COVID-19 Insurance Resources via PIA
As you have probably noticed, there is no lack of information regarding aspects of the novel coronavirus COVID-19 from many sources.
You are reading the weekly PIA newsletter, which features a broad selection of news items that are of specific interest to our independent insurance agent members. In addition, PIA’s news circulates among the broader insurance industry and also includes legislators, regulators and other policymakers.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, however long it lasts, we will continue to share information that may be of interest to our audience that relates to PIA, the insurance industry, and small businesses such as independent insurance agencies. We will continue to bring you the key information you have come to rely upon from PIA. We have a strong commitment to report only what is credible. We will also continue to report non-COVID-19 news about PIA and our industry. The full range of PIA’s business will continue.
