Wednesday, September 28, 2005
CHICAGO (September 28, 2005) - Bankers
Life and Casualty Company today announced a series of initiatives
to provide special help to its policyholders in Alabama, Louisiana
and Mississippi that have been affected by the hurricanes, as
requested by the state insurance departments:
- We are providing a grace period until January 1, 2006, for
premium payments due from affected policyholders. We will take no
actions on premiums due, overdue, or cancellations until after that
date, and policyholders may disregard any premium notices that may
be automatically generated before that date.
- After January 1, 2006, we will work with individual affected
policyholders on a case-by-case basis to bring their premiums
current in a method financially feasible for them.
- For the foreseeable future, we will process - on an expedited
basis, before all other pending business - any requests for loans,
withdrawals, or cancellations from affected policyholders.
- At all times, we will make every effort to modify our normal
administrative practices to accommodate affected policy
- We have established a special team to respond to service
requests from the affected areas. If you have a Bankers insurance
policy and you have questions or concerns about billing, claims or
any other service issue, please call us toll-free on the Gulf Coast
policyholder hotline, 1-800-843-9085, Monday
