Have you purchased insurance through the PPOA Insurance Agency? Did you notice a new deduction on your paycheck under the code “SFA” that you did not authorize? Did a CRC representative call or contact you about moving your payroll deduction away from PPOA? If so, you must read the following and complete our online form as soon as possible to protect yourself!
Late last year, PPOA fired insurance brokerage firm “CRC”, their managing agent Mike Slade and their sales team. “CRC and Mike Slade simply did not meet our high standards” states PPOA President Brian Moriguchi. “PPOA members expect ethical and honest treatment from anyone representing PPOA and this group simply did not meet our standards.” This week, we learned CRC instructed the Stentorians (payroll code SFA) to deduct money from PPOA insurance customers without getting the required permission from the individual employees! This resulted in some employees being double deducted! PPOA immediately contacted the County and asked them to investigate. The County has advised us that the Stentorians will be required to pay all the money back to our members that was deducted without authorization.
To ensure the Stentorians, CRC and Mike Slade cannot do this again and to ensure your insurance stays with PPOA, we have created an online form for any county employee who purchased insurance through the PPOA Insurance Agency. Please complete the online form which will take only a minute. PPOA will then forward these documents to the Stentorians, CRC, and Mike Slade as well as to the County of Los Angeles to protect the employees’ rights and to ensure the employees can continue to benefit from PPOA’s high level of service and backing for the insurance products purchased through PPOA.
