“In a role like ‘Supervisory Officer’ you never think you will need to access your insurance. What we forget is: at any time (because we are unprotected by a union), we may need to access this support. I never would have thought I would need this service and I feel blessed that I had it as I would not have been able to pay for it out-of-pocket, and ultimately benefit as I did. This has nothing to do with being great at your job. At any time you could be under fire for anything, and you will need some support.
Being under enormous stress, STERLON was supportive and guided me. The lawyers STERLON works with are top-notch experts in their field.
I am grateful that I paid for this assurance. STERLON is worth every cent!”
