It’s Nice to be Appreciated

Nice Job, Kim!

Flood Insurance – Now There Are Options

Private insurers are entering the flood insurance marketplace. That means competition with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), which means you may be able to get a lower price for the same coverage!

We’re seeing lower pricing come in on policies that have a premium of $1000 or more annually. And they’re coming in about 15 to 20% lower than NFIP! This is on policies that are in most “A” zones (high-risk) and even “V” zones (subject to potential flooding by wave action; i.e., shorefront). Commercial properties, too!

If Hurricane Harvey didn’t get you thinking about flood insurance maybe saving a few bucks will.

Grab your current policy and call us. We’ll see if you might be in line to save some significant $ at your next renewal!

Got Flood? Hurricane Harvey should have you thinking.

Lives, homes and businesses have been destroyed by the thousands by Hurricane Harvey. And even more tragic is that it is not over. Get Flood Insurance.  At least find out how much it would cost you.

The best way to fight a disaster is to be prepared for one.  Call us.  Now.


Auto Insurance in CT Minimum Limits to Increase

The state mandatory liability limits for personal auto policies will increase as of Jan. 1, 2018, after Gov. Dannel Malloy signed Public Act 17-114. The current state minimum limits are $20,000 for injury or death of one person;$40,000 for damages by reason of bodily injury or death per accident; and $10,000 for property damage. Beginning Jan. 1, all automobile liability insurance policies delivered, issued for delivery, renewed, amended or endorsed in Connecticut must have at least $25,000, $50,000 and $25,000 respectively. Uninsured/underinsured minimum limits also will increase to match the new 25/50 limits.

Go here to view the bulletin issued by the CT Insurance Department earlier this month.

We urge you to consider higher limits than the state minimums.  Call us now at 203-377-4394 to get pricing or more info on this!
