If you don't have a need to file a claim, this insurance policy is probably fine. If you're unlucky enough to have to file a claim, as we were, be prepared for an expensive and lengthy battle (7 months, in our case), and likely the involvement of an attorney, to get the insurance carrier to pay the policy benefits for which you've paid a very expensive premium. My recommendation: stay away from this insurance carrier at all costs!

    We have confirmed with Global Alert that the benefit was paid per the provisions of the policy. We are sorry for your loss.

      Debra, you are correct that the benefits were eventually paid. However, it took 7 months and about $2,000 in attorney's fees to get the insurer to read its own policy and pay accordingly. I believe that my review of this company is fair and accurate.

I bought the insurance for peace of mind in case something went wrong. I am glad I did not have to use it so cannot comment on customer service dealing with a claim.
