Increase in premium leaves widow dismayed

On July 15, I received notice that my long-term care insurance policy premiums would be raised 76.5 percent.

I am stunned, dismayed, angry.

My husband, recently deceased, and I have carried this insurance since 1998.

The company recently agreed to a small settlement for his lengthy hospitalization and care.

I have contacted Sen. Tim Cullen and Rep. Paul Ryan. Sen. Cullen's office is actively pursuing the matter. Paul Ryan has yet to respond.

I would like to have others be aware of this, to me, injustice to a senior citizen on Social Security.
