As an accountant I have encountered scores of insurance agents over the years. You are one of the most knowledgeable and professional ones I have met.
You have offered solid guidance in structuring the Miller Bernstein group and LTD plans. In addition, your help in structuring my own life insurance program and that of a number of partners here has been greatly appreciated.
I want to thank you for the time that you have given us when we have had insurance-related questions that concerned our accounting clients. Your objective input has been extremely beneficial on a number of occasions to assist us in understanding certain aspects of their insurance programs.
We trust you will always be there to lend us that time of support.
All my best,

You have taken care of our firm’s group benefits, and many of our partners personal life and disability insurance needs for over 15 years. We have always been impressed with your professional approach to insurance and your integrity.
When you told us that we would be able to increase the amount of disability insurance over and above the group LTD in force, we were very interested. What made us particularly keen was the fact that we did not have to provide medical evidence. Once people get over 45-50, it is inevitable that there are health issues that could preclude some individuals from obtaining more disability insurance. In addition, you were able to structure a discount program for our firm. I understand that normally Unum would not have provided the Guaranteed Disability Insurance Program to our firm, as we did not meet the minimum number of personnel to qualify. I know that because you specialize in disability insurance and have done a lot of work with Unum, you were able to persuade them to make an exception for our firm. This meant that we were able to increase our disability benefits by a minimum of $1,500 per month.
I believe that any accounting or legal firm that is interested in maximizing disability insurance for their partners would benefit greatly by discussing this with you.
If anyone wishes to contact me about this, have them call me at 416-482-7050, extension #230.
