Prudential Financial History

Prudential Financial Inc was founded in New Jersey in 1875 by John F. Dryden. It was originally called The Widows and Orphans Friendly Society, and then the Prudential Friendly Society. At the beginning the company’s only product was burial insurance.

By the turn of the century, Prudential was making the bulk of its profits selling industrial life insurance door-to-door. Industrial workers paid double what others paid for life insurance because of the danger involved in their work. High lapse rates meant that only one in twelve policies reached maturity.

Today Prudential Financial is a financial services company. With its subsidiaries, the company provide insurance, investment management, life insurance, annuities, mutual funds, pension and retirement investments,  securities, asset management, and brokerage services in more 30 countries.

Prudential is a Fortune 500 company, has been publicly traded since 2001, is composed of hundreds of subsidiaries with $2 trillion of life insurance, has over 50,000 employees, and had $34.4 billion in revenue in 2011.

RE: Policy 430-526-346

Dear Manager,

The current beneficiary on the above policy is Doris Jean Hooper at Bolivar, MO, 65613-2412. She died in December, 2011 and it was only recently that I looked at this policy. Please change the beneficiary to my second wife, Katherine Louise Hooper at , Bolivar, MO 656132-2412. Or, send me the necessary forms if I need to initiate the change in another way.

There are two policies for my brothers: Robert L. Hooper, policy 430 526 345 at his last known address, Bolivar, MO 54513. He died in 2001 and I have no idea who his beneficicary is or if his policy is still in effect. Could you please give me that information?

Policy 430 526 344 is for David M. Hooper who is still living. Is his policy still in effect? If so, I will notify him and he can contact you directly.

If I need to direct my enquiry to another address, please notify me. Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your assistance.

William L. Hooper, PhD

As a long time Prudential stockholder, I’m completely shocked by the lack of knowledge and customer service regarding the payment of my late husband’s life insurance policy. I sent a certified letter over a month ago and am still having to make regular calls having to explain over and over again Prudential’s errors. There were many recorded calls I have documented where I was given the correct information, but paid incorrectly. The case workers can’t figure out the correct payment of interest for the state of Georgia that I’ve explained so many times and was told many times by several Prudential representatives on recorded calls. Metlife easily paid the other insurance claim with the correct amount of interest. This has been such a frustrating experience!

Dear John Strongeld-CEO Prudential,
You need to be aware of lack of communications, and NO customer Service for any of your supervisors and staff at all locations- divisions of Prudential. Supervisor calls back with no updated information and no return phone #, will not give information to file a complaint either. This is after numerous days, weeks, hours of calling-really!
All of these divisions no resolution- Prudential Financial Advisor, Advantage, Command, CompuStore. If you want to be a client of Prudential any division you must be prepared to work always. Let the record show still they have not found my account.

To whom it may Concern,
Local brokerages where not helpful in the Frankfort, IL. I had to call Schaumburg office to get transferred to main customers service number. She was helpful to offer some kind of solution.
I have placed numerous calls to locate my account, been informed to call Advantage, Wells Fargo, Command, CompuStore, and the list goes on…Still no resolution of my account that I thought I was going to invest additional funds. Written letters to CEO’s and shareholders of lack of communications, and no customer service, only inconvenience to the client. Will need to share with all my peers and colleague of how Prudential is currently doing business..
Waiting for this issue to be resolved!

I am totally discusted with prudential. My husband has been collecting disability insurance for 2and 1/2 years(getting cut off 3 times). He had back surgery (fusion with equipment). His doctor says he can not sit, stand,bend, twist or walk for any length of time. But prudential says he can get a full time job. Keep in mind he is also on pain medication. He sleeps 3/4 of the day because of the pain and the pain killers. I dont know if prudential is discriminating against him for some reason or they are just scammers. I was told having disability insurance was financial security it has been nothing but a nightmare and definetly not financial security because i had to fight every step of the way for my benifits. and am now starting my 3rd fight.
