Hi Ray, Great news…..Carol and I want to thank you for guiding us through the important LTC planning journey. Your specialized experience and knowledge of LTC along with you certification made us feel very comfortable as we went through the process. Also, your patience was so very much appreciated. As I mentioned to you yesterday on the phone it is difficult for us to admit that we are at the age of this getting old “stuff”. Although the monthly payment is like having a permanent car payment we realize that this is certainly different. There will be no depreciation and more importantly it will have a very positive impact and will provide peace of mind knowing that this getting old “stuff” will be a lot less painless for each of us when it is time to utilize the CARE. I wish we could have thanked you in person so you could see the happiness in our faces.
My wife and I highly recommend Ray to anyone interested in Long Term Care, and we have already forwarded his name to others. Most important to me, we never felt pressured in any way to buy a particular policy or any policy at all. My wife and I are relative newcomers to the LTC world, so we needed lots of help. Ray was VERY responsive to my MANY questions and requests for information. He answered our e-mails and phone calls quickly and effectively, but without any pressure to buy. We also liked that his premium estimate turned out to be right on target. Hopefully we will never need to use our policy, but at least it brings us some peace of mind for now.

My husband and I highly recommend Ray Voelkle as an independent long-term care insurance agent. He’s very professional and patient and did not apply any pressure to choose one insurer or policy over another. He answered all our questions honestly and made the whole decision-making and application process convenient and easy for us. We had been researching long-term care insurance for 5-6 years but there are so many choices it felt overwhelming. When we turned 55 in 2010, we knew it was time to purchase LTCi while we are still healthy and before rates go up even more. Ray helped us sift through all the information about long-term care insurance and we are very pleased with the policy we purchased. It’s a very good value and we feel as if a burden has been lifted from our shoulders! As we approach retirement, we feel confident that our long-term care needs will be taken care of and we will not become a burden for our two sons. We look forward to continuing our professional relationship with Ray!

We wanted to take a moment to thank you for your help in selecting long term care insurance. You were always available and promptly answered any and all questions we had. The spreadsheets you provided comparing plans and inputting different options were invaluable. We enjoyed working with you and felt you always had our best interests in mind. We look forward to working with you in the future and to having a continued partnership.

By far, Ray Voelkle surpassed in expertise and compassion to every other LTCi specialist we spoke with (and we do our homework!). He was always available, immediately responsive, unfailingly patient with our questions, highly informed, open and honest, supportive and happy to advise, eager to respond to our numerous queries, personable, and professional! We have extremely high standards for experts with whom we talk about complicated technical matters, and we were happy with virtually all encounters with Ray. We are thrilled with our policy and we are confident that we have made the right decisions; this is all due to Ray’s superior service and advice. He has earned our respect and we have already unreservedly recommended him to our friends and colleagues.

Hi Ray, I received the packet in the mail on Friday and mailed the application and check yesterday. Thanks for all of your help, as well as your patience. It’s so good to do business with someone as nice as you, who is not pushy, but keeps in touch by phone and e-mail just to let me know that you are available when I am! That meant a lot to me. In our busy life we put off things that need to be done, and should have been done……in my case, years ago. I am so glad I was available to take your call last week. THANKS FOR LOOKING OUT FOR ME.
When I begun the quest earlier this year for obtaining LTC insurance for my wife and I, I was fortunate to have stumbled upon Ray Voelkle’s web-site. From the first step to the last step, Ray was both knowledgeable about the ins and outs of LTC insurance and patience enough to take the time for me to understand. Ray was a “Teacher” of LTC insurance and I was his student. He wanted to make sure I understood how LTC insurance worked and that I felt comfortable with the new knowledge I had obtained before ever discussing buying LTC insurance. Ray took the time to learn about my wife and I, our needs, our wants, and our financial situation . He helped guide us in obtaining the best LTC insurance coverage we could afford. I would highly recommend Ray to anyone, who first of all, is interested in knowing more about LTC insurance (in other words become the student) and second of all, who wants to receive very good service from a very knowledgeable LTC insurance broker. When it was all said and done, I thought Ray more as a friend trying to assist me rather than someone trying to sell me insurance.

Ray, thank you so much for the tremendous job you did in helping my wife Christine and I find the right Long-Term Care Insurance Policy for our future needs. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional person to help us in this important family planning endeavor. Not only do we consider you an expert in the field of Long-Term Care, but more importantly we considered you as a valued friend and confidant throughout the entire process from application through approval and writing of our policy. Despite some medical issues with my wife, we were so impressed that you were able to find us another Insurer who accepted my wife’s situation at the same coverage and terms we were looking for. Please don’t hesitate Ray to use us as future referrals as we couldn’t have been happier with your counsel and superb customer service. You are a rarity today when it comes to customer service and good old fashioned two-way communications. Our many thanks again for a job well done!!
Since we are on the same page I won’t take up your time. I ever so appreciate the excellent way you handled this with me. You certainly explained things to me very clearly and along the way you saved me some money. Most importantly you did not try to sell me something else. You stated to me I had a good policy and saw no reason to try to get rid of what I had. I so respect people who can do this. Everyone today just want to make money and it does not matter the expense to someone else. For this I cannot express my gratitude but let me assure you it is greatly appreciated.
When my husband and I began looking for a LTC policy, I took the time to find an agent that specialized in LTC, who would be very knowledgeable about what was available and what company and plan would be the best match for our needs. I found this in Ray Voelkle. He made the special effort to find out what we wanted and needed in a LTC plan and found the right company and plan for us. When I had questions, he took the time to answer them, sending me articles of interest that further explained what I needed to know to make the right decision for us. Once we had decided on the right plan for us, he took care of all the paperwork, making the process so stress free and easy for us.
