    Like so many, I wish to know if I should stop making payments to (3) insurance policies. Who do I contact if you can’t give me the answer?

    ADMIN – Hi Lena,

    This question is best answered by your own attorney. We don’t know what the risks are associated to your policy or if the insurance carrier will now comply with the terms and conditions set forth in the policies they sold.

  16. Lena Anderson says:

    I have 3 policies. Which is the one being sued? You ask for policy #, should I enter all three?

    ADMIN – Hi Lena,

    It would be best if you contact the class action admin to ask for additional assistance.

  20. Stephen Royster says:

    I policy was bought in my name back in 1973. I cashed it in sometimes between 2014 and 2016. Am i still qualified for the claim? However i did fill out a claim form on-line. The policy had poor benefits. The Health Extras part would only pay $100 (one time) for the lost of an eye or limb and was no longer payable after 65 years of age. I will be 60 years old July 2017.

    ADMIN – Hi Stephen,
    Based on what you are telling me you appear to be a member of the class. Please double-check with the class admin to confirm your claim is valid.
