I worked with Hersh, Ariel, and two of their associates. They were all prompt, very responsive, paid attention to detail, understood my objectives, and were superb when it came to staying on top of the process with the provider of the maturing annuity and seeing the funds transfer and issue of new policy documents through to completion.
I have had a great experience with WebAnnutities Insurance Agency. I have found the website to be well designed and informative. After calling, I found the service to be excellent. Different annuitues were offered an recomendations for my particular situation were on target. I will recommed WebAnnutities Insurance Agency highly and plan on using their services in the future.
Their service was personable, knowledgeable, and professional. If you're looking for annuities, try them first. You will not be disappointed.
In a straight forward and understandable fashion Hersh Stern's firm makes buying an annuity an endeavor that anyone seeking long term safe income should consider. If you have a IRA or 401k you owe to yourself to have this firm run your numbers. There is no pressure and the materials provided explain how one goes about converting the tax deferred nest egg into an income stream. Once you decide you are interested give them a call. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that the person answering the phone can quickly locate your information and help answer your questions. Once you decide to make a purchase, the staff will help you complete the paperwork in an organized and efficient fashion. Few "service sector" firms exceed my expectations these days, but the Hersh Stern Agency knocks the ball out of the park.
When I asked for an online annuity quote, I was expecting to be inundated with follow-up sales calls. Instead, Immediate Annuities sent me the information, exactly as promised, and nothing more. There was no high pressure, no nuisance follow-up sales calls.
After reviewing everything over a period of several months, I placed a call to place my order. My order was processed promptly, as agreed.
Approached this website with trepidation but was bowled over by their professionalism, knowledge, and consistently doing exactly what they said they would do. I approached WebAnnuities with a rollover involving time constraints. They carefully explained my options and cleared up every ambiguity and question. They always answered their phone and often replied to emails within minutes. After I chose an annuity, their guidance through the process was flawless and the careful attention to detail regarding instructions for document completion was awesome. Everyone involved in the process was great to work with; can't recommend them highly enough.
My wife and I needed to make a decision on a rollover yet could not reach a decision that made sense to both of us. Then along came Hersh! After doing my homework I realized the best choice was the direction Hersh provided. My wife and I finally were able to agree. Hersh exceeded our expectation of service. He answered all my questions accurately, educated me on some basics I had forgotten, and provided me with information which proved to be excellent. We did a conference call with my wife, the corporation she worked for, Hersh, and me. He was watching over us; carefully listening and asking the right questions in order to make sure the rollover was handled properly and smoothly. We chose two different annuities with the same company. Kyle showed the same professional, yet personal attention as Hersh. They are knowledgable, very accomodating, and reliable.
Hersh Stern's website, immediateAnnuities.com, gave me the quotes I needed to get started without having to talk with anyone or give out any personal information. I liked that! Once I made the commitment, WebAnnuities made the whole process very easy. Everyone I talked with was professional and polite. When I am ready to buy another annuity, I will definitely work with them again!
This is an excellent company to work with. The people I talked with were very pleasant and professional. I asked for several options and they quickly explained them and even sent me additional information. You won't be disappointed with them.
I was concerned over purchasing an annuity over the net. However, all dealings were by phone, straightforward, low key, easy. I had a choice of 15 company offerings rather than just one from a sole company representative. Money transfers go directly to the company chosen, or if transferring funds, from that account to the company. All questions were handled promptly by Hersch's staff. In fact, Hersch himself called me at 8 PM the night before the July 4th holiday--that's service. No need to contact a local representative--go directly to Web Annuities--remember, they act as an agent and continue to do so after you've made a purchase.
My first contact was with [private data removed] who was very couteous and eager to help.Then [private data removed] took over and also was very knowledgeable and helpful. I had a pretty good idea what type of annuity I wanted and both these gentlemen answered my questions without trying to steer me away from my ultimate goals. Everything went quite smoothly and any small glitches were taken care of promptly.
All in all, a very pleasing and rewarding experience!
It was an interesting learning experience as to how you can put your money to the best uses possible and make your retirement years more financially comfortable. Everyone I dealt with was very helpful, accommodating, and informative. A friend recommended them to me and now I know why!
The representatives at Web Annuities kept me informed about every step of the process in the purchase of my annuity. They answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly with patience and consideration. After completing my paperwork, they called me daily to update me on the progress of my purchase until the transaction was complete and the first payments arrived in my bank. I can't speak highly enough about the quality of service I received from them.
My experience with WebAnnuities was professional right from the first point of contact. I especially appreciated their quick response to any questions I had. They have multiple investment options and are extremely knowledgeable and easy to understand. I highly recommend their products and services.
My experience with WebAnnuities has been fantastic from the beginning of my process all the way to the end of getting a great program. Throughout the entire process I had all my concerns, questions, etc answered in a clear description because I was not very well versed on this process. I worked with Kyle and Ariel from beginning to end. If I called with a question or concern, if either were not available at the time of my call, they called me back shortly thereafter. Kyle was very knowledgeable in reviewing the paperwork with me and answered all my questions in a professional and courteous manner. Ariel was also right there to walk me through the problems experienced with transferring my funds from another company. We had many conference calls with this company and Ariel worked on making this transfer work before hanging up with the other company. The follow-up by both of these gentlemen was impressive. Thank you so very much for all your excellent service, Kyle and Ariel.
