I could literally write a book on the bad experiences that many citizens are having to deal with when it comes to their insurance companies. I do understand that many of the companies are simply doing their job. Many are trying to do the best policies for their clients. I also understand that financially many people can't get the best plans due to high deductibles. Some simply didn't read the fine print and may have gotten lost in the sauce and some would say.

However, during last year we could not have thought that we would have gotten the devastation that we did. I have heard several of my friends who have had bad experiences with their insurance companies. Many have had to file claims because their homes were damaged and many have been dropped by their insurance companies because of it. What really bothers me is that if you have been with this insurance company for years and have made payments over the years. There should be some type of loyalty to your clients for being upstanding customers. I guess many just don't see it that way.

This insurance town hall will be able to help with 5 things that you need to know as far as dealings with the Hurricanes last year.

  • August 27 Claim deadline
  • How you should document you claims
  • Learn important information about the law that can require your carrier to pay penalties
