In April 2010 Bankers Life Agent talked me into converting a long term policy into a home care/life policy. He had me make out a check for $221 and Bankers Life deducted from my checking account $219 the amount on the old policy I made these two payments in April, the Agent swore up and down I would not have to make a payment in May, they stole the May payment out of my account anyway I had to cancel my checking account to prevent any more theft. I never received the New Policy. They never returned my money.
I took out a loan on my life insurance policy from Bankers Life and Casualty 14 days ago. They said there would be no problem! As of this day I have just got one run around after another on when I'm going to get my check and who's fault it was.I called home office and they said they would have it for me in three business day, no later than yesterday. Waited for check until after mailman run, guess what, no check. Called them back up, They said the man whowas supposed to send it out, the address did not have an S for south so he didn't send it. I was told it would be sent priority mail to me for today no check!!
For those who are thinking of joining Bankers Life and Casualty as either an agent or as a client I need to...
I have been trying to file a claim with Banker's Life Long Term care for my 91 YO mother for over 6...
I was so delighted at first setting up my elderly mothers annuity plan and life insurance, then the mistakes started happening, the checks didnt come as planned it took 3 months for the payments to begin, and then I got 2 at a time, not knowing one was the real check and one had a different account on it. Thank God I didnt cash them. Once the mystery of the double checks were solved and the income annuity was coming in, I talked my brother into joining and setting up an income annuity for himself, he is in the enstages of COPD, his checks never did come in, he demanded his money back and got it, (lucky him). Now that mom is very ill and is not going to be with us much longer I need more money to pay for a facility. On the 6th of April, I signed papers to cash in one policy, and change my address, by the 20th of April the Annuity Dept got my paperwork, (yeah in this day and age of electronic transmissions you would think it would have gone faster than the ponyexpress) I was promised that I would get paid by the 17th of May. So I waited... On the 18th of May I started calling, it didnt help that my agent would not return my calls so I felt I was in it alone. Finally when my agent did answer his phone, he said he would call in the morning, the next day I found out that the check was issued to my old address, so the post office returned the check to the company, not sure why they didnt forward the check to my new address everything else was forwarded, the annuity dept had the correct address on the paperwork submitted yet they still sent the check in the amount of $25, 000 to the wrong address, such incompetence! Now after my 5th call to the annuity dept I was told it was still in process of being reissued and would not be sent out until Monday. When my mom passes I will pull whats left of her money out and reinvest it into savings bonds it my take longer to mature but by God I know where they are. I would not recommend Bankers to my enemies much less to anyone who is looking for a secure future.
I was an agent with Bankers Life. My income was restricted by the new Branch manager through control of leads I paid for and assignment of agents to me.
This is an office of 7 to 15 agents. In the past year this office has gone through over 30 agents and three managers.
Bankers is aware of the financial situation they placed me in.
I live in Kentucky so they are filed a law suit against me in Chicago knowing I could not afford a lawyer or the constant trip to Chicago as a result of my association with them.
The suit is base on the fact that this same branch mangager is stating that a client said that an agent said that I told them to stop by.
I am an easy target.
Can anyone help?
I worked for Bankers for a little over 6 months. During that time I was promised leads, training, and a...
We've been trying for 4 months to cash in an annuity. My father had to go into a nursing home about 5 months ago. He had nursing home insurance with Bankers Life, but found it would pay very little, wasn't as we were told. We haven't seen a penny from it, don't expect to. We had to apply for Medicaid to pay for his nursing home care. To do so all assets for that person have to be cashed in. We had little trouble with other companies, but Bankers has given us the run- a- round with the annuity. An agent visited the home, filled out forms, called the company to see if they had everything needed. He said the check would be sent in a couple of weeks. That was over 3 months ago. We've called & e-mailed the company over & over to no avail. They always have some excuse, or transfer us elsewhere. Some have been downright rude, others have just lied. We've had to pay out at least $18, 000 so far in nursing home costs we would not have had to pay if we hadn't had the annuity. The Medicaid social worker told us she sees this sort of situation with Bankers all the time. If this continues we could be bankrupted as a result of doing business with Bankers. Now they're telling us the check was mailed 8 or 9 days ago. It still hasn't arrived. Today a rep told us it'll come, often takes that long. That's strange as we're about 500 miles from the home office.
I have a resume posted on Career Builder and eceived an unsolicited call regarding a job "interview" from Bankers Life and Casualty Company (email below). When I inquired about the position descrption, I was told to go to www.bankers.com where I was immediately put through to Conseco Recruiting. This is a scam. They have no position. Please stop them!

My sister, I'll call Amy, had posted an online resume, Bankers Life phoned her for an interview. All the rewards and benefits she was told about was just too good for someone with her work experience. I went to an interview with her just to help her find the address and just planned on sitting in the waiting room. Amy went back in an office and about ten minutes later she came out and ask me to come back there with her. There were two men in this office along with one popping his head in and out. As I sat down these guys started asking me questions. It was as if they were plotting a strategy. I listened to three hiper, laughing men for a few minutes going on about careers, commissions and how upper management would be so proud of them to hire both me and my sis. Very confused about what was going on, I ask them, what's up with this interview because I wasn't looking for a job, my sister was. Basically they said that with Amy's and my looks that we could make a lot of money with Bankers. How with our looks and our sweet personalities that no one could resist buying policies from us.
