My poor mother needed long term care from John Hankock after having paid into her policy over many years.After many months of evaluation , and their "elimination period"'a type of deductible, it looked as if my mom would begin to receive payments as she had passed all requirements. After many calls and a pleasant but nonresponsive staff never delivered on their promise to send payments. We had provided all the proof of her care, documenting every hour of care. John Hankock never paid the much needed funds owed to my mom until 2 weeks after she passed away. What an awful ordeal! What a scam John Hankock long term care is. Please do not waste your dollars with this company, a shoe box... Read More


Long Term Care =========================== I have not had anything to claim yet to rate their claim response, but the customer service on their accounting is absolutely the lowest. 1] I have been paying our premium for both of my wife and my accounts via separated my bank auto payment setup for over five years, 2] in middle of 2016, they changed the address without notifying us, the last three payments got returned due to wrong address.

My Premium was just hiked 83%. As federal employees we are being ripped off. This not a stable insurance company to invest in. We need Congressional Action to stop this insurance company from ripping off America and federal employees.

John Hancock Performance LTC is easily the most expensive LTC policy being marketed today. It has an increasing premium structure if 3% compound inflation is elected. It has premiums that are 200% higher than other companies if 5% compound is elected. Consumers will find much better value through Mass Mutual or Mutual of Omaha. Run far away from this John Hancock policy! Pure junk. Smoke and mirrors marketing with "Flex Credits."
