AARP THE HARTFORD Complaint - Victim of AARP The Hartford
PENNSYLVANIA -- Attempting to receive a less expensive Auto Insurance policy, I decided to go with what was advertised as The AARP Auto Insurance program.
What arrived was a company called The Hartford? After going through the usual questions and required information over the telephone. I sent in my 6 month advance payment.
What arrived next, was a complicated 18 plus page form to fill out and sign. Page after page of statements and complicated legalese, with my signature in more than several places.
After completing what I though was the required info. I was informed by a phone call, that I had not signed the forms. A second set was sent to me, and I went through the lengthy and complicated process all over again. This time with The Hartford's agent over the telephone...
three weeks passed when, I received a notice from the State of Pennsylvania, stating that It had been reported to them that my auto policy had been canceled. New forms and legalese from the state to sign, that I had not driven my vehicles while the policy and been canceled.
The Hartford had notified the state of the cancellation, thus causing my insurance rate to go up. Essentially the Hartford told me that some part of the form had not been signed, and there was nothing I could do about it.
They left me scrambling for a new policy, at thanks to the Hartford, now at a a higher rate too.
It cost me 265.00 to find a new auto insurance policy and pronto.
The additional auto insurance forms are going to be real trouble in the state of Pennsylvania and The Hartford is going to screw you if make some understandable mistake on these things. Like miss a signature somewhere on these lengthy and confusing things!
We do not live in a Nazi Police State where insurance companies like the Hartford have the right to report unsigned documents to the authorities and compile a dossier on you, the irrelevant discarded customer.
My advice is to refrain from using the AARP and The HARTFORD .
Pennsylvania is also going to have a huge quagmire of problems over these silly and what should be unnecessary forms.
