Nine years ago my family and I purchased a long term care policy for my mother from Tobe Gerard. Tobe was wonderful to work with, helping us find a policy that was affordable and that provided a basic safety net for my mother. Now, my mother is 92 years old and needs to draw on her policy benefits. I called Tobe for help in navigating the claims process. She jumped right in, got things moving and my mother is now receiving needed benefits. What impressed me most about Tobe is that she not only works hard to find the best insurance products for her customers, she also cares that the policies she sells deliver on the benefits they promise.