Then as long as I live I will never forget what one interviewer said while the others chimed in. William said, "These old Gizzers won't know what hit them, they will buy any policy just to get to look at you two." A lot of other derogatory comments were made about the elderly too. The first person to come to my mind is our own Poppop. What a terrible name to call our elderly men.
I stood up and looked at Amy and my sweet Amy completely went off on these guys. She told them that they had wasted her time because she didn't know the job was for a prostitute. She also told them that since she was a christian that she didn't think the Lord would appreciate her taking advantage of the elderly for a pay check. As we walked out the door, my sweet Amy said very loudly, "you sick SOB's." and slammed the door. I was so proud of her. I couldn't have told them off the way she did because I was in shock.
A good thing come out of this interview. We love the elderly, we have several in our church that we visit as if they were our grandparents. Amy has enrolled to start Speech Therapy, she wants a job helping our elderly, not harm them.
We did write a letter to the Protection for the elderly.
Job seekers, especially women, BEWARE of Banker Life. Don't waste your time or your dignity interviewing with these creeps.
Bankers Life and Casualty should be shut down. This company is absolutly deceitful in its behavior. My Mother bought a Long Term Care policy on my father years ago. My father has become bedridden, in need of significant daily care. The company did pay 26k of the claim after making us jump through hoops but given good documentation paid. Now after a required 6 month break and additional 6-9mos we filed additional legitimate claims and the company is trying desperatly to weasel it way out of its obligations. No straight answer from anybody, shifted from person to person, no case representive. As of late are now claiming they sold us a different type of policy than the salesperson stated and different than even the policy documents describe. We have retained legal representation and given full documentation will track them to the end of the earth to get fair treatment. I CAUTION YOU that unless you have significant resources to hire an attorney and are in good enough health to maintain the pace of the task DO YOUR BUSINESS ELSEWHERE. This company is an absolute rip off scam and with good reason they have lost better business bureau accredation. The top executives should be put in jail and the people that enforce their theiving policies should me put in as well...
This company should be ashamed of themselves. My parents 75 and 76 years old have had a policy with them for 6 years. My dad had a significant stroke that left him seriously debilitated. He was sent home to die with dignity and respect. My mother contacted Bankers Life to "activate" his policy for home care. Believing in what the agent sold her (all lies).
She was told by MULTIPLE people at Banker's Life, " He (my father) met criteria for round the clock care 24 hours / 7 days a week". Any sane person would believe that meant Bankers Life would pay on the claims for round the clock care givers 24/7. WRONG!!! They failed to mention the BUT... He met criteria for round the clock care 24/7 BUT... the policy will only pay a max benefit of $120 a day. Now who knows anyone who will work for $5.00 an hour . No one. It's unamerican. It's below minimum wage. Disgraceful!!! Bankers Life is deceiving our eldery. Selling them a pack of lies to get them to sign up for the policies. They had no problem taking the funds from my parents to pay the policy premiums, but they have all kinds of problems paying on the claims. I say it's Elder Abuse!!! When you call the company, you get a huge run around with empty promises that they will "look into it", and call you back. No such luck. "Customer Service" representatives are very rude. I spoke with five different people trying to help my mother, to no avail.
I can only hope someone will see this psoting and avoid getting involved with Bankers Life & Casualty.
For my mother whom is 75 years old to have to go through this while trying to cre for her 76 year old status post stroke husband of 54 years is a crying shame.
Again, I say to Banker Life & Casualty - SHAME on you!
I went on an interview with this company after being contacted after having my resume posted on a job board...
My 92 yr old Mother was in perfect health until suffering a TAI in Jan 08. It caused her to move in with us which is fine. I love taking care of my Mother, however, Bankers gave her a long term health care plan in '97 with in home care. Today I called and they said 'not true; only if she is in a nursing home! And then I'd have to pay out of pocket the first 3 months!! I want at home assistance and they will not provide and the cost would be less. They have ripped her off, lied to her and taken advantage. I will seek legal counsel and I will seek out the news media to make sure that everyone knows about the snakes called Bankers Life & Casalty. Watch out for them...they just want your money!
My dad was approved for reimbursement for long term care. We were waiting for the elimination period to end...

I have received many threatening voice mails from Stuart Allen & Associates concerning a supposed debt I owe following my departure from Bankers Life and Casualty Company, in Jacksonville FL.
At one point in the past year I attempted to set up a payment plan for this debt for which I have never received proof that I owe...just to get them to stop harassing me, but I was told by the representative at Stuart Allen that she would accept nothing less than payment in full. When I tried to explain that I did not have over $2k in my account to just write a check she instructed me to contact my friends and family to ask them for the money.
By the end of the call she even added a personal note concerning my voice mail message. Being prior service Army, I still have friends fighting in Iraq. At the time a good friend of mine was attempting to reach me from that location so I added a message to him on my voice mail greeting in the event I missed his calls. The Stuart Allen representative began to tell me how she had difficulty reaching me and it appeared that I was screening my calls. She then proceeded to advise me not to screen my calls as it would be a shame to miss a call from my friend while he was fighting in the war. This is just one of the many personally insulting and harassing calls and voice mails that I've received since leaving Bankers Life at the end of 2007.
If anyone has any advice on how to move forward with this situation in a legal ethically sound manner please advice.
