Customer Welcome Center
Your NEW Insurance Policy

At a minimum, every new customer receives the following documents:

Declarations Page: Lists Named Insured, Policy #, Effective Date, Insured Property/Autos, Coverages, Limits, Deductibles, Premium, etc.
Policy Jacket: This is the actual policy with Insuring Agreement, Definitions, Conditions, Exclusions, etc.
Identification Cards: Vehicle policies come with ID cards that list Named Insured, Drivers, Vehicles, Effective Date, etc.

Please look over the whole package, but in particular, verify everything is correct on these documents. If you have any questions, identify errors, or are missing expected documents, call the agency as soon as possible.

Your RENEWAL Insurance Policy

Renewal offers generally come out 45-60 days before renewal. Offers are either mailed or available on-line for customers that have elected to go paperless. Please look over the entire package to read important messages about your policy, offers for adjustments or discounts, changes in terms, etc. If anything has changed in your household, changes to your policies may be appropriate. Call us for a free Annual Insurance Review.

Your Premium & Payment Options

You can pay your premium in full or on an installment plan with payment fees. If you did not pay your premium in full when you purchased the policy, you will receive a billing notice separate from your policy package within several days.

Payments can be accepted in the form of cash, check, money order, credit card, debit card, check by phone, or bank draft. Some policies may offer a discount if the premium is paid in full at the beginning of the policy period.

Canceling Your Prior Policy

We understand it can be stressful to change agencies or insurance carriers. At your request, we will contact your prior insurance carrier and ask them to terminate your old policy and send you a refund of unearned premium.

We can contact your prior carrier via a 3-way phone call including you although most customers prefer we send a letter, fax, or e-mail on their behalf. If you prefer we send the notice to cancel on your behalf, we have a notice form that you can sign.

Earning & Preserving Discounts

Some customers receive discounts that require providing a verification document or completing certain steps. If these steps are not taken, the discounts may be lost.

Be sure you read your renewal offer for information about new discounts or documents you may need to submit to preserve existing discounts. Ask us for an Annual Insurance Review to make sure you are getting all the discounts you are eligible to receive.

Legal Documents

Some customers select or reject certain coverages or exclude persons from coverage and that requires signing certain legal documents. Documents may be signed on paper or electronically signed in some circumstances.
