What you Need to Know


April, May and June are peak storm and tornado months in the U.S. High winds, hail and flooding from storms and runoff can bring devastating losses each Spring. But that's just the beginning. Hurricane season begins in June, and wildfires threaten much of the U.S. throughout the year. It's important to be sure you and your family have a plan to stay safe and that you understand how your insurance policies work to help you recover, if disaster strikes.

Preparing for Extreme Weather: Don't Wait Until it's too Late
Unpredictable weather patterns are becoming more frequent as some regions see different types of catastrophic events or more intense weather activity. Leading to several consecutive record-breaking years in the number of severe weather events.

Navigating the Claims Process: Recover & Rebuild
After a loss, you want to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Navigating the insurance claims process is critical to getting the money you're owed.

Disaster Preparedness
Wildfires, flooding, tornadoes, hurricanes-disaster strike everywhere in the U.S. That's why Spring is a good time to make sure your insurance needs are in order, especially your homeowners or renter's policies.

My Insurance Doesn't Cover What?
An insurance policy for your home or apartment is supposed to provide a sense of security. But before you get too comfortable, take time to speak to your agent or insurer to understand what's covered and what's not in your homeowners or renters policy.

Flooding - Know Your Coverage, Understand Your Risk
The best time to review your flood insurance options is before a flood occurs. Without understanding your risk and insurance options, you might find yourself inadequately covered when you need coverage the most.

Disaster Preparedness: Act Now to Make Filing A Claim Easier After the Storm
