Vacant Homeowners Insurance

When does an insurance company consider my home vacant? 95% of homeowners do not understand what happens to their insurance on their home when their house becomes empty or unoccupied.  Most people find out they do not have any coverage after submitting a claim because they failed to let their insurance agents know that their situation has changed. Every homeowners insurance policy is different, but one fact remains consistent no matter what company you are insured with, that is homeowner insurance companies will not continue to insure a home if the home is not being lived in by the primary homeowner. Right now with the forclosure market at an all-time high, there are thousands of homes that have no insurance…

Tips For Smooth Sailing This Season

Before you take that first pleasure cruise or  fishing trip of the season, make sure your boat insurance is shipshape. Insuring a boat is different than insuring a car or home. Boats require specialized coverages. To avoid a sinking feeling about your boat insurance, consider these tips from the experts at The Progressive Group of Insurance Companies: Evaluate your specific needs. Some insurance companies provide no-frills boat coverage that is simply added to an existing auto or homeowners policy. While this sounds good in theory, the reality is that your boat may be best covered if you seek out a specialized policy just for boats, not an add-on to your car or house policy.

Lloyd’s Expects Large Loss from Suez Canal Blockage

The blockage of the Suez Canal for nearly a week will result in a “large loss” for Lloyd’s of London, its chairman said on Wednesday, as the insurance market recorded a 900 million pound ($1.2 billion) pretax loss in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Software Vendors Would Have to Disclose Breaches to U.S. Government Users Under Planned Order

SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON – A planned Biden administration executive order will require many software vendors to notify their federal government customers when the companies have a cybersecurity breach, according to a draft seen by Reuters. A National Security Council spokeswoman said no decision has been made on the final content of the executive order. The order could be released as early as next week. The SolarWinds Corp hack, which came to light in December, showed “the federal government needs to be able to investigate and remediate threats to the services it provides the American people early and quickly.

What Is The Best Way To Insulate A Garage?

Garage Insulation Basics Garages are notoriously hard to keep warm in the wintertime, which is why many individuals select to insulate their garage walls throughout the off-season.

In warmer areas, it may make more feeling to purchase heavy insulation for the garage wall surfaces and less so on the roofing system.
