My wife was making a claim on her deceased father and she was one of the beneficiaries of three sisters. Communication with Manulife is bad. It does not matter if you get the agency to communicate with Manulife or do it yourself, they put you through to the call center that has limited training and when asking for a manager or supervisor level for Manulife they will not pass you on to them.

Try to change my policy address and bank account to my US address and customer service doesn't know how to enter a US address. Kept me 70 min on the phone and then tells me there is a system problem.
Cannot understand a US postal code format.
Still on the phone
My boyfriend recently passed away and he had life insurance through Manulife. I contacted them about his passing and the plant that he used to work at. The first time I called they couldn't find his policy so I need to call his old workplace to get the policy number. I called them back and the women I spoke to ended up not being able to find it she put me to another department and took them 2 minutes to find the policy. They told me that I would have to get papers filled out by the company he had worked for and then there were parts I would have to fill out. So I called his old employer back and told them they said that they found his paperwork for the insurance and that I wasn't the beneficiary and that she would contact them to see if he had changed it. So the insurance got back to her and told her there was no active policy at the time of his death which doesn't make sense because he was getting disability payment through them so he would have to have an active policy and why would the women I spoke to before tell me to get the papers filled out and send them in if the policy wasn't active. So I don't know if I should call them again to see if I can get a straight answer out of them or not. Seem like they don't know what there doing.
I have had to deal with Manulife for years as they are the provider for my employer's group benefits. I've had the same employer for about 7 years, so I've had multiple interactions with Manulife. They are ALWAYS hard to deal with, representatives are incompetent, and after the experience I just had I am absolutely convinced they are crooks who are likely scamming thousands of people out of money they are entitled to. Through my work benefits, I am covered 100% up to $3000 for Mental Health Services (in my case, I was submitting a claim for a marriage clinical counselling session which as per the fine print in my coverage statement falls under an eligible practitioner). Get this... a 50-minute session at the clinic I attend is $130. That is a set flat rate and does not change depending on how many people attend. So if I do a session on my own - $130 - if I do a session with my husband - also $130. True to form, Manulife only reimbursed me half of the cost of the appointment because my husband isn't covered under my plan. This should not matter! If a marriage counselling session was say $200 instead of the normal $130 I would completely understand why Manulife wouldn't cover the additional cost for someone who isn't covered under the plan...BUT THERE IS LITERALLY NOT ONE PENNY MORE COMING OUT OF MANULIFE'S BUDGET TO PAY ME OUT!!!! It's gut-wrenching that amidst global crisis all I'm trying to do is seek mental health services and a company that nets billions of dollars each year is trying to scam me out of $65 because "that is just how it's processed". I sincerely hope someone starts investigating this company because they are horrible.
