No-Cost Consumer Protection: Life Insurance Registry FindYourPolicy.com Allows Free Signups
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- FindYourPolicy.com, the world's only global life insurance registry, is now offering free signups in order to make its consumer protection service available to more people.
"The issue of unclaimed life insurance money – and whether insurance companies are doing enough to locate beneficiaries – is heating up around the country, including recent coverage by The Wall Street Journal," said Michael Hartmann, CEO of FindYourPolicy.com. "We're doing more than just talking about it. We're providing a service to make sure insurance money goes where it's supposed to go – and we changed our business model to make it even easier for people to get the money they need and deserve."
Now, at FindYourPolicy.com, the only charge is for searching - $9.95 per search. Registration is free.
"People around the world have expressed support for our mission," said Hartmann. "But many said it would be better if we charged those who actually search, so that's what we're doing. Now we are a free consumer protection service to those with life insurance."
Recently featured in publications such as Insure.com, MSNMoney and others around the country, FindYourPolicy.com is the answer to the problem of unclaimed beneficiary money – potentially hundreds of millions of dollars annually, by some estimates.
"Instead the money goes back to the insurance companies – it's such a shame," said Hartmann. "We're the company the insurance companies don't want you to know about, but we're here every day fighting the good fight. Now if only all life insurance companies informed their agents to sign each of their clients up, for free, on FindYourPolicy.com's database, this would no longer be a major issue."
Registering at FindYourPolicy.com only takes a few moments, and from that point on the insured and their beneficiaries can immediately get the information they need. FindYourPolicy.com benefits include:
- For only $9.95 U.S., loved ones can search FindYourPolicy.com's database.
- Included in the fee is valuable FREE information and website links.
- All that is needed are the last four digits of the person's government-issued personal identification number (Social Security number in the United States).
- A portion of revenue goes to cancer research.
"A lot of people don't know the name of their loved one's life insurance company, let alone the policy number," said Hartmann. "This is a serious problem that is recognized only when it is too late. Our solution is easy, it's secure and it's the best way to make sure life insurance money goes where it's supposed to go."
