision, and guided us toward that decision.
We both valued your input, your knowledge, and your ability to help us evaluate the information you shared and the product choices you laid out to US: The bottom line is that your professional approach gave us confidence in you, your product, and your professionalism. It was a pleasure doing business with you.
Just a word about Ben Polis, Thanks! Now for more, Belinda and I had been thinking about Long Term Care Insurance for a couple of years after seeing the costs involved in caring for aging parents. Ben Polis met with us and explained the different plans in our home in a “no pressure” situation. He allowed us time to think about what he could offer us, then called us back after we had made our decision to get LTC Insurance before we had another birthday!!!
I highly recommend Ben Polis based upon my experience in obtaining Long-Term Care Insurance with Mutual of Omaha. He is a very knowledgeable and dedicated professional agent. Although initially Mutual of Omaha did not give me the better premium rate based upon my medical records, he worked with the Company and provided the information required to get the lower premium amount. Without his assistance, such success may not have been possible. Throughout my dealings, I have very much enjoyed working with Ben and feel that others may benefit as well by using his services.
Ben has helped our family on two fronts: long term care and term insurance. He clearly explained the benefits of having long term care insurance in language we could easily comprehend. We feel much more confident in our financial security in this area, plus we received a $500 state income tax credit in 2013. With Ben’s help, we were also able to double the amount of term insurance on me for the same monthly premium we were paying our previous insurance company.
In my work as a RN I was aware of the increasing costs of health care, especially long term. With assets to protect I researched long term insurance programs through professional organizations and individual programs. Ben’s extensive experience and knowledge helped me sort through the various insurance companies and policies to select the one that fit my needs.
My name is Carl. I reside in the state of North Carolina. My wife Elizabeth and I recently purchased long term care insurance through Ben Polis. We were very, very happy with the experience.
Ben showed us that you need to work with a specialist in long term care insurance planning rather than relying on a financial advisor. In long term care insurance, Ben is the “orthodonist” while the financial adviser is the “general dentist.” His design knowledge and ability to acquire discounted premiums actually saved us over $1,000 per year. He earned our business over the dismay of our financial advisor.
I highly recommend Ben Polis to anyone looking for long term care insurance. Ben is the person to guide you through the long term care insurance process.
We contacted Ben about getting information on long term care protection. He talked with me over the phone and listened to our needs and asked intelligent questions about our situation. He offered to come to our home to meet with us to discuss different providers, programs, and levels of service. He was punctual, knowledgeable, and kept to his timeframe. He provided the information he promised and answered all our questions completely. He took an interest in us and suggested some helpful ideas for products. He went to bat for us with the underwriters when there was a question an worked to resolve the issue. Ben was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and empathetic to us. He had stayed in touch since the policy was delivered. I have given his name and contact information to several of my friends and family who have been in the market for long term care coverage.
I have worked with Ben Polis for the past year. I had a medical issue that one insurance carrier was concerned about. Because of it, they wanted me to reapply in a couple of years. Ben asked around and did research on other insurance companies and came up with an alternative plan for me. He also suggested that we have my doctor write a letter about the medical issue. We had success and I now have long term care coverage. Thank you Ben for your persistence. It has been nice working with you.