I had reservations about doing this online but after reading the reviews online I decided to go ahead. They were friendly, professional, and knowledgable. I never felt talked down to or pressured in any way.They made the complicated uncomplicated and kept me informed at each step. I would use this company again and would reccomend to others.
I wouldn't normally have gone to an online source for making a big financial commitment, but the annuities broker I was referred to locally wanted extra payment as a financial adviser, too.
So I checked out what WebAnnuities offered, and was impressed by the clarity of the options presented - and by the complete information offered. Also by the speed of his helpful response to my questions. Now I'm very satisfied with the annuity that I chose, and have been delighted with the efficiency & speed of the process. I have full confidence in the integrity of Hersh Stern and his staff after this happy experience. Highly recommended.
After an early retirement and out of state move, I contacted WebAnnuities.com for their expertise on immediate annuities. Upon completion of the easy step by step process on line, I spoke with Kyle who was professional, knowledgable and courteous. He was patient with my many questions and clearly explained the process verbally and in writing. I have recently received my first payment on time and would recommend WebAnnuities.com! Service is definitely a priority in their company!
I started watching WebAnnuities online about two years ago. I was comparing other investments to see what would be best for us. When it was time to make a decision, I contacted ImmediateAnnuities and spoke with Kyle. He sent me all the information I needed to pick what would be best for us. He helped us pick what was needed. Kyle was very Professional. I know it is his job, but you can tell he went the extra mile for us. I would definitely recommend WebAnnuities.
I compared WebAnnuites with Vanguard and found much better deals with reputable companies at WebAnnuities. The process was clear, easy, and quick. I have recommended WebAnnuities to my friends.
I knew I needed an immediate annuity but had no idea which companies offered them, and how reliable they were. I initiated a search on the internet and liked the way WebAnnuities.com presented the information. They were timely in responding to my questions in layman's terms. Hersh explained exactly how their process worked. And the process of obtaining what I wanted was flawless. I've already recommended WebAnnuities.com to others.
We have used Web Annuities several times over the last 8 years for immediate annuities. Each time the service has been extremely professional and very satisfactory. We have never had a problem in our many transactions. The information they provided is very timely and extensive without being couched in purely industry based language. We have been very happy in our dealings with Web Annuities.
I have been a registered insurance agent for years. After I retired I knew that at a certain age I was going to buy an immediate annuity. My experience with immediateannuities.com was very professional.
The whole process was stress free. Everything turned out exactly as planned. It was a treat to be able to review what all the companies had to offer and then pick the one entirely on our own that met our individual needs. Keep up the good work! Thank you for everything! Eldora
I highly recommend the WebAnnuities services to any person who might need them.
This company is a rare exception of excellence and uncommon professionalism at these murky financial times. This company creates an amazingly clear path for its customers amidst the financial and regulatory chaos of the current market.
My experience on opening an annuity for my 90 year old mother was quite easy. Hersh was able to address the specific needs of my mother and the process was quite smooth. The intricacies of annuities were explained in layman terms that even my 90 year old mother could understand. My mother and I were extremely pleased and would do business with Hersh Stern again.
I had been reviewing annuities on the Immediate Annuities website for more than a year. I was very wary of dealing with a company by email and mail only when investing a substantial amount of capital. Through several telephone conversations with reps of Immediate Annuities, I was impressed with there knowledge and very helpful advice. All documentation was easy to read and simple to understand. The free return mailer was convenient to use and sped up the purchase process.
I would recommend Immediate Annuities to anyone looking to invest in an annuity. There is absolutely no pressure to purchase and the representatives I talked to were very concerned that I understood everything offered and felt comfortable with my final choice.
At this point, I have only received the first scheduled annuity payment. But, it occurred on schedule, and for the expected amount.
May well use the service again in the not distant future.
There were three steps involved. I found the preliminary research conducted online to be easy to do without help. When I asked for the quotes I got a simple to read package which was of great help. When I returned the package and Ariel Hersh took actual charge of my project, everything worked like clockwork from beginning to receipt of the first payment.
I LOVED DEALING WITH HERSH STERN AND ARIEL. EVERYTHING WAS EXPLAINED TO ME SO NICELY. I DID NOT FEEL PRESSURED, AND THEY WERE VERY EASY TO DEAL WITH. IF I DID HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ALL I HAD TO DO WAS CALL AND ALWAYS GOT TO TALK TO SOMEONE WITH NO WAITING. INFORMATION WAS TAKEN BY PHONE AND BY MAIL AND DONE SO VERY PROMPTLY. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND WEBANNUITIES FOR ANYONE, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. NOT MANY PLACES NOW A DAYS THAT YOU CAN DEAL WITH FRIENDLY PEOPLE DIRECTLY INSTEAD OF ANSWERING MACHINES AND RECORDINGS.
WebAnnuities answered all my questions and concerns responsively and promptly.
All communications happened as expected and the transaction went through without any problem.
